Karen Michelle Browning Morris

Karen Michelle Browning Morris, 56 years old passed away May 11th in her home surrounded by her family. She was born in El Paso, Texas but lived most of her life in Savannah. She was preceded in death by her beloved mother Sharon Ann Gooch Keith.

She is survived by her husband James Morris, children Troy “Austin” Morris, Hunter Morris, and Summer Morris. She also left her father Ernest Lee Browning Jr (Brenda), brother Daniel Browning (Laurie), stepbrothers Brad Willis (Allison), Danny Willis (Michelle) stepson Branden “Cody” Morris and one granddaughter Jayden Morris. There are also many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends who will miss her terribly.

Karen loved dance and gymnastics and the love of music continued all through her life. She graduated from Savannah High School in 1982. She loved the sun, the beach and hearing the laugher of her children as they grew. She lived to serve her family. She was devoted to her favorite fur baby Marley. She is a bright light that has gone from this earth far too soon and will be a hole in the hearts of those she left. She loved Jesus and is with Him now.

The family will have a private memorial service for family and close friends.

In lieu of flowers the family asks that contributions be made to either the Humane Society of Savannah or The American Cancer Society.
