Amadita "Amet" Morris

Amadita “Amet” Contreras Andal Morris, age 70, of Marion, Illinois, passed away on Monday, April 6, 2020 at 7:17 p.m. at her home.

Amet was born on April 7, 1949, in Quezon City, Philippines, a daughter of Abelardo P. and Amada Sejera (Contreras) Andal, Sr.  She married Charles Ray “Corkey” Morris on Feburary 18, 1978 in Rosiclare, Illinois and he preceded her in death on December 20, 2017 after 39 years of marriage.  She was a proud graduate of La Concordia College, Manila, Philippines, graduating with honors, earning her Bachelor’s degree in nursing.  Amet’s passion in life was saving lives and she proudly worked as an R.N. until her retirement from SIH.  During her working career, she worked in various hospitals, including time as an intensive care nurse, and particularly enjoyed her time doing helicopter transfers.  Amet loved Filipino gatherings, gardening, singing karaoke, and was known for her exceptional Halloween costumes.  She was a member of Sacred Heart Church in the Philippines, and after moving to Marion, she was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church.

Survivors include her daughter, Trisha Morris; six siblings, Corazon Andal Sta. Teresa, Alexis Contreras Andal, Grace Andal (Capt. Eduardo) Bolivar, Adamson (Arlene Mungcal) Contreras Andal, Ma. Amabel Andal Brito and Anamor Andal (Wendell) Kilpatrick; her sister-in-law, Agnes Galapate Andal; and numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; one sister, Socorro Andal Ladim; one brother, Abelardo Contreras Andal, Jr.; and two brothers-in-law, Bienvenido Sta. Teresa and Pemco Leonora Valentino Brito.

Amet’s wishes were to be cremated and a memorial mass will be held at a later date.
