Tennis Morris and Wife Mourn Daughter

Funeral services for little Donna Lucille Morris, who passed away in the Parker hospital at Allerton, following an appendicitis operation, were held from the family home near Harvard, Thursday afternoon Sept. 27. The services were conducted by the Rev. J. B. Johnson, pastor of the Methodist Church at Corydon. Burial was in the Harvard cemetery. The following is the obituary that was read at the service:

Donna Lucille, daughter of Tennis and Alma Morris, was born near Harvard, Iowa, December 4, 1928, and departed this life in the Parker hospital at Allerton, Iowa, September 25, 1934, at the age of 5 years, 9 months and 21 days. Little Donna was a loving child and bore her pain with great patience at all times. Her short stay here on earth was full of suffering, but she was never too ill to give a smile to one who tried to comfort her even until a few minutes before she passed away. Near the end she smiled at her father and mother and told them 'good-night.' Her last hours were spent in 'little-girl' fashion, asking about her loved ones and speaking the names of her schoolmates and other little friends.

Her going leaves a vacant chair in the home and a place In the hearts of all who knew her, which the Comforter must heal, All that helping hands could do was done to save the little one but God knew best and called her to a home where suffering and sorrow are unknown. She leaves to mourn the parting, her father and mother, brother Harold, seven years of age, two grandfathers and grandmothers, Mr. and Mrs. Harley Morris and Mr. and Mrs. Sam Homer and a great grandfather, Valentine Morris and other relatives and a host of friends.

Our loving child, we'll miss you,
Your smiles and your tears
Your stay was pleasant, though
the years were few,
God bless you, little one, and
no fears
