Krecia Birdwell (Morris)

Krecia Birdwell Morris was welcomed into the loving embrace of her heavenly Father Saturday, August 22, 2009, in Nacogdoches, Texas at the age of 52. She was born August 25, 1957. Krecia is survived by her parents, Willard and Juanita Birdwell of Nacogdoches; husband, Jon Morris of Nacogdoches; daughter, Kasey Van Norman and husband, Justin, of Nacogdoches; son, Blake Porter and wife, Suzanne of The Woodlands; daughter, Karly Porter of Nacogdoches; stepdaughter, Kasie Wellborn and husband, Eujene, of Beckville; stepson, Cory Morris and wife, Lorianne, of Beckville; brother, Kerry Birdwell of Nacogdoches.

She was preceded in death by her previous husband, Virgil Pierce of Nacogdoches. Krecia was a fifth-generation resident of Nacogdoches. She was a graduate of Nacogdoches High School, Class of 1975. She was employed at Fredonia State Bank (now BancorpSouth) as new-account manager for 17 years. Krecia's first love was Jesus Christ, and her second love was spending time with her family. Krecia was a valiant prayer warrior and lover of the Word of God. She enjoyed reading the Scriptures and praying them over her friends and family. Krecia battled cancer for two years, continually praising God through every moment. She is quoted as saying, "If one person will come to know Christ, as a result of my illness, then it was well worth the battle." Visitation will be from 6 until 8 p.m. Monday, August 24, 2009, at Laird Funeral Home. Celebration service will be held at 11 a.m. at Holly Springs Baptist Church Tuesday, August 25, 2009, with Pastor Homer Murray officiating; graveside service to follow at Sunset Memorial Park.

Krecia was an absolute sweetheart in every sense of the word!  She was my neighbor when we were kids growing up on Swann Drive and our dads worked together at NIBCO.

We were in Home Ec at NHS together and Pep Squad.

We reconnected through Facebook and I was saddened to hear of her battle with cancer.

I never hear Krecia's name that I don't remember that beautiful smile. I am so happy that I had the pleasure of spending time with Krecia our senior year along with sharing the Drill Team experience. She always had the warmest heart and thought so much of others. Our grandparents lived very close to each other and therefore she understood my love for spending time "in the country" at Carlisle. Krecia was a wonderful friend!
