Obituary for Vera Morris

Durham: Vera Morris, 90, passed away on Thursday, May 30, 2019 at Hock Family Pavilion in Durham. She was born in Montgomery County, NC to the late Carl Whiteside and Elgie Routh Whiteside. In addition to her parents, she was also predeceased by her husband, Whittie Morris; sister, Peggy Parson; brother, Carl Whiteside and wife Betty; nephew Ricky Parson and great grandchild, Camryn Davis.

Ms. Morris was a graduate of Central High School in Charlotte and was a member of Ridgecrest Baptist Church in Durham. She was well known to many as Mrs. Ivins and from her ownership and operation of “The Golden Burro” at the Daniel Boone Complex in Hillsborough, NC. She retired from Durham Public School as a Supervisor of School Food Service and later from the Division of Motor Vehicles in Durham. She made many wonderful and life long friends through her employment. She was someone who continued her relationships for many, many years.

Mrs. Morris was a strong, devoted, loving, giving, beloved mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She loved sports, the beaches of North Carolina, country music, and listening to the harmonies of her children sing. She was not just a mother to her five children, she was a mother to many other children in her community. Many teenagers were taken into her home while they were finishing high school or just needing a temporary safe harbor. Her home was the “place where everyone” went for fun and love.

Ms. Morris is survived by her children, Resa Strunge (Edward), Donna Moore (Michael), Donald John Ivins, Jr. (Lori), Carl Edward Ivins, Lucinda “Cindy” Davis (Michael); nieces, Vera Darlene Smith, Sandy Parson; nephew, Carl Parson; grandchildren, Alexandria Moore Gates (David), Phillip Stan Ivins, Christopher North Davis (Courtney), Jacob Hayden Ivins, Michael Allen Moore, Carly Camden Davis; and great-grandchildren, Cole Davis, Claire Davis, Justin Gates, Savannah Gates.

A memorial service will be held 7:00 pm on Thursday, June 13, 2019 at Ridgecrest Baptist Church with Dr. Marc Francis officiating. Visitation prior to the service at 6:00 in the Fellowship Hall.

The family is being assisted by Clements Funeral & Cremation Services, Inc. in Durham. Online condolences may be sent to www.clementsfuneralservice.com.
