Pamela S. Morrison

July 20, 1953 ‒ April 30, 2017

Mount Vernon, Ohio

Pamela S. Morrison, age 63, of Mount Vernon passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, April 30, 2017 at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center with her loving family by her side.

She was born on July 20, 1953 in Wichita Falls, TX to the late Carey and Dixie (Wolf) Davis. Pamela was employed and retired from the Mount Vernon Developmental Center after many years of service. She was very well known as the queen of thrift shops and most of the time purchased items just to give them away. Anyone that entered Pamela’s life was treated like family. She was an avid Cleveland Browns, and Ohio State University football fan. But most of all, Pamela loved the time she spent with her family.

She is survived by her husband, of over 42 years, John W. Morrison; three sons, Joshua (Emily) Morrison, John G. (Lisa Otten) Morrison, James (Erin Peoples) Morrison; two grandchildren, Zoey and Alexis Morrison; two sisters, Cheryl Davis and Kim (Billie) Summers; her brother Greg (Deb) Davis; several nieces and nephews; numerous cousins; and her uncle Ron (Geraldine) Wolf.

In addition to her parents, Pamela was preceded in death by an infant daughter.

There will be no calling hours. The family will observe a private graveside service.

Pam was my supervisor for many years at MVDC, she truly touched everyone’s lives here (MVDC) weather it was the individuals excited to see her enter the living area or her contagious smile that even if you were having a bad day made it a little better. Rest in Peace Pam 🙁

  • When Pam came to MVDC to work, I never thought she would become my friend and then my family. Lil Morrison Conley introduced her to my youngest brother John, and the rest was history. We had some great times over the years before Ken & I moved to Florida. She was an important piece to or family Quilt and now it has another hole in it. She is now with the rest with more of those who loved her as those of living did. Ken & I love you John, Josh, Emily, Zoey, Alexis, John, Lisa , Jamie & Erin.

  • Adding my condolences to those already posted.
    Pam and I went to kindergarten and first grade at Dan Emmett elementary school in Mt.Vernon and became friends. Then my parents moved and I was at Utica elementary At recess one day in second grade there was my friend Pam. We were both happy to see each other and continued the friendship…Sadly, I lost track of her after highschool and regret not looking harder to find her. Was looking forward to seeing her at our last reunion. She was a gentle spirit, everyone’s friend.

  • John and family…I am so sorry to learn of Pam’s passing. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  • I was saddened to learn of Pamela’s passing. We worked together at MVDC. Our sincere condolences.

  • I have not seen Pam since school days. We were in several grades together at Utica. My sympathy to your family.

  • So sad to hear about Pam’s passing. We were classmates at Utica High School, she led the Pep Club and was a friend to all. After we graduated, we would meet at Utica Homecoming, then I moved out of state and we lost touch. Pam was a beautiful person – inside and out. My sympathy and prayer to family and friends.

  • Dearest John and family.
    Words can’t say how sorry I am for the loss of Pam. I have known Pam and both sides of her family though work. She was such a special person. She would do anything for any body with out them needing to ask. She was everyone’s friend. She always had a smile. I honestly never saw her mad. I never knew anyone who could crochet like Pam. I still have the two baby blankets she made for Kristi. She sure loved her boys. Bragged on them any chance she had. She will always be remembered for her kindness , and the love she shared to the clients at work. All those convertible rides she took the clients. RIP my friend. Love Carmen

  • I was so sad to hear of Pam’s passing. I don’t know how many evenings we spent at your house before we moved away from Mt Vernon. (probably too many!) I always adored her. I’m so sorry for your loss.
