morrisPrecious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.

And precious to us was Adele Francine Buder Morris, born April 4, 1921, in Itta Bena, Mississippi to George and Bess Buder. She was married to the love of her life, Albert William Morris, for almost 50 years prior to his death in 1991.

With a deep faith in our Lord Jesus Christ she devoted her life to GOD and family. She was a “stay at home Mother” very involved in her children’s activities, and school PTA’s. At First Baptist Duncanville she was deeply committed to the women’s ministry through WMU, and the children’s Sunday Schools.

After raising her children she began a career with the Army Air Force Exchange service and traveled the world. During retirement she volunteered joyously at Charlton Methodist Hospital and as the librarian at her church, Hillcrest Baptist. She enjoyed traveling and fellowship with her friends and family. She loved her cats and collection of photo albums.

Adele passed from this life December 13, 2015, and is survived by her children: Daughter, Francine Wharton and husband, Buzz of Austin, TX; Son, Bil Morris and wife, Shaun of Scottsdale, AZ.; Daughter, Anita McSwain and husband, Randy of Greeley, CO; and Son, Ed Morris and wife, Margaret, of Duncanville; Grandchildren, Charlene Bradford and husband, Steven, Arthur Wharton, Wil Morris and wife, Kate, Sam Morris and wife, Christie, Kyle Morris and wife, Stephanie, Dan Morris and wife, Shelby, Koehn Templeton, Emily Templeton, Nicholas Morris and wife, Martina, Andrew Morris, Micah Morris and wife, Tessie, and Joseph Morris and wife, Britany. She is also survived by 16 Great Grandchildren, 5 nephews, and her beloved sister-in-law, Katherine Reamer.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, and sister, Molly Lawrence. Her legacy of endless faith, hope and love will forever be carried in our hearts.

Service is 10 AM, Friday, December 18, 2015 Hillcrest Baptist Church, Cedar Hill, TX.

Interment follows at Little Bethel Cemetery in Duncanville.

The family will receive friends from 6-8 PM Thursday at Jaynes Memorial Chapel in Duncanville.

jaynesThat is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 NLT
