Connie Louise Morris

March 5, 1947 - July 6, 2018     Age: 71

Connie Louise (Lynn) Morris, age 71, of Yulee, FL, passed away unexpectedly on July 6, 2018.

Born to Brian and Nora Louise (Williamson) Lynn on March 5, 1947 in Vidalia, GA, she moved to St. Mary’s, GA in her late teens.  Throughout her life, Connie remained closely connected to the community of Vidalia and her childhood friends and made new friends in St Mary’s.

Married to Charles Woodring Morris on September 27, 1969 in Vidalia, GA, Connie is survived by Charles, her children and grandchildren: Craig and Julie (Morris) Marl and their son Harry, George Morris, and Mike and Susan (Morris) Mannis and their sons Tyler and Derek. In addition to her children, she also leaves behind nephews Joe and Charlie Morris, along with many, many friends and relatives.

Connie was truly a unique character. She was vivacious, gregarious, quick of wit and always ready to share her thoughts – no matter what anyone else thought. She was loved for all these things. She loved to cook and entertain. Her home was open to all – there was always space at the table for one more person, and plenty to eat and drink, along with overwhelming helpings of laughter and joy. She will leave a hole in our world that can never be filled. 

Services will be held in the Burgess Chapel of Oxley-Heard Funeral Home in Fernandina Beach, FL at 2:00 pm on Wednesday, July 11, 2018 with a Celebration of Life reception immediately following at Karibo Café located at 3rd and Alachua in Fernandina Beach.

 In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Barnabas Center in Fernandina Beach, www.barnabasnassau.org/donate/  or Community Hospice & Palliative Care Foundation in Jacksonville, www.communityhospice.com/give

    My deepest and most sincere condolences to the Morris family. Mrs. Morris (She had asked me to call her Connie many times but I always wanted to give her, her proper respect) was always so very welcoming when I would come by her home with George. Her rapid rapartee with George was something akin to watching a tennis match at Wimbledon. She will be missed by all who had the pleasure of meeting her.

    My heart is aching at the sudden passing of such a vibrant person, taken from her loved ones way too soon. I can still picture her in her bridesmaid dress at my wedding 50 years ago in St. Marys, GA. Connie was thoroughly engaged with living life throughout her journey. Her no-nonsense approach could always make me laugh. She was fun just to listen to. I am grateful to have had her friendship & that she touched my life. . Her love for her family was huge & she didn’t miss an opportunity to visit daughters/grandchildren in Texas & Washington. She was a very good cook & enjoyed preparing meals with fresh vegetables from the gardens, meals made with love for those dear to her. My sincere condolences to husband Charlie and to her children & grandchildren. May the wonderful memories of her life mitigate the pain you are feeling.
