Patricia Jean Morris Obituary
September 21, 1937 - October 2, 2017 Patricia Jean "Mickey" Morris passed away in her Long Beach home on October 2, 2017. She was born September 21, 1937 in Philadelphia, PA, the third child of James and Eleanor McCaughan. After the death of her mother in 1945, the remaining family moved to California where she stayed mostly in the San Gabriel Valley. She spent 29 years in manufacturing, beginning as an accounts payable clerk and rising up through general accounting then cash accounting, to finish that career as traffic manager and purchasing agent. In 1994, she moved to San Diego and began a new career in apartment management, specializing in Independent Seniors, until 1999 when emphysema brought on early retirement. After moving to Long Beach in late 2004, she faced breast cancer twice and underwent the necessary mastectomies to regain her health. All her life, she loved to read and dance. She embraced many other interests, including animals, sports, board games, puzzles, movies, TV, and all things Irish. Among her favorite things in life was the sound of laughter. All through the long health issues she endured, she maintained her amazing spirit and zest for life. She will be dearly missed by her "kids", Dave and Charlotte (Charlie) Becker, and the friends she cherished. No doubt, her star still shines brightly above. Finally, she wanted to tell all her friends, "Have a great day. Bye!"
