In Memory of




Life Story for Joan Marie Morrison

Joan Marie Morrison
September 20, 1937 - February 24, 2019
Cashmere, WA

Joan Morrison (King), 81, left her broken vessel on February 24, 2019, to join her father, mother, sister, and brother. Joan was born in Everett, MA, just north of Boston, in September 20, 1937, to Abner and Myrtle King. She attended Everett High School and then, shortly after she graduated, she met the love of her life, William “Bill” Morrison, while he was stationed in Bedford, MA. They hit it off from the beginning. If you do not believe in love at first sight, there's 61 years of proof for you.

Joan really enjoyed her family and spending family time, either camping or just at the house for holidays. A little-known fact about her was that was she was an excellent roller-skater when she was younger, even participating in “dances on skates.”

She had succumbed to severe memory loss these past few years, struggling to retain in her mind those who remained close to her, by sometimes asking their names and then repeating back to herself to help her remember. Joan had 27 years in banking, and throughout her career, she not only knew her customers, but could tell you multiple relations to each one and most times knew all of their children and siblings by name. She was truly an amazing people person, and this may have been how she managed to retire out of the administration office, leaving many friends who stayed in contact well after she left.

Joan is survived by her husband, William “Bill” Morrison; sons: Mark Morrison and Scott (Melody) Morrison; six grandchildren: Nathan Morrison, Danielle Morrison, Connor Warman, Jonathan Morrison, Nick Morrison, Eryn Warman; and one great-grandchild, Easton Warman.

Joan was a wife, mom, and grandmother to us and she will be missed dearly. Love you, mom.
