Alice Morris Bacon
Baker City, Died 2017
Alice, a life-
long Method-
ist, and long
time resident
of Baker
City, passed
away peace-
fully with her
Alice
husband of
Bacon
62 years and
family nearby.
A Memorial celebrating
her life will be scheduled
in the Spring, when fam-
ily and friends can safely
travel.
Alice was warm and
kind. She was generous,
welcoming, clever, devoted
to her family, lively, hard
working, dependable, and
a friend to many.
Alice was born to Sam
and Oradelia (Chmidling)
Morris at the family farm
house in the Missouri Flat
area. The Morris family
came from Missouri to
settle in Baker County over
125 years ago, originally
intending to raise thor-
oughbred race horses. But,
apparently cattle fed their
large families better.
She had many fond
memories of family
reunions and huge cousin
gatherings at the various
family farm orchards; and
she enjoyed organizing
gatherings later.
Alice and her dear cousin
Nellie (Perkins) Ed-
wards would ride a horse
bareback with a hint of
mischief. She rode a horse
to school with her brother
until a bus was available.
But, after she got frostbite
waiting at the bus stop
she wintered in town with
cousins so she could walk
to school. Her biggest
adjustment to town living
was the shock of drinking
cold milk; she was used
to it being still warm from
the cow.
Four of her brothers
served in World War II in
the Pacifi c region (includ-
ing the Philippines, New
Guinea, and Luzon), and in
the European Theater in-
cluding Africa (Cassablan-
ca, Africa, Sicily, France,
Germany, and Austria). As
a young teen she collected
metal and items for the war
effort with her friends.
Alice attended Baker
High School, and gradu-
ated in the class of 1948.
Yearbook notes remark
how peppy, spirited,
vivacious, and beloved
she was. She delighted in
helping plan, decorate, and
organize the many class
reunions.
After graduation, she
attended Willamette
University, then returned
to work at the Baker City
Bank (and many itera-
tions of banks since then),
the library, and the movie
theater.
She met her future
husband, Leonard “Bake”
Bacon, at the movie
theater. They both enjoyed
adventures in the moun-
tains and at the snake river
area. They were married in
1955 at the Baker United
Methodist Church. After
a decade of enjoying their
nieces and nephews, they
adopted their son Charles
Leonard from the Kala-
math Falls area. On the
same trip, they also picked
up a retired race boat
named ‘Blue Velvet.’ Thus
began the adventure of
parenting and water skiing
hijinx. A few years later,
they had a premie daugh-
ter, Mary Alice. Soon their
house became a regular
hang-out place for her
children’s friends. They
enjoyed Alice’s snacks,
clever banter, and her
piano (originally used for
Alice & Bake’s parties and
sing-alongs).
Alice used her book-
keeping skills as the
Secretary for the Burnt
River Irrigation District;
handling her husband’s
electrical contracting busi-
ness, Bacon Electric; and
the fi nances for numerous
organizations and boards
where she volunteered. She
also managed the fi nances
and medical care for two
of her local brothers and
her parents.
Raised as a farm girl, Al-
ice was always determined
and strong. She fought
and beat cancer three
times, and dueled with an
infection of MSSA from
hip surgery. She never
hesitated to speak her mind
if something didn’t seem
right.
Alice was always busy
thoughtful, and involved.
She volunteered for her
Beta Sigma Phi sorority
for 60+ years, helped at the
VFWand was in the VFW
Auxilliary, counted ballots
and helped with voting
booths, bowled in the
Coffee Cup League, was a
Lady Elk, organizing and
helping with school events,
gardened, read voraciously,
researched for her invest-
ment club, enjoyed baking
(especially known for her
‘creative use of zuchini’
recipes and potent rum
cake), and showed her
creativity with needle-
point and other crafts. She
enjoyed fi shing, water ski-
ing (Leonard encouraged
her to climb up top when
making waterskiing pyra-
mids), boating along the
Snake River, driving in the
countryside, playing cards
(bridge and pinochle), and
enjoying her property on
the Snake River. She was
also interested in family
and local history; mak-
ing a trip to Kansas and
Missouri to visit impor-
tant family locations.
She would check on her
parents, in-laws, brothers,
friends, and neighbors –
often bringing items from
her garden or baked goods.
She would readily wel-
come many into their home
and cabin, and ‘put another
potato on’ when additional
guests arrived.
Survivors include
her husband, Bake, of
62+ years; sister-in-law
Laura Morris; sister-in-law
Gladys McKelvy; sister-
in-law and brother-in-law
Adele and Olen Ragsdale;
daughter Mary “Sam”
McTavish, son-in-law
Alec McTavish; and two
grandchildren, Lindsay and
Hayden McTavish. She
leaves behind dearly loved
neices, adored nephews,
and their families - Don
Morris, Ann Morris,
Deanna (Ragsdale) Lawlor,
Mike Ragsdale, Kathy
House, Gloria Beutler,
Blake Bivins, Terry Howe;
and many friends of her
children whom have called
her “mom” —especially
Shelly Shively.
Alice was preceded in
death by her parents Sam
Morris and Oradelia
(Chmidling) Morris; six
brothers and two sisters -
Alfred, Julius (Jude), Bill,
Vernon, Don, Martha, and
twins Paul and Pauline;
her son Charles Bacon;
neice Susan Morris; and
too many of her children’s
lifelong friends who kept
in touch - especially Lynne
Gorte.
In lieu of fl owers, the
family suggests memorial
contributions to local food
banks of your choice (Al-
ice never wanted anyone
to go hungry), or the Baker
City United Methodist
Church Memorial Fund.
Donations can be made
thru Coles Tribute Center,
1950 Place St. Baker City,
OR 97814 and if one
