Patricia Ellen Morrison (nee Martin), born June 19, 1962, passed away Sunday, October 14, 2007. She was a member of the Kaw and Osage Nations.
Patty was a graduate of Baylor University and Baylor Law School. She was a member of Kappa Delta sorority. She practiced law with The Williams Companies Legal Department from 1990 to 2002. She was appointed by President Bush to the office of Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior in 2002, where she served until 2004. She is survived by: her husband, Kevin Morrison; son, Ilya both of Collinsville, Oklahoma; mother, Mary Ellen (Cross) Martin of Cushing, Oklahoma; sister, Susann Box of Cushing; and brother, John Martin, of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Patty was an outstanding lawyer; an excellent friend and colleague. Her passing comes as quite a shock. Few words can describe the deep sympathy I feel for her husband Kevin and their son, Ilya.
