For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the Heavens. 2 Corinthians 5:1 Dianne Morris, 73, of Conroe, Texas, passed away peacefully at home with her family by her side and went to be with her Heavenly Father on December 29, 2014. Dianne was born October 15, 1941, to Alaric and Marie Bonnette in Houston, Texas. She attended and graduated from St. Agnes High School in 1959. Throughout her life it was Dianne's faith in God that gave her personal peace and that inspired her to reach out to others less fortunate and to those in need. Her love and commitment to her husband and her family was foremost in her mind on a daily basis. She enjoyed gardening and her yard was continuously in bloom attracting multitudes of God's creatures and reflecting her appreciation of God's creation. Dianne also showed compassion for animals-taking in strays that had nowhere else to go that many times became long-time pets and indeed a part of the family. She had that ability to be touched by the simple beauty of many types of creatures and knew how to stop and look and feel the wonder of God's magnificent creation. She had a natural curiosity about things that reflected the child still alive in her heart. Dianne cherished her friends and enjoyed all things social that she could do with them, whether it was thrift store shopping, eating out or gathering at church with them. She always looked forward in her life, believing that all things work together for the good to those who love The Lord. She will be dearly missed by her family and all those who knew her true (spunky) spirit! We believe she truly had peace in her last months and days. Dianne was preceded in death by her father, Alaric Bonnette; her mother, Marie Bonnette Collins; her brother, Jean Bonnette; and her son, David Brodnax. She leaves behind to cherish her memories her loving husband of 45 years, James D. Morris; daughters, Sunny Rodriguez and Lorrie Brodnax; son, Timothy Morris; sister, Aline Fagan; brother, Christopher Bonnette; granddaughter, Jennifer Welling; grandson, Jacob Bradley; great granddaughter Emery Bradley; stepfather, Bill Collins; many nieces and nephews, including honorary granddaughter, Andrea Bonnette. Dianne also leaves behind numerous friends and a church family who were faithful in her last days, bringing peace and comfort through touch, song and prayer. Celebration of Life: a celebration of Dianne's eternal life will be on Saturday, January 10, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. at West Conroe Baptist Church in Conroe, Texas. West Conroe Baptist Church, 1855 Longmire Rd, Conroe, TX 77304 (936)760-1911 The family is indebted to all of Dianne's friends, extended family, caretakers and church family for their loving support. Those friendships, flowers, phone calls, prayers and personal visits kept her spirits aloft and the church family's support for us was immeasurable.
