Linda Morrison

July 28, 1940 — July 11, 2017

Linda Joyce (Lee) Morrison, age 76, of Waynesville, NC passed away on July 11, 2017. Family and friends rejoice that her spirit is now praising God in His Heaven. We look forward to meeting again. Linda was born on July 28, 1940 in Muscatine, Iowa to Donald and Grace Lee. She studied at Iowa State University from 1958 to 1961, where she met her husband, Dr. M. Edward Morrison. They were married June 3, 1961 and have three sons: Dr. Eric S. Morrison and wife Arika of Waynesville; Eric's daughters Emily, Elizabeth, and Wendy; Mr. Brian L. Morrison of St. Thomas, USVI; and Dr. Andrew E. Morrison and wife, Tasha, of Flagstaff, Arizona; daughters Brooke and Jennifer. Linda has a surviving sister, Mary Beth (Lee) Gleaves and husband, Karl Gleaves. Her brother, Gary L. Lee, passed away in 1999.

Linda loved hosting family and friends in her home. She was an excellent cook, which started when she was a junior in high school and won the State of Iowa Cherry Pie Baking contest in 1957. She competed in the national contest sponsored by General Mills Betty Crocker in Chicago.

Linda was active as a volunteer to start and organize small group Bible studies using Neighborhood Bible Study (now material. She and Linda Dorsett began this ministry in 1977, when the family was living in Friendwood (Houston) Texas. By the time she and her husband moved to Princeton, NJ in 1995, over 2000 men and women had been involved in these Bible studies in a home, church or office setting. She again promoted the Studies in Princeton, NJ through the YWCA and was instrumental in forming numerous small groups. When she moved to Waynesville, Kathy Mathis and Linda began encouraging women to be involved in small group home Bible studies. There were many persons positively impacted by these studies in Houston, Princeton and Waynesville. She was active in raising funds and placing Bibles with The Gideon's International for the last 25 years. She was always an active member of a local church where she lived and was a member of Lake Hills Church (SBC) in Waynesville.
