Ida Mae Young Morris, age 94, of Fairlawn, departed this world to be with her heavenly father on October 10, 2018. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Ida enjoyed planting and tending her garden. The fruits of her labor were distributed in abundance to neighbors and family members. She was proud of the many flowers she grew in the yard, she so meticulously mowed for as long as she was able. She drew freehand drawings during the winter months. Recently she entertained her caregivers at The Cove during her nocturnal visits with them.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 57 years, Carlos E. Morris, her parents, Murphy and Beatrice Young, brothers, Rawley, Avis, and John Young, sisters Clara Isabel Brandt, and Loretta Kimmel; son-in-law, H. R. “Snapper” Hartwell.
