Obituary of Dee Ann Morris

Dee Ann was born December 15, 1958, to Les and Evelene Haynes, in Portland Oregon, the youngest of five children. Her first home was in Forest Grove, Oregon, until 1964, when they moved to Nespelem, WA where she started 1st grade, and they lived for 7 years. In Sept. 1972, her family moved to Plummer, ID where she attended 7-12th grade. In 1973 she met the love of her life, Kurt Morris.

They went together from then on and were married on September 21, 1978. After they were married, they lived in Tensed, Idaho, where their first child, Julie, was born. They moved to Morris Mountain in 1979, into two tents, where they had to prop boards under the downhill sides of the beds. Her grandpa John took pity on them, and with the help of other family members, built them “the shed” to live in, where they lived while they started building a log home. During her pregnancy and after their second child Jacob was born, Dee Ann peeled logs, and helped Kurt set them in place each night when he got home from work.

By June of 1981, the house was ready, and not a moment too soon: they got moved in one week before their third child, Jolene joined their family. Two years later, in 1983, Benjamin was born, and completed their family. She raised and homeschooled their four children in the log home, and lived there until 2008, when they moved to a trailer near Kurt’s sawmill, by Plummer, where they lived until they bought the place below the log house, and moved back to Morris Mountain in 2014.

Dee Ann enjoyed reading, sewing, playing and singing music, helping others, hiking in the woods, and spending time with her family. She was well known for her helping heart, quick wit and ready smile, and her beautiful singing voice. She lived for her husband, children, grand and great grand children, and loved them all very much. She was a firm believer in her Savior, Jesus Christ, and was active in the church her dad built, Chief’s Chapel (Later Plummer Assembly of God), from 1980 to present.

She passed away at home April 7, 2024, after a battle with cancer, and is survived by her husband Kurt Morris of Plummer, ID, her four children Julie Cook of Saint Maries, ID, Jacob Morris (Mariah) of Plummer, ID, Jolene Hill (Shayne) of Fernwood, ID and Benjamin Morris (Jody) of Plummer, ID
