Ninnie Vee “Tuffy” Morrison

Ninnie Vee “Tuffy” Morrison, 87, of Dunlap, Tennessee passed away peacefully, Saturday, August 19, 2023.

Tuffy was born April 12, 1936, to the late Joe and Clara Ashburn in Whitwell, Tennessee.

She was a loving mother, grandmother, and friend. Tuffy has been a faithful Christian woman her entire adult life and a member of the Church of God faith. She was an amazing cook, prayer warrior and hard worker. There was never a time someone needed a comforting word of God that she was not there to encourage them in Christ. Although the family’s hearts are breaking, they will celebrate her life and homegoing and will find comfort knowing she is in heaven.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 62 years, Charlie “Boogus” Morrison; daughter, Myrna Nolan; parents, Joe and Clara Ashburn; brother, Elbert Ashburn, sister, Sheryl Green; granddaughter, Michelle Morrison.
