So sad to hear about Aunt Edna. I have many fond memories - being in Savannah and riding on that funny bike to visiting together at Family Reunions and here at my house! We will miss sweet Aunt Edna, Nancy

Edna & Ira were such a sweet couple and we were so glad that they chose to move to Springfield. We enjoyed spending time with them over the years. Edna was a great worker in our church. We loved her and she will be greatly missed.

Edna Phillips Morris, 94, died Monday, November 20, 2017.

Edna was born on September 28, 1923 in south-east Missouri. During World War II, Edna moved to Cocoa Beach, FL where she met her husband of 63 years, Ira Morris. After the war, Edna and Ira moved to Savannah, GA where they reared two children, Ira and Kathryn.

A devout Christian, Edna was a longtime member of Bull Street Baptist Church where she taught 2nd grade Sunday School for 25 years. Upon her husband’s retirement, they moved to Springfield, GA where she was very active in First Baptist Church of Springfield and had many duties, including treasurer for over 20 years, taught Sunday School and was a member of the Women’s Auxiliary.

Edna enjoyed gardening and was an active member of the Springfield Garden Club. A loving wife, mother, and grandmother, she is survived by her two children, Ira Morris, Jr. and his wife Katie and Kathryn Johnston and her husband Bill, four grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.

A private graveside service will be held.
