DEATH OF MRS. S. O. MORROW
PROMINENT PIONEER WOMAN SUCCUMBS AT 90
Funeral Services for Mother of Milling and Lumber Firm Heads Will Be Tomorrow
Mrs. Ida Ella Morrow, 90, widow of S. O. Morrow, Carthage lumber and milling company owner for many years, passed away at 9:25 o'clock last night at her home, 1002 Howard street.
Since suffering a fractured hip in a fall in her home July 5, 1945 Mrs. Morrow had been a semi-invalid. Several weeks ago her condition became serious and during that time she had been confined to her bed.
A native of New Lexington, Ohio where she was born July 27, 1856 Mrs. Morrow's parents, David and Nancy Woodmansee, came to Carthage when she was 16 years old. She attended the schools here and taught for a short time in Jasper county schools.
On November 11, 1880 she was married to Samuel O. Morrow and for a time they made their home in Springfield. Upon their returned to Carthage, Mr. Morrow entered the milling business and later became a lumberman. He was head of both the Morrow Milling Company and the Morrow Lumber Company at the time of his death, August 13, 1934. His three sons now own and operate the two enterprises.
Mrs. Morrow long had been a member of the First Methodist church and until recent years had taken a prominent part in its organizations, including the Woman's Society of Christian Service and the Women's Bible class. For a number of years she was head of the home department of the church.
She also was a member of the S.S. Club and of Scholae Amicae, the latter society composed of early day classmates in the Carthage High School.
Mrs. Morrow observed her 90th birthday last July 27 at a dinner party given in her honor at the home of a son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Morrow, on Grand Avenue. Her three sons and their families were present. Her only brother, Judge D. D. Woodmansee, of Cincinnati, Ohio was here for a recent visit with Mrs. Morrow. He left Tuesday to return to his home.
Surviving are the three sons, S. R. Morrow and Homer Morrow of the Morrow Milling company, and W. T. Morrow of the Morrow Milling Company, and W. T. Morrow of the Morrow Lumber Company; the brother, Judge Woodmansee; four grandchildren, Samuel R., Jr., Joseph M., Thomas H., and William T., Jr., all of Carthage, and several nieces and nephews, all of whom live in the east with the exception of Oscar Harrison, who for a number of years has made his home with Mrs. Morrow.
Funeral services will be held at 4:30 o'clock tomorrow afternoon at the Knell service home. The Rev. R. H. Bodine, pastor of the First Methodist church, and the Rev. Dr. W. G. Clinton will be in charge. Burial will be in Park Cemetery.
