Obituary for Sandra Kay Morris

Sandra Kay Morris, a longtime resident of Brighton, passed away in the loving care of her family on Saturday, January 20, 2018, at the age of 78.

Sandra was born March 15, 1939 in Bay City, MI to Peter Legatz and Hilda (Ties) Legatz. She excelled at writing in high school, becoming editor of her school newspaper. At Michigan State University, she majored in Journalism. Sandra began her career as a reporter for United Press International after graduation. She then worked for the Detroit Parks and Recreation Department, creating several successful public relations campaigns. After marrying and raising a family, Sandra began a second career in real estate, earning not only a broker’s license but also a builder’s license. Creatively, she also pursued her passion to write plays, earning high marks in graduate playwriting courses at the University of Michigan. In 1988, Sandra won a prestigious Hopwood Award for her play "A Persistence of Vision", a distinction she shares with many famous playwrights like Arthur Miller (Death of a Salesman).

Sandra was preceded in death by Mr. Charles W. Morris, her beloved husband of nearly 54 years. Sandra is survived by her sons, Jason Charles Morris and Rhys Rainsford (Michelle) Morris; grandchildren: Mackenzie Scott, Alec Donovan and Veronica Rain, as well as many extended family members and close friends.
