Delcy Schram Morrison: April 15, 1935 – Dec. 31, 2019

Delcy Schram Morrison passed away on Dec. 31, 2019. Born on April 15, 1935, to Gertrude H. and Harry S. Schram in Chicago, Ill., she spent much of her childhood in Highland Park, Ill. She attended Rollins College and worked as a tennis teaching pro at Highland Park Racquet Club and then at Palm Springs Racquet Club in Palm Springs, Calif.

She earned her master’s degree in psychotherapy and served as a therapist for the Camelback Hospitals Western Institute for Psychodrama in Phoenix, Ariz., under the direction of the late Dr. Elaine Eller Goldman until 1999. Together, they wrote “Psychodrama: Content and Process,” which was recognized as one of the leading texts on the method. The book was eventually translated and published in Japanese.

Upon retirement, Delcy moved to the town of Langley on Whidbey Island, Wash., where she resided and volunteered in the community for 20 years. She loved animals, painting, gardening and spending time with her family.

Despite a lifelong battle with Crohns Disease, Delcy’s indomitable, effervescent spirit ensured she lived a meaningful and impactful life.

She was predeceased by her parents and sister, Natalie. She is survived by former husband, John (Linda); sons, John Jr. (Cathy), and Christopher (Kris); grandchildren, Matthew (Jessica), Scott and Molly; cousin Lois; her beloved dachshund Gracie; as well as numerous dear friends and kind neighbors.

Memorial gifts and tributes may be made in Delcy’s name to the South Whidbey Community Center at P.O. Box 280, Langley, WA 98260.
