(303) 674-7750 Helping During a Time of Loss

Laurie Lee Morrison

December 16, 1955 - September 30, 2016

Laurie Lee Morrison, 60, departir on September 30, 2016 at home.img_1397

Laurie is survived by her loving husband, of 38 years, Roger Compton.

Born in Corona, California, she graduated from University of Colorado, Denver, in 1991 with a Bachelor of Fine Art and a Bachelor of Science (Geography). She was a student of the human condition; an “unknown” artist, poet, writer, painter, potter, philosopher, dreamer, doer, because she wanted it that way until after her passing. Laurie held restraint as one of the most powerful of virtues. She was the most creative, intelligent, informed, well read, rational, and fair person I know of. She loved her work, her cats, yoga, flowers and all of life. Her sense of humor was boundless, serious and silly.

We traveled through the Americas and Europe to see the treasures that we studied in college and she knew the purpose and wonder of the most ancient of tools, practices, and places. She had an innate knowledge of how the universe and all of life flows. She was a pillar of strength; the seeker, magician, wizard, shaman, teacher, dancer that her dreams lead us to.

All Laurie wanted was “to be part of the world that is good.” 

She is love.

    I am so sorry to hear about Laurie passing. I have such fond memories of the both of you and the great sense of humor and free spirits that were your whole embodiment. I learned a lot from you as a little girl, some good some bad LOL. You both helped me to be the free thinker that I am AND the rebel that hides inside me.(Maybe it doesn’t always hide) I think of both of you and Tom, Donna, the whole Yarrow St gang. My heart goes out to you!
    Hugs Heidi
