Dixie Morse

July 31, 1935 — April 15, 2020

Dixie Morse, 84, of South Plymouth, passed away after a courageous battle against cancer on Wednesday, April 15, 2020, at her home with loving family by her side.

Born on July 31, 1935, in DeRuyter, Dixie was the daughter Truman and Barbara (Ware) Duncan. After Dixie’s husband, Lewis, was discharge from the Navy, the two married in 1955. Dixie and Lewis enjoyed 64 wonderful years of marriage before his death on September 13, 2019. Dixie is also survived by her children, Mark (Paula) Morse, Michael (Vivian) Morse, Merianne Morse, Martin (Donna) Morse, and Malcolm Morse and his companion, Denise; 15 grandchildren; 23 great-grandchildren; and siblings, Vivian Rotella, Sharon (George) Pryor, Bobbie Monroe, Stanley (Angelita) Duncan, Laurie (Paul) Dale. In addition to her husband, Dixie was predeceased by her son, Mitchell J. Morse; her brother, David Duncan; her sister, Luann Mussision; and her brothers-in-law, Warren Monroe and Jim Rotella.

For decades, and until she retired, Dixie worked as the office manager for Lewis’s plumbing, heating, and electric business, called L.W. Morse & Son, which her son owns and operates today. Dixie enjoyed knitting, crocheting, reading books and magazines – especially her favorite, Woman’s World, cooking, and hosting family get-togethers. Dixie cherished her winters with Lew in Florida.

To honor Dixie’s wishes, there will be no funeral service or calling hours. A celebration of Dixie’s life will take place at the convenience of the family. Contributions in Dixie’s memory may be made to the Chenango SPCA or Hospice & Palliative Care of Chenango County.
