Joyce M. Morris, born March 24, 1940, passed away peacefully on September 2, 2021 at Greenwood Center, Warwick, RI. Born in Waterbury, Connecticut, she was a daughter of the late Jenny and Augie Marroto.
She and her husband, Charles Morris, enjoyed 50 years living and raising their children, Dawn and the late Darrell Morris, in Pilgrim Estates, Warwick, RI. She was an active member of the Scott School PTA, St. Catherine’s Church and Pilgrim Estates Bridge Group. Joyce volunteered/worked at Kent County Hospital for several years.
She is survived by her daughter, Dawn McNutt of Alabama, and a loving daughter-in-law, Annie Unger. Joyce was the proud grandma of Christopher, Elizabeth and Michael McNutt of Alabama and Abigail Morris of Coventry. Her youngest granddaughter, Abbey, was the “joy of her life” visiting often and playing bingo with her at Greenwood Center. Joyce’s Italian cooking, quick wit and laughter will be missed by her family, friends and all who were lucky enough to know her.
A Mass of Christian Burial was held on September 13th at St. Gregory the Great Church, Warwick, RI.
