Morris, Laura A. (25 NOV 1859 - 26 JUL 1915)

Mrs. Morris, who has been suffering for a quarter century, passed away quietly early Monday morning.

Laura Arvilla Head was born Nov. 25th, 1859 in Cataract, Wis. She moved to Neillsville, Clark County with her parents in 1867 and graduated from the Neillsville High School at its second commencement. For a time she taught school.

She was married in 1878 to Thomas Morris of Janesville, Wis. Mr. Morris died in 1910.

Mrs. Morris was a member of the Presbyterian Church and her faith in God sustained here during her prolonged suffering. Her cheerfulness and patience were remarkable, to which her many friends will testify. Being an old resident of Neillsville, many in this locality will mourn her death.

She leaves three children, Claire C. of Portersville, Cal., Miss Blanche Morris and Lynn Morris, both of Neillsville; Mrs. Almira Head, her mother, also of Neillsville, and a brother, Maurice G., survive her.

The funeral service will be held at the home Thursday at 2 o’clock. Rev. S.B. Pinney will have charge of the service. The music will be rendered by Miss Zura Fricke, Mrs. Burge and Miss Imig.
