Obituary for Jane Ellen Hubble Morris

Jane Ellen Hubble Morris of Dublin, VA died at her home on April 22, 2022 after a lengthy illness. She was 83 years old. She is survived by her devoted husband of nearly 65 years, Douglas F. Morris, and her four children and their families: Pam and Lee Chitwood of Pulaski, VA and their children Rachel, Ed, Maddy and Riley; Sandi Douglas of Richmond, VA and her children Jordan, Jake and Reece; Patrick and Amy Morris of Pulaski, VA and their daughter Raleigh; and Sharyn Morris and Dan Dagle of Roslindale, MA.

Jane was born in Montgomery County, VA and was pre-deceased by her parents, Reece Patrick Hubble and Frances Virginia McBride Hubble. She was a graduate of the Dublin High School Class of 1955. She married Douglas Morris in 1957 and was a homemaker until all of her children were school-aged and she went to nursing school at New River Community College. A natural caregiver, she thrived in her career. She worked for many years at the Radford University Health Center. She had a special fondness for the elderly and also worked at Wheatland Hills and Highland Manor nursing homes and as a home health nurse.

Jane exemplified kindness, compassion and contentment guided by her generous and grateful heart. She formed life-long friendships and enjoyed many hobbies including gardening, cooking, and singing in the church choir. After her retirement, she volunteered for several years with the Connections Reading Mentoring Program at the Pulaski Elementary School. Her family will remember the painstaking care she took with every birthday and holiday; she led the singing at any celebration, and could play the piano by ear.
