Daphine Audre Morris

Longtime valley resident Daphine Audre Morris died at St. Mary’s Hospital in Grand Junction on Sept. 15. She was 87 years old.

Morris was born in Logan, Iowa, in 1915, raised in Sioux City, lowa, and was married in Casper, Wyo., to Carl Morris on March 17, 1935.

Before moving to Glenwood Springs, Morris and her husband lived for many years in Estes Park, Colo., and owned and operated a camera store, Western Camera.

She was preceded in death by her husband, who died 15 years ago. At that time Morris moved to Carbondale and became one of the original residents of the Carbondale Senior Housing.

Her greatest joys were her family, friends and the library. She enjoyed walking and could be seen walking all over town to and from her son’s bed-and-breakfast, the Ambiance Inn.

She is survived by her only son, Robert Morris, and his wife Norma of Carbondale. Survivors also include her granddaughters Audre Steinhoff and husband Dan of Santa Rosa, Calif., and Mardi Paris of Snowmass; and great-grandchildren Cody and Zac Paris of Snowmass and Devon and Morgan Sherlock of Santa Rosa, Calif.
