Dorothy Morris


Dorothy Morris, known to her friends as "Dot," died January 8, 2011, in the shootings outside a Tucson supermarket.

Her husband George, a former Marine and retired airline pilot, remains hospitalized after suffering two gunshot wounds. One of the couple's daughters said George Morris tried to protect his wife of 50 years by throwing her to the ground and trying to get on top of her to shield her.

The couple both grew up in Reno, Nev., and were high school sweethearts. They settled in Oro Valley around 1995. Dot was a retired homemaker and secretary.

Sue Blinman, who lives next door in a retirement community, said the couple traveled extensively and escaped Tucson's summer heat by heading up to their home in the eastern Arizona mountain community of Pinetop. "They were always good neighbors," Blinman said.
