Barbara Lee Morrison

March 26, 1931 ~ March 19, 2022 (age 90)

Obituary

Barbara was born on March 26, 1931 in Ft Worth, TX.  She claimed that as her hometown her entire life. 

Barbara was raised in a Godly home, with a mother and father who were pillars in their church.  She was Salutatorian of her high school class (her GPA was higher than the Valedictorian, but she was a female!).  She chose to attend Southwestern Assemblies of God College, earning an AA degree.  And there she met Jim Morrison, the love of her life for the next 66 years. 

Before she married, she travelled a 5-state area with an evangelist, Mildred Wicks, and played the organ every night for their meetings. During this time, she and Jim shared love letters, dreaming of a life together where they would serve God, with their whole hearts. 

And that is just what they did. They married in June 1951, and had three children over the next 6 years. Family was the primary focus of Barbara’s life. Everything she did revolved around the family. Yes, she played the organ at church, she taught classes during the week at church, she decorated the church, she planned celebrations at the church, and at one point, she was even responsible for cleaning the church (although by that time, she had a crew who served alongside her). Serving God was number ONE.  Jim was number TWO.  And family was always a part of number 1 and 2! 

Many who knew her would describe her as a lovely lady, an elegant woman, and a dedicated servant in the Kingdom of God. She would describe herself as helpmate, mother, and Mimi.  Her life revolved around family and church. And truly, she had the fruit to prove it. 

When she arrived at the “Mimi” time of life, she had seven grandsons and one granddaughter. One of her favorite things to say was, “We are raising Godly men.”  Of course, she also made sure her granddaughter was Godly, as well!  She was always there—births, birthdays, celebrations, vacations, ballgames, graduations…always cheering her family on. 

Then came 29 great-grandchildren!  What a tribe!  

She handled adversity with faith…disappointment with hope…heartache with strength.  And EVERYTHING with PRAYER! 

She left her earthly body behind on March 19, 2022.  She died of natural causes…naturally.  She took her last breath on earth and her first breath in heaven as the song was sung:

“Turn your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in His Wonderful face.  And the things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the Light of His Glory and Grace.”  

And that is exactly how she lived and died—fully committed to a life with Jesus!
