We are heartbroken to announce the sudden passing of our mother and grandmother, Albertha Elizabeth Morris, who passed away peacefully on September 9th , 2021 at the Bay St. George Long Term Care Centre in Stephenville Crossing, NL.
Albertha was born on June 16th, 1933 to parents Clyde and Annabelle of Jeffrey's (predeceased). Albertha is survived and leaves to mourn with many precious memories, her beloved and devoted son, Wayne (Karen), grand-daughters Ophelia and Rebecca (Stefano), great-grandsons Matthew, Christopher, Luca, and Marco, brother David (Betty) of Cartyville, Roy (Marg) of Oshawa, sister Gwen (Wally) of Jeffrey's. She is predeceased by her loving husband Sidney, sisters Juanita, Diana, Sylvia and brothers Delwin, Kevin and Fred.
In her younger years, Albertha was dedicated to the Anglican Church and a proud member of the ACW. She loved to cook, bake, knit, sew and garden. She was happiest cooking a big meal on Sundays after Church and serving the family. She adored her only two grandchildren Rebecca and Ophelia, and her great-grandchildren, "the boys" Matthew, Christopher, Luca and Marco.
It was only a short time ago, this past Spring, she lost her busband and lifelong partner of 67 years, Sidney. It is often said that once one passes, the other loved one won't be far behind and this is a true case. Since April 5, a part of her heart has been missing since he passed. Now, they are together again, in heaven. Two souls at peace, watching over us here on earth. Together again for their 68th wedding Anniversary on September 23rd.
She will be deeply missed and forever loved in memory. A special thank you to Albertha's sister-in-law Maxine Meade for her many loving visits to long term care especially during Covid restriction times. Many thanks and appreciation to Bay St. George Long Term Care for their excellence in professionalism and personal care for Albertha. As expressions of sympathy, donations may be made to St. George's Anglican Church Memorial Fund.
A service will be held at St. George's Anglican church Wednesday, September 15th, 2021 at 2 pm. with Rev. Norman Cutler officiating. Prior to the service, a viewing will be held from 1 - 2 pm.. Burial to follow at St. George's Anglican cemetery.
