Linda Kay Morrison, 77, lifelong Guymon resident passed away Monday morning, April 10, 2023 at the Heritage Community Manor in Guymon.
The daughter of Forrest and Marguerite Pieratt, she was born August 7, 1945 in Guymon, Oklahoma. She was raised in Guymon, where she attended school and graduated.
Kay was united in marriage to the love of her life, William “Bill” Morrison on June 20, 1965. Kay and Bill made Guymon their home. Kay worked in her family’s pharmacies most of her adult life. One of her jobs was being a “Soda Jerk”, she bragged about making the best vanilla coke in town. She had her own Daycare for a few years, where she took care of seven 2 year olds. She absolutely loved teaching them their alphabet and colors. Kay was blessed with her own two children, Michelle and Wade; four grandchildren: Kaelyn, Carli, Audrey and Ty; and nine great grandchildren: Gracie, Reece, Braelyn, Bekah, Ryatt, Ryver, Alaina, MJ and Amrey.
Her and Bill retired and became “Snowbirds” for 15 years, taking their camper to Mission, Texas and Arizona every winter. When they were back in Guymon, she enjoyed spending time with her great grandchildren, teaching them their alphabet and colors, and she enjoyed playing board games with them. They will miss ‘Grandma Kay’. She was an excellent cook and a devoted wife and mother, and above all, the best grandma ever. She was always present, part of our everyday lives in such an important way.
Grandma Kay – you impacted our lives in so many ways. You helped shape who we are. You shaped who my children, your grandchildren are. You influenced all of us so greatly – we will miss you every day of our lives.
