DELILAH M. MORRIS
The unexpected ever awaits us as we travel along the pathway of life and we have to partake of grief and sorrow. So it was Sunday morning June 23, 1935, at 11:00 when the death angel visited a home near Nimrod and took away a beloved mother, Delilah M. Morris. She was the widow of William George Morris and was 82 years, 7 months and 25 days old. Until only a few days before her death, she had been in her usual health. When she became ill the family physician was called but he could not stay the hand of death. All that loving hands could do for her was done, but God knows best. She leaves to mourn her loss seven children, three sons and four daughters; Sam Morris, of Woodridge; John T. Morris of Ruth, William Durrette Morris of Nimrod, Ludelia Morris of Earlysville, Emma Morris of Gilbert Station and Polly and Izattie Morris at home. One son, Noah H. Morris preceded her to the grave 12 years ago. She is survived by two sisters, Mrs. Frances Shiflett, of Nortonsville, and Mrs. Mary Shiflett, of Criglersville. She also leaves 25 grandchildren, 6 great-grandchildren and a host of relatives and friends. She has been a member of the Christian church for 35 years and was ready to go to the bedside of the sick and willing to lend a helping hand to those who she might be able to help. Children were always welcome in her home. She was beloved by all who knew her and will be greatly missed in her home where she always greeted her friends with a smile. We have parted but not forever. The sun goes down to rise up on some other shore. We mourn, but not as those without hope. A burial was at Evergreen Monday afternoon, June 25. The services were conducted by Rev. H. S. Knight, assisted by the Rev. S. H. Coates. The hymns selected were those which she often sang to her children around the fireside years ago. Active pall-bearers were; Homer, Ernest, Jesse, Cecil, Givens, and Clayburn Morris. Four of her granddaughters were flower girls, Susie Lawson and Marie, Margaret and Irene Morris. Mr. E. Y. Vernon was undertaker. Dearest mother you have left us, left this world of care and pain. We tried so hard to save you. But our loss is her eternal gain. No one knows the silent heartache, only those who have lost can tell. Of the grief we bear in silence; for our mother we loved so well. She slumbers so sweetly, let her sleep on. Her suffering is ended, her trouble all gone. Farewell, mother, a long farewell, you must go as well as others; in Heaven I hope we all shall meet - father, mother, sisters, brothers. The family wish express a thanks to the friends and neighbors who were so kind to them during the illness and death of their mother. Her daughter, Mrs. Ludelia Morris, Earlysville, Virginia.

DOLORES E. SHIFFLET MORRISS
Dolores “Dee” Eloise (Shifflet) Morriss, 82, of Saint Johns died early Saturday morning (September 24) at the Alterra Clare Bridge Memory Care Unit in Delta Township two days after suffering from a cerebral hemorrhage. Dee was born on January 27, 1923, in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, the daughter of Fred B. and Estelle (Moon) Shifflet. As a little girl she contracted tuberculosis and spent about 18 months in a sanatorium. It was there that she became fascinated with the medical field and decided to become a laboratory technician. Following her graduation from Cuyahoga Falls High School in 1940, Dee attended Kent State University, then transferred to the University of Kentucky where she graduated in 1944. She received straight A’s in her pre-med classes (including organic chemistry). Despite urging by her professors to enroll in medical school, she stuck with her original ambition and became a laboratory technician. Dee met William (Bill) J. Morriss Jr., a GI in uniform, when he cut in on her at a dance at the U. of K. They were married on Groundhog Day, February 2, 1946 at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Akron, Ohio, less than a week after Bill was discharged from the Army after serving in France during WWII. They were married for nearly 57 years. Bill took advantage of the GI Bill and enrolled at the University of Michigan Law School in Ann Arbor. Dee worked at University Hospital until their first daughter was born in 1949. Dee was called to needlework like some are called to the ministry, or music. Her interest in sewing began very early; by the age of three she already loved doing embroidery. As a mother and homemaker, she made most of her clothing, her daughters’ clothing and occasionally tailored her husband’s and son’s suit coats. The more difficult the project was, the better she liked it. She took pride in upholstering her furniture. She refinished all of the woodwork in her house and wallpapered many of its rooms. She also loved roses and at one time she was tending over 250 bushes in her formal gardens. As one of her good friends, Jane Idzkowski, said, “Dee was always busy.” After raising four children, Dee turned her attention to lace making, and in a short time she was teaching classes in bobbin and Honiton lace and was active in the Capital Area Lace Group in Lansing. Dee became skilled in metal-threads embroidery and organized a group of women from St. Johns Episcopal Church. They made new altar hangings, fair linens, kneelers, chasubles and stoles for each of the church seasons. Many of the items were designed by her husband. Dee was active in Child Study Club, the Perrin Palmer Elementary School PTA, St. Johns Woman’s Club, Crystal Sailing Club, St. Johns Episcopal Church, and various lace groups. She also volunteered her services at Family Planning and the Clinton County Migrant Clinic. Bill and Dee moved to Saint Johns in 1952 after Bill graduated from U of M Law School. In 1955 Bill and Dee bought their home at 208 W. State Street where they raised their four children. Dee lived there until March of this year after which she took up residence at the Alterra memory care facility in Delta Township. She is survived by four children, Jane Morriss of St. Johns; Carol Morriss of Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Lee Morriss-Mueller of Atoka, Tennessee; and William “Jud” Morriss III of Conroe, Texas; six grandchildren, Jeremy Miller of West Virginia; Jesse Simmons of Ayer, Massachusetts; Brian Rueckert of St. Johns, William J. Morriss IV and Heather Morriss of Spring, Texas; and Halie Hodge of Conroe, Texas; five great grandchildren, Cory Miller, Kyle Miller, Tyler Miller, Travis Jack Miller, and Nathan Nicholas Miller, all of Hanoverton, Ohio. Dee was preceded in death by her husband and one brother, Fred B. Shifflet Jr. Funeral services will be held 10:00 A.M. Wednesday, September 28, 2005 at the St. Johns Episcopal Church with the Rev. Richard Anderson officiating. The family will receive friends 5-7 P.M. Tuesday at the Osgood Funeral Home. Memorials may be made to St. Johns Episcopal Church, St. Johns.
