Merri Anna Morris

April 11, 1978 — January 19, 2022

Merri Anna (Manna) Morris passed away January 19 at the age of 43 in Idaho Falls, ID.

Manna was the 6th child of 9, and was born in Rexburg, ID in 1977. She was raised in Shelley, ID and graduated high school in 1996. After high school, she worked at the family Coast to Coast hardware store, then worked for Maverick, moving to Utah to work at their corporate offices.

In 2001 her daughter Midori was born, who she loved dearly. After Maverick, she moved to Florida and worked for Frito-Lay. Another job at Frito-Lay took her to Elko, NV where she lived for a few years, and then moved back to Idaho Falls, where she worked for Johnson Brothers.

Manna was an extremely hard worker, and very smart. She was well-known for her “get-it-done” attitude, independence, and fierce determination. She was always quick to laugh and joke. Manna was also a helper and problem solver. Most of the time, she had the solution to a problem figured out before everyone else realized there was even a problem. If she didn’t know how to do something, she had it figured out pretty quick. Her and Mike liked to work on projects together, last summer they fixed up a 22 foot boat and spent a lot of time together on the water.

She loved the color purple, target shooting, raising goats, classic muscle cars (remember the silver Trans-Am?) and traveling. She loved living in Florida, and wanted to move back to Cocoa Beach. She had recently taken up scuba diving with Mike. The warm sun and water were her elements.

Manna also enjoyed growing vegetables and having fresh tomatoes through December. Her favorite condiment was green Tabasco sauce, which she ordered by the literal gallon. She was a good cook, and liked to take food for potlucks at work.
Sadly, Manna leaves behind many who loved her. She is survived by her daughter Midori, fiancé Mike Curnutt, mother Florence, and siblings Dell, Angelia, Allison, Jeff, Eve, Kate, David, and Emily.

A celebration of her life will be held at 2:00 p.m. Sunday, May 29, 2022 at the Teton Events Center, 3885 Crestwood Lane, Idaho Falls, Idaho 83404. All who knew and loved Manna are invited to attend.
