Doreen Morton

December 21, 1931 — May 13, 2023

Doreen Morton passed away on Saturday May 13th, surrounded by family at her side, at the age of 91. 

She was born in Scottsbluff, Nebraska to Grover & Alta Moody the youngest of 7 kids. Her family moved to Washington State and settled in Sumner. WA. Our family was proud to know our mother as Queen Doreen Moody in 1948 of the Puyallup Daffodil Festival Parade.

After high school graduation from Sumner High School in 1949 she worked in the Puyallup Valley and met our Father Max Morton(2001) from Puyallup and they were married in February of 1951. They started a family and 5 children would call them Mom & Dad. After being a stay at home mom raising 5 children, Mom joined the family business, coordinating sales for the company in the 5 western states. It was during those years that Mom and Dad fell in love with Montana and decided to move to Ennis in May 1995. Thereafter they were joined by 4 of their children that now call Montana home. 

Mom is survived by her sister, Bonnie Blanscet of Puyallup, her children, Jeff Morton (Stephanie) Puyallup, Lynn Morton Ennis, Patti Sutter(Javier) Ennis, Peggy Nestegard (Bart) Ennis, and Jay Morton (Dana) Three Forks, 15 grandchildren, & 13 great grandchildren. 

She was preceded in death by husband Max (2001) and Grand child Clayton (1987).

Our memories of Mom are many, but her unwavering love of her children and grandkids, and extended family are life long lessons for all of us to carry on in her name. 

We wouldn’t be doing her justice if we didn’t mention her skill of cooking. Her cooking was the best, and we have all had friends and family tell us how lucky we were. Due to that many of us, from time to time, have had to diet because we enjoyed her food.

Our family is saddened by Mom’s passing, but so proud to call her Mom & Gramma"
