The Standard Journal - - LOCAL -

Mrs. Martha Grace Mosley Mor­ris, age 86 of Aragon passed away Wed­nes­day evening, Sept. 7, 2016.

Mrs. Mor­ris was born Au­gust 22, 1930 in Polk County, daugh­ter of the late John Har­vey Mosley and the late Mary Fan­nie Stephen­son Mosley.

She was a mem­ber of the New Prospect Bap­tist Church for 70 years and re­tired in 1993 from her last ca­reer at Mu­rata Erie Cor­po­ra­tion.

Mrs. Mor­ris was an avid fan of the Atlanta Braves and the Atlanta Fal­cons. She loved to cook and her nieces and neph­ews would say a bologna sand­wich tasted bet­ter at her house than any­where else.

If you vis­ited her home you had to have some­thing to eat and drink, but her great­est love was her fam­ily.

She was pre­ceded in death by her hus­band, James Floyd “Shorty” Mor­ris on Feb. 23, 2010; son, Robert Har­vey Mor­ris; and a great-great-grand­son, Kyle Lynn Grif­fin.

She was the youngest of nine chil­dren, hav­ing been pre­ceded by five sis­ters, Agnes, Lemma, Vera, Mary and Doris and three brothers, Ster­ling, Gor­don and Jesse.

Sur­vivors in­cluded a daugh­ter, Care­lene Grif­fin and her hus­band LaMahta of Rome; three sons, Larry Mor­ris and his wife Su­san and Don­ald Mor­ris and his wife Robin all of Rock­mart and Keith Mor­ris of Nash­ville, Tenn.; ten grand­chil­dren, twenty-eight great-grand­chil­dren and four great­great-grand­chil­dren also sur­vived.

Funeral ser­vices for Mrs. Mor­ris were held on Satur­day, Sept. 10th at 2 p.m. in the chapel of the Free­man Har­ris Funeral Home with Rev. Barry Snapp and Rev. Owen (Bud) Davis Jr. of­fi­ci­at­ing.

Re­marks and eu­lo­gies were given by Mr. Larry Mor­ris and Mr. Mel­ton Moss.

The fol­low­ing gen­tle­men served as pall­bear­ers: Phil Blis­sitt, Casey Childers, Heath Mor­ris, Dal­ton Mor­ris, Chris Childers and Randy Cook.
