FOR OUR MOTHER, GRANDMOTHER & GUARDIAN ANGEL
I would like to take this time to share a special moment with you. We have dedicated this page to our mother Mary Elizabeth Johnson Morrissey. Mom was
a lady of many values. She cared and loved everyone, always putting others before herself.
Mom was born December 6, 1915 in Cordova, Rock Island, Illinois and died April 29,1997 in Clinton,
Clinton, Iowa. She married May 27, 1936 in Geneseo, Henry, Illinois to Michael William Morrissey b. April 04,
1913 Geneseo, Henry, Illinois d. July 21, 1972 Morrison, Whiteside, Illinois. Together they had 16
children, and what a gathering this was on the holidays. Mom would set at the end of the large table
in the kitchen and smile as she watched her children, grand children and great grand children. There will always be a special
place in our hearts for mom as she was one of a kind. She knew nothing bad of anyone, always helping in
any way she could.
There were three special moments in her service that I would like to share with you. One was when our
younger sister Cindy (who is a triplet) shared some of moms most favorite memories she had of each of her 16
children. This was a hard time for us all and yet Cindy should be praised for holding her composure the way she did. Cindy, no one could have said or done it better. We love you for it. Mom loved the Guardian Angel, which brings me to my second special moment. She had 54 grandchildren and 40 great grand children. Each of her children and grand children, at the close of her service, placed a Guardian Angel with their birthstone onto a pillow which was laid with her. And last, our nephew David and his wife sang the song "Wind Beneath Your Wings". The song which is playing in the background was truly meant for our mother. Mom we will always love and miss you, and would like you to always know that you are, “The Wind Beneath Our Wings”
