Dianne “Dee” Morlock (nee Eberhart) of Columbia Station received her wings the morning of January 19, 2022, two days prior to her 80th birthday. She achieved her goal being at home and in the comfort and care of her loving family prior to her passing, a love and service that she had provided to many in her career as a nurse and as caregiver to immediate family.
Dee had many lifelong friendships from her days as a graduate of Avon Lake High School and of the MD Johnson School of Nursing in Elyria, Ohio. She had a long successful career as a registered nurse, retiring from the main campus of the Cleveland Clinic years ago.
The wife of a farmer, she served many years learning the art of canning and cooking. Many will miss the fresh pies she baked or the jars of jams and jellies she created. She enjoyed the hobbies of knitting, sewing and quilting throughout her life. Many friendships developed through her service to Farm Bureau, 4-H, service to her Church, as well as the many school/booster programs she was involved with while raising her boys. In retirement, she cherished the ability to play cards and dominoes weekly with a group of friends as her health allowed.
Dee was preceded in death by her parents C. William and Lillian Eberhart, her brother Barry Eberhart, her in-laws Hubert and Lois Morlock. Sister-in-law Alice Crofford. She is now happily reunited with her beloved husband Louis who passed in 2005.
Dee is survived by her sons, Steven (Kelli) Morlock, David (Sandy) Morlock and William Morlock all of whom reside and continue to operate the family farm. She was also very proud to be “Granny” to Josh, Jessi, Chase and Ella as well as “Aunt Dee” to her nieces and nephews. She enjoyed remaining in contact with her many cousins and friends.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, March 5, 2022 at the event center of the American Wilderness Campgrounds, 17273 Avon-Belden Rd (Rt.83) Grafton, Ohio opening at 1:00PM with service at 1:30 PM and a reception to follow. Donation may be made in Dianne’s name to Echonet.org, or the Columbia Methodist Youth Fellowship.
The Bauer Funeral Home, Valley City has the honor of serving the Morlock family.
