Audrey M Morris

June 15th, 1951 to November 20th, 2023

Audrey Mae Morris, 72, of Port Huron, went home to be with the Lord Monday, November 20, 2023.

She was born in Port Huron, Michigan to Jethro Harris and Alma Jewel (Robinson) Harris on June 15, 1951. She and her beloved brother, Jethro Jr. (later known as Dr. Saleef Kafajouffe) were raised by close family members after her mother passed at the age of 21. As their father struggled to raise them, Audrey and Jethro often stayed with their uncle and aunt, Randolph and Malinda Jackson; their Uncle Willie and Aunt Gertrude Alexander; and later their paternal grandmother, Zettie Jackson, and her husband, Clarence Tyner.

Audrey lived with her grandmother for most of her childhood and it was there that she became acquainted with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Grandma Zettie required her to be in church anytime the church doors were open, every Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. Homework that needed to be done was completed in church on the third pew from the back. This time in her life would instill values in Audrey that would be with her for the rest of her life.

High school was a difficult time in Audrey Morris’ life. She was an A student who performed very well in her studies and her favorite subjects were math and English. Unfortunately, her time there wouldn’t last long as she became pregnant with her first child in only the 9th grade. At the time, her school wouldn’t let pregnant girls attend but she wouldn’t give up without a fight. With a little help Audrey went to the school board to plead her case against this unfair practice but the board refused to bend. On April 12, 1966, she gave birth to her first son, D’wan LaMont Lindsay. Despite never getting her high school diploma, Audrey obtained a master’s degree in social work, a bachelor’s in management and organizational development, an Associates as a Legal Secretary, and became a licensed Master of Social Work.

As an adult, Audrey was a part of a group that frequently got together to play cards. That’s where she met Phillip D. Morris, a friend of her favorite uncle, Willie Jackson (Grandma Zettie’s Brother). He was kind, hardworking, and caring and loved Audrey’s children from her previous marriage as his own. They reciprocated this love by calling him dad. Phillip would take the family on trips to Cedar Point, the Zoo, and Sea World - just to name a few. Phillip and Audrey wed on November 13, 1982.

After spending some time trying to figure out life her own way, Audrey returned to the foundation laid by her grandmother Zettie. Audrey spent decades as a long-time and faithful member of Zion Cathedral of Praise. She served faithfully in administration, as a licensed and ordained minister of the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World, Inc., and most recently as the assistant pastor of Zion. She also was a professional counselor, licensed masters-level social worker and certified addiction counselor. Earlier in her career, she was employed with AT&T.

Audrey loved her family and her church. She enjoyed traveling with loved ones, attending church functions and events, and shopping. She loved going all out for Christmas, just as her grandmother did for her and her brother. She passed this tradition down to all her children and grandchildren. Audrey had a passion for doing all she could to help others.

She leaves to carry on her legacy of love, strength, and determination her husband, Phillip Douglas Morris, Sr.; her daughter, Danielle L. Lindsay; her son, Phillip “Tiger” (Heather Arnold) Morris, Jr.; her stepdaughter whom she loved as a daughter, Zina Morris; her brother, Jeffery (Sonia Harvey) Mack; her sister, Jeanine Zettie Harris; sister-in-law, Curlada Harris; grandchildren: Anthony (Kenya) Miller, Devontae (Amber) Miller, Christopher Johnson Jr., Bridgette Johnson, Ti-Gér and Amaré Morris, LaQuita Edwards, Anthony Moncrief Jr. and Antonia (Dylan) Thompson; 11 greatgrandchildren; her pastor, friend, and business partner, Suff. Bishop Kimberly (Tony) Brown; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and special friends.

Audrey was proceeded in death by her parents, Jethro and Alma Harris; two brothers, Dr. Saleef Kafajouffe and John Otis Harris; her sister, Levonia Harris Clark; two daughters, Cheri’ L. Lindsay and Bridgette L. Lindsay; her son, Dwan LaMont Lindsay; her granddaughter, Shay-Lynn Burrell; and her great-granddaughter, Zai’Ahna D. Reddic.
