Mrs. Morrison was born June 12, 1928, in Utica, and lived most of her life in Hinds County. During her 82 years, she was a devoted wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was an active member of Lebanon Presbyterian Church, the Utica 20th Century Club and was very fond of their monthly Supper Club gathering. She enjoyed sewing for her children and grandchildren, traveling and, in her later years, developed a passion for painting.
