Quechee, Vt. — Jenny Rebecca Morris, 34, of Quechee, died Monday, June 19, 2017. Jenny died in her childhood home after a nine-month battle with cancer. She fought cancer with determination, hope and remarkable grace.

Jenny was born on Memorial Day May 30, 1983, at Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital in Hanover, N.H. to Cynthia (Eastman) and Michael Morris. She graduated from Hartford High School in 2001, attended UVM in Burlington, Vt. and then transferred to Manatee Community College, Bradenton, Fla. Jenny completed her Bachelors of Science in Nursing at Chamberlain College of Nursing, Downers Grove, Ill. Jenny was an outstanding and well-respected nurse having been employed at DHMC, Lebanon, N.H., Boca Raton Regional Hospital, Hospice-By-The-Sea and Advanced Medical Therapeutics, Boca Raton, Fla.

Jenny was a kind, loving person who put the needs of others before her own. She was thoughtful, loved gift-giving and holidays, especially Christmas. She was a true “foodie” and enjoyed planning a gathering with fun games to be enjoyed by all. She was an animal lover and rescued more than her fair share.

Jenny had a talent for writing, creating poems for loved ones. She used her writing talent as a form of therapy during her illness. Music and dancing soothed her soul. There was always dancing in Jenny’s life and she inspired us all to find the joy of dance in our lives. She could light up a room with her smile and positive energy. She was our sunshine and radiated warmth and love to all of us. Jenny will always be in our hearts and in every rainbow we see.

She is survived by her parents Cynthia and Michael Morris; her brother Michael Morris Jr., his fiancé Brittany Weaver; nephew Sean Lucas and niece Paisley Ann also of Quechee; aunts and uncles: Lois Hall, Terry (Tom) Kirrane, Harold Eastman, John (Leann) Eastman, Bobbie (Paul) Corti, Bob Ferlazo; and numerous cousins.

Jenny was predeceased by her maternal grandparents Harold and Arlene Eastman and paternal grandparents Robert and Dariel Morris, uncle Blake Morris, aunt Elizabeth Ferlazo, cousin James Barrett and most recently her uncle David Eastman.

A Celebration of Jenny’s Life will be held on Saturday, Sept. 2, 2017, at the Quechee Club in Quechee from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. A buffet of Hors d’euvres and light refreshments will be available.
