She was born in Sand Mountain, Ala., and has been a resident of Chattanooga and North Georgia for more than 70 years. She was a member of Ridgedale Baptist Church. She had a passion for serving others. But her greatest love was for her family which included her husband, Tom Morrison; parents, Willie and Onie Hicks; her four sisters; and one brother, all who preceded her in death. Those who had the great honor of experiencing her love until the very end include her daughter, Diane (Mack) McCarley; and son Dee (Peggy) Morrison.

She had careers at Container Corporation and she retired from Textile Printing. The family would also like to thank her caregivers Anne Cross, who became her best friend, Gail McCleary and Lorietta Hubbard. You were a Godsend and we love you very much.
