Lucille Morris, 95, passed away on November 15 in Overland Park, KS. She was born in Axtell, Nebraska on Feb. 15, 1922 to Marion and Ellen (Dahl) Hendrickson.
As a member of the great generation, she grew up in the depression, moved with her family to “greener pastures”, and never stopped adapting. She survived three husbands, worked as a banker, and raised 2 daughters. She traveled the world and painted the landscapes. With a ready smile and a sassy comeback, she never let the world get her down.
She was preceded in death by husbands, John Flies, E.A. Tofari and Harold Morris; daughters, Joyce Flies and Karon Flies Stroup.
She is survived by daughter, Beverly (Allen) Booe, granddaughters, Julie Gadwood, Carrie Mandigo and Lori Sigler; son-in-law, Don Stroup; brother, Dale Hendrickson; sister, Shirley Petersen; and 6 great grandchildren, all who will remember her as a strong and joyful soul.
Service will be 11 a.m. on December 9 at Village Presbyterian Church, Prairie Village. For a full obituary, please visit
