TERRI LEE (DUNN) MORSE
Sebree, KY – Terri Lee Dunn Morse, 63, of Sebree, Kentucky, passed away on Thursday, August 20th, 2020 surrounded by her family and all of their love and support. After 5 years of battling ovarian cancer – with 4 remissions and the attitude of never succumbing to the disease – her body is finally at rest. Terri was the bravest, most determined ovarian cancer warrior. Even in the wake of the illness, she never stopped worrying about her loved ones – always doing for others whatever she could.
She was born in Madisonville, Kentucky on November 23, 1956 to John Clarence and Linda Lee Dunn. She graduated from Webster County High School and had numerous vocational diplomas. She worked the majority of her adult life in medical transcription and in other various roles in hospitals. Her favorite “job”, however, was being a Mom and Nana. Terri’s favorite pastimes were spending time with family, taking care of others, and watching her children and grandchildren compete in whichever activity they were involved in at the time. She could often be found watching a Criminal Minds marathon on her prized 65” TV or enjoying a good steak and pina colada.
Terri is preceded in death by her father, John Clarence Dunn. She is survived by her mother, Linda Dunn; her brothers, JR, Curnie, Tim, and Mike Dunn; sisters-in-law, Denise, Marsha, and Jackie, and Samantha Dunn; her children, Charles T. Morse III and Amanda L. Morse-Mitchell; son-in-law, Moxon Julian as well as her grandchildren, Olivia M. Mitchell, Oliver L. Mitchell, and Ophelia F. Julian.
A memorial service in honor of Terri will be held at Life Christian Center in Madisonville, Kentucky at 12 P.M. on Saturday, August 22, 2020. A private funeral service for immediate family will follow at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions be made to the Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance (OCRA) or the Linda E. White Hospice House in Evansville, Indiana for all of the love and care they gave to the family during Terri’s final days of life. Thank you to all who have sent their love, support and condolences during this difficult time.
“She has been assigned this mountain to show others it can be moved.”
Simple Cremation Evansville is entrusted with care.
