Mrs. Morris' attachment to Norway continued the rest of her life, including the last 27 years she resided in Atlanta.
Agnes Inseborg Morris, 84, died Tuesday of complications following a stroke at Belmont Village Assisted Living Community in Buckhead. Her memorial service will be 3 p.m. Monday at Peachtree Presbyterian Church's Kellett Chapel.
After her husband retired, the two of them moved to Florida, but she soon grew bored with the beach lifestyle, said her daughter, Christine Roberts of Bethlehem. So in 1983, the Morrises decided to settle in Atlanta, partly because their daughters had each chosen to live in this region but also because of Atlanta's cultural attractions.
Mrs. Morris especially cherished the concerts of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and the productions of the Atlanta Opera. For years she was a volunteer for both organizations, acting as an usher and as a docent.
She joined the Atlanta chapter of World Wings International, a philanthropic association of former Pan Am flight attendants. "She was so excited to go to our convention in Oslo and invite the group to convene two years later in Atlanta," said Nancy McAllister of Alpharetta, a fellow WWI member.
And Mrs. Morris' Norwegian dishes were big favorites at club meetings and Christmas dinners of Atlanta's Ladies of Norway. "Agnes was much admired by her women friends for her graciousness and by their husbands for her cooking," said a friend, Randi Conlisk of Hayesville, N.C.
Survivors also include two sisters, Wendy Arneson of Oslo and Karin Müller of Zurich, Switzerland, and three grandchildren.
