Molly Grace Morris (2-20-22) service 2-25-22

Molly Grace Morris, of Athens, Alabama, was born in Selmer, to Ben and Tami Morris on June 19, 2003. The baby of five, she was spoiled rotten every minute of her life.
She loved being at home with her family, Michael Bublé, going to the Duck Pond, being told how pretty she was and her Pooh Bear. Though unable to speak due to Cerebral Palsy, through her joyful disposition she inspired many. Molly was so full of joy and light that when she would smile or start to laugh her body did all it could to contain it. But thankfully for us, her body couldn’t keep it all inside and, though it looked like her face was about to break, some of that joy and light spilled out and made our lives a little brighter just by being in her presence.
Molly Grace was loved deeply and will be missed terribly by her parents, Ben and Tami Morris; her sisters, Shelby Morris of Athens, Cassie (Ty) Marshall of Indiana and Whitney Morris of South Carolina; brother, Matt Morris of New York; nieces, Parker and Bailey Marshall of Indiana; grandparents, Jim and Ann Feller of Athens; aunts and uncles, Scott and Wendy Bobo (also Godparents), David and Mysti Fleming, all of Athens, and Eddie and Lori Morris of Kentucky; cousins, Rachel and Olivia Bobo, Savannah (Roger) Shilling, Katherine and John Fleming, all of Athens, and Chelsea (Chase) Riggins and Rhett Futrell of Kentucky.
She will also be missed by her Nonna, Rhonda Lackey; her BFFs, Loren, Quinn and Ivy Jayne Axline; her sweet friends, Sutton Lackey and Lacy Tims and her favorite boy, Logan Kerr.
Molly Grace was joyfully welcomed into Heaven on Sunday, Feb. 20, by her Grandpa Bobo (John Paul), Granny and Paw (Glenda and Mackey Morris); and a host of other family members.
