Anne Marie Morris

January 19, 1932 –
 February 18, 2022


Anne Marie Morris, recently of Dallas, Texas, passed away on February 18, 2022, at the age of 90. Anne was born in 1932 in Bridgeport, Connecticut to parents Anthony and Carmella Sciuto. Following her graduation from Central High School in Bridgeport, Connecticut, Anne enrolled in the School of Dental Hygiene at the University of Bridgeport, the first school for dental hygiene in the country. After receiving her degree, Anne spent the next 40 plus years working as a dental hygienist at various dental practices in the Bridgeport area. Anne also spent many of her retirement years volunteering for the Southbury Training School to raise monies to support special needs persons in the Southbury, Connecticut area.

Anne married the love of her life, James (“Jim”) Morris, in 1954. They were married for 64 years until Jim passed away in 2019. Anne and Jim had two children, James, Jr., who lives in Dallas, Texas, and Pamela, who lives in Oceanside, California. Anne loved traveling with her husband, especially on the coast of Maine. Anne and Jim enjoyed cheering for the University of Connecticut Women’s Basketball team.  Anne had great memories of time spent with friends in her long-time home in Heritage Village in Southbury, Connecticut and enjoyed the new friends she made while living at The Tradition in Dallas, Texas. Anne’s greatest joy was spending time with her family and her four grandsons, who were her pride and joy.

Anne was preceded in death by her parents, her husband and her siblings Marie and Philip. Anne is survived by her sister Josephine Yaroush of Monroe, Connecticut; her son James W. Morris, Jr. and his wife Lee Anne; her daughter Pamela Raskin and her husband Barry; and her four grandchildren Christopher Morris of Arlington, Virginia, William Morris of Dallas, Texas, Kyle Raskin of San Diego, California and Craig Raskin of Brooklyn, New York.

A private family service will be held on March 12, 2022. A memorial service will be held at Christ the Redeemer Church, Southbury, CT, tentatively scheduled for May 24, 2022, at 1:00 pm.  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Council for Life or the American Cancer Society

"Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again."

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
