Edith Audrey Holmes Morris was born February 27, 1942 in Minskip, York, England to Arthur and Elsie Starmer Holmes. She departed this earth on August 23, 2017 at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston after a long and courageous battle with cancer.
Edith is preceded in death by her parents, her son Anthony D. Morris, and her grandchild Nicholas S. Morris.
She is survived by her husband of 58 years, David S. Morris, her son Kenneth R. Morris and spouse Gentry, son Jeffrey P. Morris and spouse Tommie Lynn, 3 grandchildren, Eric Morris, Emma Morris, and Leah Morris, and 2 step-grandchildren, Thomas Lusk and Austin Lusk. She is also survived by numerous family members still residing in England.
Edith enjoyed cooking, knitting, crossword puzzles, reading, and traveling to Rockport to enjoy the beach and bird-watch. She was a phenomenal cook and showed her love through food. In addition to preparing elaborate family meals, she knew what each family member's favorite dish was, and she enjoyed being able to prepare that meal or special treat for them when they visited.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that contributions be made to MD Anderson Cancer Center.
