Kathleen “Kathy” Joyce Morin, 54, passed away in Tampa, FL on Tuesday, December 21, 2021 after a month long fight with pneumonia. She was with family as she fought with a strong will- but the damage to her lungs could not be repaired. She will be remembered for her smile, her wonderful laugh, and the genuine warmth in her voice in her greeting. She had an amazing talent for numbers and dates; a birthday was never forgotten. She was a ferocious proponent for family, and no sacrifice was too great for her.
Kathy was born to Bill and Pat Edoff in Dearborn, MI on July 21, 1967. She grew up in Livonia and Farmington with older brother Mike, and younger sister and brother Karen and Eric. She graduated from Bishop Borgess High School in 1985 and received an associate’s degree from Henry Ford Community College. She married her husband Vince, in 1993, and immediately started a family of their own with Joshua (Kayley), Jake, Sabrina and Mikey. Her desire to become a nurse would never be, replaced with the desire to raise their children as a stay at home mother. As the children grew, she lent her talents to Henry Ford Hospital West Bloomfield as a nurses’ aid, using her uncanny ability to connect with people to help patients and their families.
A perfect day for Kathy would be to be outside with family and friends, working on her garden, or enjoying a sunny day at a lake or park. Surely, she is in that moment now, with some of her most favorite people who preceded her in death- her mother Pat, grandmother Norma “Gigi”, and beloved uncle Dennis.
