Morris, Susan Grace age 67, of Richfield passed away on May 30th, 2024 surrounded by family. Sue was born to Stanley "Stan" and Margaret "Muggs" Tilly in Minneapolis, MN on March 10, 1957. Their first born child, a role she excelled at until the very end. She was often lovingly referred to by her family as Martha Stewart. Sue never forgot a birthday and was the perpetual planner of all gatherings. Sue graduated from Macalester College with a Bachelor of Arts in history. From the stories she told it sounds like she also earned a minor at O'Gara's. After college she worked in child support for Hennepin County where she made countless lifelong friends. She retired in 2019. In 1983 Sue met Marshall while vacationing in Jamaica in a story made for the movies. Their connection was instantaneous, Sue and Marshall were happily married for 39 years. Most days you could find both of them working outside in their garden followed by happy hour on the porch and a homemade meal. While for many years she welcomed her grandpets with an open heart, always making sure they were included at holidays, she took on the role of a lifetime when she became a Grandma last October. She cherished her time with Talia, reading together, teaching her to play (i.e. bang on) the piano, watching the Today Show and dancing to the Eras tour. Sue was preceded in death by her father, Stanley Guy Tilly and infant sister, Leeann Marie Tilly. She is survived by her loving husband, Marshall Morris; daughter, Kaela (Matt) Kruse; step-daughter, Ramone Morris; beloved granddaughter, Talia Kruse; mother, Muggs Tilly; sister, Barb McDaniel; brother, Dave (Cindy) Tilly and numerous nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly. A celebration of life will be held at a later date this summer. In lieu of flowers her family requests that you take time to putter in the garden, bake something for someone you love or have a glass of wine with good friends. To say she will be missed is an understatement. Morris Nilsen Chapel 612-869-3226
