Obituary for Rebecca Andrews Morris

Rebecca Andrews Morris, 71, transitioned from her earthly home to her heavenly home on May 17, 2020 after her brave battle with Alzheimer’s disease.
Rebecca was born on December 2, 1948, in Newberry to the late Dave and Bonnie Wilson Andrews. Her maternal grandparents were the late John C. Wilson and Annie Mae Smith Wilson Shealy of Newberry. The late Jewel Wilson Kinard was her maternal aunt.
At the time of her death, Rebecca was living in Marietta, Georgia. She attended Campbell High School, the University of West Georgia and John Robert Powers Modeling School.
She modeled for the iconic Rich’s Department Store in Atlanta and hosted their morning fashion spot on WSB-TV. She was the fashion coordinator for Sear’s Cumberland and developed their Winnie-the-Pooh Fashion Program.
Her passion in life was her faith and being a supportive and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and sister. She was an avid encourager to all she knew.
Becky, as she was better known, is survived by her husband of 47 years, J. Richard Morris; children, Jonathan Morris and Jessica Thompson; grandchildren, Carley Morris, Layla Morris, Colton Thompson and Parker Thompson; a sister, Linda Andrews Bayne Duffey; two nieces; and a special cousin, Anne Caughman.
She is also survived by her maternal relatives from the Wilson and Smith families who currently reside in Newberry County; and by paternal relatives in the McBee, Bethune and Hartsville areas.
During these unprecedented times no service will be held.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Alzheimer’s Association, 41 Perimeter Center E #550, Atlanta, George 30346, or at
