Obituary for D. Lynne Morris (Bigelow)
D. Lynne Morris, age 68, passed away of natural causes at Shore Medical Center surrounded by loving family members on Tuesday, January 16, 2018. From the day she was born on March 16, 1949, she filled everyone around her with love, faith, and laughter. Born to William and Dorothy (Simmons) Bigelow in Paterson, the family shortly moved to Atlantic City where Lynne was raised, until marrying her husband Robert G. Morris Sr. on Saturday, September 21, 1968. Lynne worked as a cashier for Shoprite for 38 years in which time she touched the hearts of everyone she met. With such a large family, Lynne was no stranger to opening her home and her heart and exuding love through everything she did. When her home is not filled with friends and family, it remains overflowing with fun-filled memories of her life. A member of Zion United Methodist Church, Lynne was very faithful to the Lord and cared for all of God’s creations, including family, friends, pets, and plants.
Lynne is survived by her husband, Robert; a pet Meah; a sister Jacqui (Bigelow) Dean (Kirby); two children Melissa (Morris) Guthrie (Anthony), and Robert G. Morris Jr.; five grandchildren; and many more cousins, nieces, nephews, and in-laws.
Services will be held on Saturday, January 20, 2018 with a viewing from 2-4 PM and services at 4 PM at Boakes Funeral Home, 6050 Main St, Mays Landing, with Rev. David Schumacher officiating. Wishing you strength for today and hope for tomorrow.
