Beatrice Morris

Obituary Condolences

November 1, 1920 - June 19, 2015 Beatrice Faibish Morris died on June 19, 2015 surrounded by family at the age of 94. Beatrice was born in Canada to Louis and Dorothy Faibish on November 1, 1920. She moved to Los Angeles at age 3. She married Sanford Morris on November 10, 1940, and theirs was an enduring love story with over 60 years of marriage. She and Sandy had two children, David and Trish, and they made their home in Pasadena. Grandma will be remembered for her fun personality; she was hardly "old and crabby" as she used to say. She had a dry sense of humor, enjoyed eating ribs at Pasadena's local diners, beating us all at Scrabble, and watching all of the Hollywood award shows. Her Yiddish phrases, exquisite crochet work, and good humor will be missed. She is survived by her daughter, Trish (Vaughn) Hilburn; daughter in law, Kathy Morris; grand-daughters Lynzee Grom, Dr. Susie Morris, and Sarah Morris; siblings Rosamund Felson and Dr. Bernard Faibish; and six beautiful great grand-children including her namesake Sadie Bea. She was preceded in death by husband, Sanford Morris, son Dr. David Morris, and great grand-daughter Violet Hope Grom. Special thanks are owed to Arcadia Methodist Hospital and to her loving care-giver Marjorie Adriano. A celebration of Beatrice's life will be held at Mount Sinai on June 25 at 11:30am followed by a reception at The Smokehouse in Burbank. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Beatrice's name to Children's Hospital, Los Angeles.
