Kathryn (Katie Morgan) Morris

1989 - 2022

Kathryn (Katie Morgan) Morris departed this world in the early morning of August 18, 2022 at her home in Advance, NC. Born November 4, 1989 to John Morgan and Debbie Gleason in Los Angeles, CA, Katie spent most of her childhood in Richmond, VA before studying to be a nurse at University of Virginia (UVA). She practiced as an Oncology nurse at the University of Virginia and Novant in Charlotte, NC before moving to Wake Forest Baptist Health.

She is preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Thomas and Verlie Morgan, and her maternal grandparents, Laurence and Joan Gleason.

She is survived by her husband, Seth Morris; her twin sons, Stanton and Louis; her parents John Morgan (Kay) and Debbie Gleason; her sisters Ashley Morgan (Adam), and Kerry Morgan (Jon); and a wild and wonderful web of extended family and friends.

In her final days, Katie remained tenacious, courageous, and found humor even in the darkest of times. To know her was to love her; the hole she leaves in this world cannot be filled.

A memorial service will be held at the Morris Residence in Advance, NC on October 15, 2022.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the National Brain Tumor Society or the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

    Katie was the sweetest, kindest, most generous person I have ever known. Everyone loved her, and she brought joy to everyone she met. I will always love and remember you, Katie.

    I think it goes without saying for anyone who knew Katie that she was the kindest, best person to call a friend. It should still be said because we have been lucky to have known her. We are fortunate to have spent so many influential moments of life with her and the rest of the CHT family. From diabetes jokes to late nights on the cabin porches. The world is darker without her. We do and will continue to cherish our memories with her.
    Love, Harry and Alisha

    I have been weeping all week. Katie had a smile unlike all others. May she be smiling from the heavens over Louis and Stanton.

    It only took one convo and meeting in person to see Katie’s beautiful smile and to know she truly was a genuine loving kind human. My heart and all my love goes out to Seth, their boys, both families, and all Katie’s friends ❤️ The best words I know are found in this quote,
    “When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.” -Khalil Gibran

    Rest In Peace Katie ❤️

    Katie’s light is gone way too soon. I had the privilege of meeting her through Chi Omega at UVA and was instantly won over by her infectious smile and intelligence. I am so, so sorry.

    Katie, Katie, Katie…. you are missed more than words can say. I am so thankful for our last picnic at the winery and I am beyond blessed to have known you… Little things will happen, in the days since you have passed, and I cannot help but think maybe you are still here in spirit and messing with me (or us). I hope so because it makes me smile. I am so thankful that you left a part of yourself with us in those boys and I pray that Seth and your family are ok. Your positivity, spirit and infectious smile are treasured gifts that I am grateful for and hope that you can see how much you filled our lives with your love. xoxo my friend.

    Kind, calm, positive, humble, great coworker. All this despite knowing what she was up against and whom she would leave behind. Truly heroic. R.I.P., Katie. And thank you for all the generous help you gave me.

    I recently had a conversation with one of my clients who was rather young type 1 diabetic and she asked me how she would manage her carb intake. The first thought that went through my head was Katie. I worked with her in the summer of 2009 and again in 2011. She taught me so much about not only living with diabetes but also taught me that how much you can be who you are as individual. Whenever I interacted with people who had the same condition as Katie, I always thought of her and couldn’t thank her enough.

    I am fortunate that I got to know her and she surely will be missed.

    Love,
    Abe
