Born Nov. 9, 1917, near Shackelford in Saline County, she was the daughter of the late Leslie E. Sullens and Birdie M. Belshe Sullens. She was a graduate of Malta Bend High School and graduated from Mercy Academy Business School. On June 19, 1948, she married Harold Morrow, who survives of the home. She and her husband farmed near Malta Bend until they retired from full-time farming in 1986, then continuing to reside on their farm. She enjoyed gardening, camping, fishing, cooking, quilting, traveling, and entertaining family and friends. She was a lifelong member of First Christian Church in Marshall. She was active in her local extension club for many years and was an avid supporter and worker in many school parent organizations in the Malta Bend School district. In her youth she was very active in her local 4-H Club and loved to tell about her trip to Chicago. She loved animals, especially her dog, Sam, and her cats. She was totally devoted to her family. Her smile radiated love and kindness to everyone she touched. Her love and selflessness will be greatly missed by all those who came to know and love her.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by one daughter, Jean Morrow of Columbia; one son, Robert Morrow and wife, Marla, of Montgomery City; one granddaughter, Leah Deeds and husband, Lee, of Granger, Iowa; and three great-grandsons, Jason Deeds, Nathan Deeds and Caleb Deeds, all of Granger, Iowa.
