Lois Morris

CHICKASHA — Funeral service for Lois Morris, 89, of Chickasha, will be held at 11 a.m., Saturday, May 18, 2013, at the Maranatha Baptist Church in Chickasha.  Lois was born June 13, 1923, the daughter of Elva L. and Eva Opal (Heavin) Keeton.  She died May 13, 2013, in Muskogee.

Lois and Jimmie M. Morris were married Sept. 19, 1943, in San Francisco, California.  She worked in the shipyard during the war.  After Jimmie’s discharge from the Army, they made their home and raised their daughters, Kay and Kathy, in Chickasha.  Lois worked as a nurse and medical assistant supervisor for Southern Plains Medical Center in Chickasha, retiring after 30 years.  She loved to garden and fish and enjoy the outdoors.  She was an excellent seamstress and never turned down a  request from a grandchild to stitch together an outfit or 20 pairs of “Jams”. Everyone knew not to call her until halftime or until the game was over on OU football and basketball games days.  She would be decked out in her crimson shirt and jewelry, in front of the TV, ready to root her team on.  She would be ready to travel anywhere at a moment’s notice.  She would put a casserole in the refrigerator for Jimmie, and off she went, coffee cup in hand.

Lois loved her family and friends and time spent with them was cherished.  She always looked forward to the Cement alumni banquets and seeing her classmates. Her house was a gathering place where everyone would meet.  If there was a piano player in the house, which there usually was, she was the songbird you  could hear above all the others.  She loved to play games, especially Scrabble and Sequence.  It was a common sight to walk into her house and see women squeezed in at the dining room table, visors perched above their brow, playing Sequence as long as they could, laughing and taunting each other in sing-song voices.
