Obituary for Eddie Morrison

Come, ye disconsolate, where’er ye languish,
Come to the mercy seat, fervently kneel.
Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish;
Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.
Mrs. Eddie Mae Hamilton Morrison
Come, ye disconsolate, where’er ye languish,
Come to the mercy seat, fervently kneel.
Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish;
Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.
Mrs. Eddie Mae Hamilton Morrison, the second oldest child of the late Edward and Jessie Phifer Hamilton, was born in Iredell County on November 14, 1930. Eddie Mae departed this life, Sunday, July 16, 2017, at her home.

She was also a longtime member of Clark’s Chapel Baptist Church, where she served as an Usher and then President of the Ushers. While she lived her life on this earth, she enjoyed spending time with her family, going to the mountains and to the beach. She also loved cooking, gardening and tending to her flowers.
She was united in marriage to Guy Lynn Morrison for sixty-four years, who preceded her in death. In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by two sisters, Lucille Hamilton and Lillie Patterson, and two brothers, Edward Hamilton and William Hamilton.
She leaves to cherish the memory of her life, her six children, James Stanley Hamilton of Statesville, John Wayne (Queen) Morrison and Linda Mae (Ricky) Young, both of Catawba, Harry Randall Morrison of Hickory, Alice (Fredrick) Williams and Herbert Lee (Pam) Morrison, Sr., both of Statesville; eight grandchildren, Ricky Young, Jr., Nichole (Channing) Wilkes, Jessica Williams, Erica (Aaron) Ferguson, Kristy Morrison, Candice Williams, Herbert Lee Morrison, Jr., Brittany “Baby” Williams; five great grandchildren, Isley Young, Tessa WIlliams, Jasmine Ferguson, Maliyah Morrison, and Makaylah Coats; two sisters, Blanche Parker of Statesville, Juanita (Bishop Joe) Gray of Woodleaf; three sisters-in-law, Mildred Shelton of Statesville, Pearl Morrison of Baltimore, and Christine Morrison of Asheville; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, church family and dear friends.

She will never be forgotten. She was joyfully gracious to each one of us, Lord. I don't think we ever thanked her enough for all the wonderful things she did for us. Please, Lord, let her know that we are deeply grateful and will always remember her generosity and warm hospitality. Even more, we're so grateful for her years of prayers for us. She truly was a spiritual advocate for each one of us. And I believe she is still lifting us up in heaven. Thank you for this marvelous woman, and please help us through these sad days without her. We pray in Jesus' holy name. Amen.
Submitted with Love, by the family.
