Patricia Lee (Siegel) Morrison Obituary

Patricia Lee (Siegel) Morrison, 82, passed away May 22, 2016. Our beloved mother was born in Wilkes Barre, Pa., to Harry and Phia Siegel along with one brother, Jim Siegel. They lived in Chicago, Long Island and El Paso, Texas. She graduated from Ysleta High School in El Paso and married her high school sweetheart, Billy Joe Morrison and was married for 56 years.

Patricia is survived by two daughters, Jo Lynn Farthing and husband Ronald of Las Cruces, Cheri Ciaramitaro and husband John of El Paso, Texas, one grandson Adam Ciaramitaro and grandson-in-law Donald Spicer, three great grandchildren Samantha Ciaramitaro, Joseph Spicer and Julian Ciaramitaro and nieces and nephews.

Patricia is preceded in death by her husband Bill Morrison, daughter Beth Ann Morrison, parents Harry and Phia Siegel, brother Jim Siegel and granddaughter Sarah Spicer.

Patricia worked for Sierra Blanca (now Ski Apache) for 35 years, starting as a ski instructor and ending her career there as marketing director. She will be greatly missed by her Friday night group at Tayvis Estates and all those that knew her.
Her daughters will always admire Moms many talents, she made us the most beautiful prom dresses, knitted gorgeous ski sweaters and helped decorate our homes.

A memorial service will be held Tuesday, May 31, 2016, at 11 a.m., at La Paz-Graham Funeral Home, 555 West Amador Blvd., Las Cruces, NM.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her honor to Mesilla Valley Hospice. Many thanks to all the nurses at Mesilla Valley Hospice as well as her Home Hospice nurse Margie Gleason and CNA Ashley and Social Worker Susan Walker.
