She was a quiet yet precocious child who spoke her truth even from a young age. Abbye graduated from North Little Rock HS in 1993. From there she went on to Lee’s Cosmetology school where she launched her passion for beauty in healthy hair. This spurred a lifelong enthusiasm in mastering the field and then instructing others to become their own masters. She was phenomenal in what she accomplished professionally.
In her personal life, she was the first-born grandchild to Tina Caldwell. As such she led the cousins with grace and confidence. She inspired respect from the entire family of cousins, uncles, aunts, and grandparent alike because of her love of the Lord, Jesus Christ. She gathered best friends and BFFLS with her huge smile and zeal for life as Sharon Rotruck, Heather Land, and Karen Clay could provide witness. She was well educated in the Bible and verse, and loved to spread this knowledge to any and every one in her joyful manner. She was the pride of her mother, Martina, and the protector and best friend to her little sister, Ife.
Abbye Morris accomplished much in her life, but her central happiness was the love she found in her husband, Ed Morris, whom she met at Family Life Bible Church which became her 2nd family as well as church home. After God, being a loving wife to Ed and mother to their six dogs was her crowning glory and joy. Their time was cut short, but their love shone the brightest for all to see. Abbye’s dogs were her children: Mimi, Misu, Zippo, Brittany, Joe, and Sasha will always be well loved and taken care of. It would have offended her not to mention them as a major aspect of her life.
Abbye’s time on Earth is cut too short, she will be missed beyond measure. We rejoice in her placement in God’s eternal presence. She was preceded in death by her father, Denis Bailey; and survived by her husband, Ed Morris; mother, Martina Love; grandmother, Tina Caldwell; sister, Ife Caldwell; niece, Cecilia Obregon; and a slew of cousins, aunts, uncles, church family, and friends.
Funeral services will be held 1:00 pm, Saturday, January 29, 2022 at Family Life Bible Church, 150 Hogan Lane, Conway, AR. Visitation one hour prior to service.
Services entrusted to Larry G. Acklin Funeral Home, 910 Walnut Street, Conway, AR. “IN YOUR TIME OF NEED…WE CARE.”
