Detria “Dee” Morris of Verona, age 78, passed away peacefully on Wednesday August 3, 2022, at Boonespring Nursing Home. She was born on June 12, 1944, to the late Dudley and Pauline Rouse. Dee retired from Johnson Control as a fork truck operator and attended First Church of Christ in Florence where she participated in the church choir. She enjoyed spending her spare time watching old movies or the Golden Girls, doing puzzles- especially sudoku, and adding to her collection of ceramic cows and dogs. Most of all, Dee loved to watch her grandsons race their dirt cars. Dee was very involved with her family and always looking out for their best interests. She was a mother, grandmother, sister, and dear friend who will be missed beyond measure.
