Alice Elvira Morris, oldest daughter of Edmund and Martha Hubbard Morris, was born near Preemption, February 25, 1874, and departed from this life March 1, 1922. She has always lived in and around the Viola community, receiving her early education from the Viola high school, after which she taught school for a number of years. Later she graduated from the Western Illinois Normal School at Macomb. From there she attended the University of Illinois at Urbana receiving her Bachelor of Arts and Master of Science degrees. Since then she has held the principalship at Matherville and Viola highs schools, holding a State Supervisory certificate. In all she has spent twenty years of active teaching into which she put all her heart and thoughts, never limiting her interests in this, her life work. She enjoyed good health until about two years ago when she contracted the influenza, which left her in a weakened condition, from which she never fully recovered. She was a member of the United Presbyterian church of Viola, although she attended other churches wherever her school duties called her. She leaves to mourn her departure her mother, Mrs. Martha Morris, two sisters, Mrs. Maud Beard of Viola, and Mrs. Florence McCaw of Preemption; three brothers, John of Aledo, Robert of Viola and Fred at home, besides many other relatives and a host of friends.

The funeral services were held Thursday at 2 p. m. from the United Presbyterian church of Viola, and were under the direction of her pastor, A. S. Bailey. The pall bearers were six cousins of the deceased. Interment was in the family lot in the Viola cemetery.
