Alice Jean Morris

Alice Jean Morris died peacefully in Enumclaw on June 29, 2016. She was 95.

She was born July 27, 1920, in Enumclaw (Osceola) to the late Harold and Lena (Koidahl) Hanson. She spent her youth in Enumclaw and graduated from Enumclaw High School in 1938. During World War II she lived and worked in Seattle including time with the Army Corp of Engineers. She married Jack Morris in 1943 and travelled with him to Texas and Louisiana before he was deployed to Europe as a B-17 pilot. After the war the couple lived and raised three sons at their home at Four Corners near Maple Valley. In 1961 they moved to a home on Lake Sawyer where she spent the next 50 years of her life. During that time the couple toured the world and spent most winters at their condominium on Maui. She most enjoyed time spent at their Mats Mats Bay farm on the Olympic Peninsula. She was an avid golfer when she was younger and a lifelong gardener who loved her pet donkeys Daisy and Rosie.

In 2012 she moved into the Living Court Assisted Living Community and eventually into Expressions at Enumclaw.

She is survived by sons David (Nancy), Tim (Anna) and Bob (Jill); seven grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by brother Don Hanson, husband Jack, grandson Brian and granddaughter Sienna.

Remembrances can be made to the Black Diamond Historical Society, P.O. Box 232, Black Diamond, 98010.
