Lutitia Stoner Morrison, 1870-1934

Centerville Daily Iowegian and Citizen
19 November 1934
  Mrs. B. A. Morrison, formerly Lutitia Stoner, daughter of Noah and Catherine Stoner, was born May 24, 1870, at Jerome, Iowa.
  She was married to Andrew Berton Morrison Sept. 9, 1900, at Mystic, Iowa.  They established a home one mile west of Jerome within a mile of where she was born and there the rest of her life was spent.  Two daughters, Mary Catherine and Ida Rachel, were born to this union.
  Mrs. Morrison became a member of the Jerome M.E. church in 1900 and was always a willing helper in its work. She has been a kind and loving mother, companion, and friend.  She was patient in her suffering, trusting always in the goodness of the Lord.  She spoke many times of her readiness to pass on into His immediate presence at His will.  After two patient years the call came and she slipped quietly away with the family and a friend at her bedside, Nov. 11, 1934, at the age of 64 years 5 mos., 18 days.
  She is survived by her husband, two daughters, Mrs. Frank D. Jones of Ottumwa and Mrs. Geo. Mincks of Jerome, two grandsons, Richard and William Mincks, three sisters, Miss Nettie Stoner, Mrs. G. B. VanDoren, both of near Seymour, and Mrs. John McElvain of near Numa.
  The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away; Blessed be the name of the Lord.
  Funeral services were held at two o’clock Tuesday afternoon at the Jerome M. E. church conducted by the Rev. J. C. Bruvold.  Burial was made in the Jerome cemetery.
