Kimberly Jo Morris, 62
February 4, 1959 - May 27, 2021
Kimberly Jo Morris, 62, passed away on May 27, 2021 after a life long struggle with epilepsy. Kim was born on February 4, 1959 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the beloved daughter of Wade Roscoe and Ruth Marie (Spinn) Morris. After spending many years in Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, she moved with her family to Augusta, Georgia, and then to Manheim in her later years to enjoy the Lancaster County weather.
Kim is survived by her ever-loving father, Wade of Manheim, sisters Patricia Ruth (Robert) Willis of Modoc, South Carolina, Pamela Jean (Mark) Heller of Manheim, and brother Jeffrey Scott (Teresa) Morris of McKinney, Texas.
Kim was a devoted daughter and sister and enjoyed time with her family above all else. Her regular card games with family members, including with her many nieces and nephews, were amongst her most cherished times. Kim always remembered the birthdays of her family and closest friends and faithfully acknowledged them each and every year. Holidays were special times for Kim, and she cherished the chance to display her always-growing collection of Christmas items. However, there was no day more exciting for her and her family than her own birthday when she would receive notes, cards and well-wishes from countless friends.
Kim loved animals and flowers. Her favorite dog and longtime companion Daisy will forever hold a special place in Kim’s heart. Among Kim’s favorite flowers were bleeding hearts, amaryllis, tulips and clematis and she would care for her flowers carefully and note their progress without fail each spring and summer day. She admired the beauty and sensitivity of horses her entire life and never missed watching an important horse race on television.
Kim was an inspiration to everyone who met her. She showed true joy in the simplest things in life, like trying the latest flavor of M&M’s or having pizza for dinner. Her loving acceptance of others, her gratitude and selflessness, and her love for her mother and father were reminders to everyone of what should be important for all of us.
Funeral service will be private. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Kim’s honor to either Salem United Methodist Church, 140 North Penn Street, Manheim, PA 17545 where Kim was a faithful member, or to the Pennsylvania SPCA at PSPCA.org.

Sorry I got this news late, Kim, but it was always good to be with you when I would bring you over to my house and we would go get ice cream. And then we would go see the horses. You were always a calming person to me and that was a good thing during my times of stress. God bless you Kim and I know you’re in heaven with the angels.

Kim had such a lovely smile and there was no doubt for her concern for animals. It was a joy to know her.

I join the pain that overwhelms the whole family and with a broken heart I say to God to my dear Kim. She was the person with the noblest heart I have ever met and I pray to God to meet again in eternity.
