Kathleen was born at Emmanuel Hospital in Portland of Scottish, Irish and German descent. She was proud of her father Raymond Edgar Lee who help build The Dalles Dam. Her mother May Bernice Lee was a committed mother and homemaker.
After graduating from Jefferson High, Kathy dedicated her life to being a mother and being an able Computer Operator raising children as a divorced mother and student. In later years she worked for Hanna Andersson Company.
Through her life she honored her Mennonite upbringing and later converted to Catholicism.
Milwaukie and later Sandy, Oregon were her homes.
She is survived by her husband Roland A. Morris, ex Raymond A Fisher, daughters Jennifer McInnes, Patricia Spencer & Desiree Allison. She has five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
She died after a 4 plus year struggle with cancer.
She was a warm, humorous, affectionate person and was deeply loved by all who met her. She was an award winning ceramicist and had a terrific singing voice.
Her family and especially her husband hope to be with her in the afterlife she so strongly believed in.
I dedicate my composition Country Heart to her as an eternal memorial to her life of love and inspiration. Kathy was unique and irreplaceable person.
