Felicity Morton Obituary, Death – Felicity ‘Fliss’ Morton, 21, of Brisbane died in a fatal crash near Gladstone, Queensland, on Wednesday afternoon while returning home from her grandma’s funeral. Felicity was an emerging feminist playwright, director, actor, and model. She was remembered as the “sweetest girl”. When the tragedy occurred, the local resident of Brisbane, who was traveling with her brother Liam and her cousins, was on their way back from Rockhampton, where the funeral had taken place.
According to Westside News, Ms. Morton was a playwright, director, and producer in addition to being a co-founder of the feminist theater collective T!TS AKIMBO. She was also reportedly scheduled to begin her studies at the University of London the following year after completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Queensland University of Technology with a concentration in drama. Her family shared with the local magazine that she “was a little beam of brightness for everyone” and “had a heart of gold.”
Rosemary, Felicity’s mother, said in an interview with Westside News that her daughter “was always the mediator.” “The meaning of her name is happiness, and she had the unique ability to spread joy and laughter wherever she went,” the narrator says. Ms. Morton was the fourth of five children, and she and her siblings, who are all quite close in age to one another, were inseparable. According to what her mother said to a reporter, “The kids are constantly checking in with each other.”
The Forensic Crash Unit of the Queensland Police Force is reportedly conducting an investigation into what took place right now. It has been established that a truck collided with the vehicle in which Ms. Morton was traveling, and the other three members of the family were taken to the hospital with injuries that were not considered to be life-threatening. The police are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed what happened or who may have dashcam evidence to come forward.
