Berlie Morris was born on May 12, 1918 in Darlington, South Carolina, daughter of the late Burrell Wilson and Tisbey Elizabeth Smith Wilson. As a young girl, the family moved to Allentown, Pennsylvania and later to Roselle, New Jersey where Berlie attended the public schools and graduated from the eighth grade.

On May 15, 1938, she married Charles Morris and they were blessed with two sons and five daughters. The family lived in Roselle and Linden during their fifty-nine years of marriage.

Berlie lived life to the fullest; she enjoyed cooking, spending time with family and having fun with her friends. She could sit on the front porch for hours, being close to those she loved so much.

An active member of First Baptist Church for many years, she served on the Usher Board and the Missionary Board.

On Sunday, February 5, 2017, at her home surrounded by family Berlie passed away peacefully at the age of 98.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Charles Morris in 1996; son, Charles Morris, Jr. in 2003; grandson, Joseph Morris in 2012; and great-grandson, Aaron Gates in 2015.

Berlie Morris leaves to cherish precious memories her loving children, Juanita Morris, Frederick Morris, Patricia Dismukes, Barbara Gates, Alice Morris and Jennifer Anderson; thirteen grandchildren: Terri, Duane, Donna, Traci, Lionel, Lisa, Jonathan, Reuben, Joel, Johanna, Morris, Danielle and Joy; seventeen great-grandchildren: Justin L., Justin S., Chaad, Jetaya, Javice, Jaquay, Celina, Kearyn, Joshua, Lionel, Jayla, Jayden, Aliyana, Desiree, Kasani, Josiah and Jace; five great-great grandchildren: Phoenix, Jordan, Jesai, Anniease and Luna.
