Obituary

On July 17, 2017 our dear, sweet mother’s prayers were answered and she was able to return to the loving arms of Father in Heaven and to a great Bulloch reunion. As she passed away peacefully, she was surrounded by her family. We are grateful that her fight with cancer was not prolonged. At 90 years old, she was preceded in death by just about everyone!…including her brothers McRae, Kern and DaVar Bulloch; her sister Vilda Ronnow; and seven half siblings.

Roene was born on November 21, 1926 to David Cattle and Caroline Nielson Bulloch in Cedar City, Utah. She married Haymer D. Morris in the Salt Lake Temple on April, 18, 1947. She leaves behind her four children: David (Lesley); Ro Ann (Arnold); Marilyn (Joe); Karen (J.B.); thirteen grandchildren and twenty-two great-grandchildren, and a great-great-grandchild on the way. She is also survived by a sister-in-law, Lillian Bulloch. Her family meant everything to her. She was fiercely loyal to them. She was our mountain of strength. Like the mountains around us that she loved so dearly, she stood steadfast. Her rock solid faith and belief in prayer served as an example to us all. We are grateful for her daily prayers in our behalf. We believe she had a direct line to God.

Mom’s sense of humor brought joy to family, neighbors, and friends. We are thankful for her sharp memory. The stories of her childhood on the mountain and her life growing up in Cedar City entertained and delighted many. She was the life of the party. Her sense of humor helped her to endure well the difficulties of life.

Mom taught us the value of service. She served faithfully in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She loved serving in the Primary, Young Women, Relief Society and in the family history name extraction program. She was happiest serving in quiet ways. Her greatest service was to her family. She was an extraordinary homemaker and cook. We are deeply appreciative of her example to us as a covenant keeping woman.

Please join us in remembering and honoring our beloved mother. Funeral services will be held on Monday, July 31, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. at the Cedar 2nd Ward LDS Chapel, 256 South 900 West. A viewing will be held on Sunday, July 30th at Southern Utah Mortuary from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. A viewing will be held before the funeral service on Monday, July 31st from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the Cedar 2nd Ward LDS Chapel. Interment will be in the Cedar City Cemetery under the direction of Southern Utah Mortuary. Online condolences can be made at www.sumortuary.com.

We wish to thank her ward and her neighbors for their love and care of mother. We also wish to thank Iron County Healthcare, especially Brenda Bentley and Lori Dennett for their loving care of Mom. Our thanks to Jannelle Chaffee who provided many hours of care. We are also grateful to Hospice Alliance for their help the last week of mother’s life. We are deeply grateful to them all.
