Marlene (Casey) Morris

July 29, 1931 — August 5, 2023

Amarillo, Texas

Marlene Morris, age 92, of Amarillo, entered the gates of heaven on August 5, 2023, in Amarillo.

Marlene was born July 29, 1931, in Dodge City, Kansas, to her parents, Albert Eugene and Dora Shirley Hurt Casey.  She attended Amarillo High School before moving to California, where she graduated high school and attended college.

On August 21, 1953, Marlene married the love of her life, Gene “Smokey” Morris.  The couple was blessed with four children Mike, Sam, Susan, and Abby.  Marlene devoted her life to serving her family, the church, and the community.  She was involved in the Republican Women’s Organization, the Red Hat Society, the Borger Belles and served in many capacities at her church.

Marlene had an extensive knowledge and appreciation of history.  Being a child of the Great Depression and living through WWII, she took an interest in the times that shaped her life. She was an accomplished artist, blessing family and friends with her exquisite oil paintings.

She was preceded in death by a son, Richard Michael Morris, and her husband, Gene “Smokey” Morris.

Marlene is survived by her two daughters, Susan Denton and her husband David of Wimberley and Abby Johnston and her husband Cliff of Kyle; her son, Sam Morris of Amarillo; seven grandchildren, John Mark Davis and his wife Mallory, Michelle Myers and her husband Jason, Matthew Davis and his wife Madison, Michael Davis, Daniel Davis and his wife Anna, Lauren Hogan and Jacky Morris; and five great-grandchildren, Kamron Davis, Khloe Davis, Olivia Davis, Luna Davis, and Baby Myers, on the way.
