February 10, 2018
|Algia L. Morris, 70, of South Canaan, died Saturday night unexpectedly at home.
Born Nov. 9, 1947 in Brooklyn, N.Y., she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Algie Avitable. Algia was a graduate of Shamokin High School and was employed by Dun & Bradstreet and Emiliano Transport for many years. She attended Waymart United Methodist Church.
Algia was a loving, kindhearted woman who always put others before herself. She was a loving mother and her children were her greatest accomplishment and biggest pride. She loved spending time with her son Danny enjoying days at the beach, concerts and dinners in Philadelphia. Her favorite vacation memory was with her son in Italy. She lovingly cared for her cats and her dogs throughout the years and often was found feeding a sick kitten back to health in her work lunch bag. She loved cooking and baking, and was always concerned about making food for family and friends. She enjoyed spending time with her family at the lake, making her flag cake for the 4th of July, and loved seeing her nieces and nephews. Above all, Algia was a caring woman who always put others needs before her own. She will always be remembered for her huge heart, great humor and infectious laugh. She will be missed by all who loved her. She now joins the angels, and most of all, her children who she missed dearly.
Surviving are her son, Daniel J. Morris Jr., Philadelphia; her sister-in-law, Helen Spoonhower, Spring Brook Twp.; nieces, Danielle Alba, Noel Boehm and Heather Bisignani; and her former spouse, Daniel J. Morris Sr.
