Birth: Sep. 8, 1875
Dade County
Missouri, USA
Death: Aug. 3, 1960
Greene County
Missouri, USA

Veda, the youngest of fifteen children born to Solomon and Mary Ann Wilson, lived most of her upbringing in the town of Everton, MO. As a young woman she attended Dadeville Academy, the next town north of Everton, living with her older sister Ellen Wilson Landers. It was there at the academy that she met Albert G. Morris, a Dadeville boy who was in the first graduating class of the Dadeville Academy in 1895. Albert's parents had a farm right on the edge of town.

Albert and Veda married at the farm home of her mother, her father had died six months before, at Hampton, Missouri on December 30, 1896. They lived with her in-laws until they could purchase the cottage next door to them. Albert taught school for one year, was a salesman for International Harvester Company, then opened a hardware store in Dadeville. He was operating the hardware store when he died in 1908, of what today would be colon cancer.

Veda was left to raise three young children. She never remarried, but kept the house next to Albert's parents raising her children in Dadeville. Veda had a large extended family, and surely her children were watched over by their many relatives and friends.

In 1919 she moved with her children to her brother George Wilson's home at Everton, to assist him after his wife had died. When he remarried she moved next door into her childhood home, which she owned the rest of her life.

After her children were grown she worked some at the state hospital at Mt. Vernon in the sewing and mailroom. In the 1940's she moved to Springfield, Missouri to live with her daughter Lucile. She was an active mother and grandmother. She had been pulling weeds in Lucile's yard, when she was found unresponsive by son George, shortly before she died.
