September 26, 1935 - October 12, 2020
Grace “Gracie” Morris, 85, was given her wings and set free, to finally rest in peace on October 12, 2020. Grace was born on September 26, 1935 in Floyd County (Maytown), Kentucky. She moved to Columbus at a very early age and graduated from Central High School where she served on the homecoming court. Grace loved to travel with her family and friends. She was an active member of Eastview United Methodist Church for over 40 years. She participated in many clubs at the church that provided numerous services to the members and the community. She loved attending Bible Study, playing card games with her friends, and hanging out with the ladies of the Mary Martha Circle Group. Grace marched to the beat of her own drum, until sadly, she lost her fight to COPD. She has spread her wings and entered into the gates of paradise. Grace could spend hours feeding the birds, reading books, watching the Buckeyes and shopping. She loved the fall and the colors of the leaves on the trees. She loved lounging around in her soft cozy pajamas, housecoat, slippers, watching movies, and eating ice cream with her family and friends. Grace was preceded in death by her father, Robert Owsley and mother, Elizabeth Ratliff; sisters, Viola Miller, Hazel Sue Cassidy, Octavia Winters, and Lishia Stillwagon; and her brother, Billy Owsley. The passing of her daughter, Charlotte (John) Dianna Sue Lilly, was too much for her heart to bare. Grace is survived by her sister, Loretta Roush; brother, Dewey Owsley; son, Mark (Margarita) Morris; daughter, Harriet (Terry) Wooden; grandchildren, Cian Wooden, Ryan (Deanna) Lilly, Serene Morris, Alexa Morris and Jordan Wooden; 3 great grandchildren, Jayden Porter, Harper Lilly, and Hudson Lilly. Graced was loved dearly and will be missed by many nieces, nephews, and many other family members and friends.
