Obituary

Linda Spears Morrison passed away on May 4, 2017 at her home in Conifer, Colorado. Her 2 year battle with cancer ended with her in the arms of close friends and family. Linda was 58 years old.

Linda was born on August 10, 1958 in New Orleans, the second daughter of H. Mendel Spears and Nancy F. Spears. She considered Wheeling WV her hometown. She attended West Virginia Wesleyan College, graduating with a BA in 1980.

After college, Linda moved to Colorado. A passionate climber and skier, her interests placed her on a path to meet her future husband Timothy W. Morrison. Tim and Linda were married in Wheeling on September 23, 1989. Linda and Tim made their home in the mountains west of Denver.


Christopher M. Morrison, her beloved son, was born June 1, 1996. While more active pursuits slid off the front burners, young motherhood provided a new avenue for her seemingly boundless talents. This was a time when Linda directed her interests towards emergency medicine, initially working towards EMS qualification. She wanted to be prepared for anything unforeseen at their home, the somewhat remote TLC Ranch, while waiting for Chris to be big enough to start his skiing and climbing introductions.

Linda's emergency medicine career grew to allow her to lend her talents to the Elk Creek Volunteer Fire Department, Winter Park Ski Patrol (where she had been a ski instructor for over 15 years), and Littleton Hospital ED.

Linda's essence was accomplishment. Her interest and involvement in all things lead inevitably to expertise. She pursued her interests full throttle, never compromising her desire to enjoy her climbing, skiing, running, cycling and horseback riding while at the same time always sensing and understanding the right balance between individual fulfillment and a grounded appreciation for being a compassionate, contributing, responsible member of a loving community of friends and neighbors. She will live long in the hearts and memories of her many dear friends and family who were privileged to be a part of her journey.

Linda is survived by her parents, Mendel and Nancy Spears; her husband Tim; her son Chris and her sisters Susan Hughes and Betsy Holloway.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday June 3, 2017 from 11AM-2PM at the Morrison Residence.
