Bluffton--Dorla Irene (Morris) McCoy, age 86, of Bluffton, Ohio, died peacefully on July 3, 2016, at 5:05 pm at the Mennonite Home in Bluffton. She had endured Alzheimer's Disease for over 15 years. Dorla was born in Lima, Ohio on June 13, 1930, to the late Harold L. and Miriam A. (Roush) Morris.

She is preceded in death by her brothers, Russell and Bernard Morris, and her loving husband Ronald McCoy.

Dorla graduated from Lima South High School in 1948, and married Ron in August 1949. She worked for the Lima School Board and then for Westinghouse. She was a loyal member and Sunday School Teacher at the St. Luke's Lutheran Church in Lima, and attended the English Lutheran Church in Bluffton. Dorla and Ron traveled extensively throughout their lives. They also enjoyed bowling, square dancing, golfing, and "showing the ponies" with their friends at various fairs. Dorla always had her camera with her and chronicled all of their travels as well as the lives of her family. Their slide shows at family gatherings were legendary. Dorla also enjoyed many years as a volunteer at the St. Rita's Hospital in Lima. After retiring, Ron and Dorla moved to their winter home in Wickenburg, Arizona, and a summer home in Bluffton. As Dorla's disease progressed, they returned to Bluffton, and Dorla moved to the Mennonite Home. Ron spent every day with her until he died. The family would like to express their heartfelt gratitude for the exceptional care and kindness bestowed on Dorla by the staff at the Mennonite Home.
