Mrs. Morrison's maiden name was Sarah Lucinda Reynolds. She was born at Le Mars, Iowa, and she grew up there. She and Al Morrison were married at Le Mars in 1891. They began housekeeping immediately following their marriage on a farm near Grundy Center. A few years later they purchased a farm a mile south of Grundy Center which became the family home. They lived on this farm until they moved to their home in Grundy Center in 1930. Mr. Morrison died in 1941. During her period of illness her daughter, Mrs. Iva Beckman, took care of her mother.
