Lynne Mae Morris

(72 years old)

August 8, 1939 -
April 4, 2012

It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our mother, sister, friend and companion. The angels came to take her home to the Lord on Wednesday, April 4, 2012, following a period of declining strength and health due to her cancer. Lynne was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the daughter of the late Leroy and Helen Johnston, who had lived in Arlington, Massachusetts. She moved to California in 1958. She met and married her husband Bill Morris and settled in Gardena, California in 1960. She was preceded in death by one son, Robert, who died at an early age and by her husband of 38 years William F. Morris. They had six children: William Jr. (Carolyn) of Gardena, CA, Patricia (Dan) of Ontario, CA, Rick (Marsha) of Gardena, CA, Connie of San Diego, CA, Janette (Roger) of La Puente, CA and Mark (Christine) of Chino, CA. She is also survived by her brother, Leroy Jr. of Lancaster, PA and sister, Cindy Johnston of Arlington, MA. She will be remembered and loved by three great-grandchildren, eleven grandchildren, nieces and nephews and her close companion, Bob Larson. She was an avid member of her local Baptist church (Calvary Baptist Tabernacle). She loved to travel, take cruises, go shopping, good food and socializing. She was a free spirit; her smile could light up a room. She had been active in her local bowling league, loved to dance and had been an officer of the Forrester's for many years prior to her cancer. Her family would like to take this opportunity to thank her close friends during this illness, Christian friends, brothers and sisters and indeed the most meaningful gift of life. Viewing will be held at Green Hills Mortuary in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 10, 2012. Services will be held on Wednesday, April 11, 2012, 12:30 p.m. at Calvary Baptist Tabernacle, 18701 S. Denker, Gardena, CA. Interment will follow in Green Hills Memorial Park.
