Patricia Kennealy-Morrison, rock journalist, author, partner of Jim Morrison, dies at 75

- a pagan and pioneering female rock journalist in the 60s and 70s, she later became a prolific sci-fi and mysteries author
- always a controversial figure in The Doors fandom due to her insistence on being Jim Morrison's wife (despite a non-legally binding Celtic hand-fasting ceremony & Morrison's long-time partner and avowed soulmate Pamela Courson), she changed her name to Kennealy-Morrison after his death
- she was an adviser on Oliver Stone's "The Doors" & even played a small role as the high priestness who "marries" fictional Jim and Patricia, but was later very critical of the movie and its portrayals
- cause of death was complications from heart disease
