Junie Fay Morton Adams, 85, died November 30, 2019, at The Springs of Simpsonville.
Born in Greenville, she was a daughter of the late Romain and Julia Cox Morton.
Fay received many certificates from her training with Union Carbide / Amoco Chemical where she worked in the polymer lab for over 25 years before retiring to care for her elderly parents. She loved animals – especially dogs. She also loved flowers and spent as much time as she was able planting them with her family and neighbors. Her two favorites flowers were the purple Iris and her mother’s Red Hot Poker. There are two of these planted in the flower bed and flower pot outside the patio area at The Springs. She also played on the Union Carbide/Amoco golf, bowling leagues and received many trophies to show off for her outstanding play and sportsmanship. She was a lifetime member of the Women of the Moose that worked hand in hand with the Loyal Order of the Moose to give a helping hand to the needy. They also helped raise awareness for Mooseheart children’s city and Moosehaven Retirement care facility. Fay was a member of Conestee Church of God. The advice that Fay would give to each of us is to LISTEN before you speak, speak SOFTLY, and choose your word carefully when you respond. Be kind to EVERYONE at all times and to not intentionally hurt anybody’s feelings.
She is survived by four daughters, Marilyn Fish, Debra Morris, Paula Rogers and husband, Ric, and Denise Phillips and husband, Mark; eight grandchildren, Dana, Jason, April, Frank, Sherry, Emma, Shane and Nick; 16 great-grandchildren; three great-great-grandchildren; and a brother, Willard S. Morton and wife, Mattie.
Fay was preceded in death by a brother, Richard Earl Morton; sons-in-law Dale Fish, and Phil Morris; and grandson, Ben Morris.
The family would like to extend special thanks to the staff, medtechs, and caregivers at the Springs of Simpsonville that took such good care of our precious mama.
