Obituary for Judith Lynn "Judi" Morse

Judith Lynn "Judi"  Morse
Judi Morse, 66, of Atwood, went home to the Lord on Sunday, July 14, 2019. Judi was born November 22, 1952, to Joseph and Patricia (Miller) Esch. One of ten children, Judi learned the value of hard work and compassion.

Judi went to Central Catholic Grade School and graduated from Union High School, both in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She met Bob Morse in 1975 and they moved to Colorado in 1978. They married May 7, 1979, after a three and a half year courtship. Together they devoted their lives to raising their six children.

Judi earned a business degree from Community College of Aurora and went on to be Plant Manager of two plastics factories. She was a true leader to her employees and took pride in her work.

Judi loved the outdoors, going for rides, scouting for deer, and especially loved her puppies, Daisy and Peaches. Peaches gave her great comfort in her final years.

Not only extremely intelligent, Judi was also wise beyond her years. She held true to ther convictions and had integrity and grit. She had an infectious laugh and her smile could brighten the darkest of rooms. She had character, humor, determination, decency and kindness of spirit. She believed in humanity, had a deep love for her family and friends, and had a strong faith in God.

No matter her struggles, she always had a kind word and helping hand to offer. When Bob and Judi moved to Atwood, they settled in quickly and were welcomed by the community.

Judi leaves behind a legacy of strength, compassion, success, hope, love and faith in the hearts of all who loved her.

Judi was preceded in death by her parents and her younger sister, Lizzy. She is survived by her husband Bob; siblings, Debbie Jo, Paul, Steve, Mary, Loretta, Lesa, Katie and Anna; children, Marie, Keith, Craig, Debbie, Shawn and Stacy; 15 grandchildren and numerous great and great-great grandchildren.

Her family would like to thank the staff at Dreiling Schmidt Cancer Center, Hays, KS, KU Med Center, KC, KS and Rawlins County Health Center, Atwood, KS.

They would also like to say a special thank you to Judi’s friends at Bible Study, Cheryl Pearce and lifelong friend, Val Smith, for their continued love and support.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her name to

Judi’s family will be hosting a Celebration of Life on September 7, 2019, at the First Christian Church, Atwood, from noon to 5:00 p.m. They would love to see everyone there.

Judi, we know that you will be watching over us and you will always be so greatly missed. You have been and will continue to be our angel. We love you.
