Obituary: Clara Morris

Clara Lou Ferreira Morris passed away in Kingman Tuesday, May 1, 2012. She was born in Santa Ana, Calif., March 31, 1934.

After graduating from Compton College, she married her school sweetheart, George. They traveled for a few years before settling to raise their family in Buena Park, Calif.

Clara loved life. She was a strong, spirited, giving person, who always made time for friends and family. For her, family was defined as anyone who needed her. She possessed a warmth, compassion, and openness that drew people to her.

From a young woman to adulthood, her first love was sports. She played in many and excelled in most, with several awards and trophies. Later in her sports life she coached, spreading the love of sports to all.

She loved to travel, spending many days on the back of a motorcycle watching the world fly by, also seeing much of it in the RV she so loved.

She enjoyed many things in life, cooking, reading, puzzles, and of course, her love of animals.

She will be missed by all.
