Meredith Trow “MT” Morrison, 102, died Tuesday, March 25, 2014, in Albert Lea, where he resided his entire life. MT was born to Charles and Viola (Trow) Morrison on June 6, 1911. He was married to his beloved June Peterson Morrison, now deceased, for 67 years.
June and MT had three sons, John (Susan), Michael (Stacy), and Toby (Lynda). MT was blessed with seven grandchildren, John Jr., Julie, Jeanne, Mary, Paul, Andrew and Sara; and 16 grandchildren, Megan, Matthew, Katie, David, Merritt, Sam, Jillian, Tanner, Bayley, Sophie, Jack and Teddy, Alexa, Connor, Annika and Carina.
He is also survived by two brothers, Bob (Bernice) and Bill (Pearl).
MT was devoted to his family and always managed to remember everyone’s birthdays with a $5 bill included. MT kept track of all the kids and was so proud when we all gathered for his 100th birthday!
We are all blessed with cherished memories. We will all miss his amazing spirit, his cribbage games, his stories, his smile and his laughter.
A special thank you to his caregiver, Sylvia, for her kindness and care the past 10 years.
A service is planned for a future date. Memorials may be sent to Christ Episcopal Church, 204 W. Fountain St. in Albert Lea.
In addition to his family, MT had a deep love for his church. He was proud of his service to Christ Episcopal Church over 75 years as a trustee. All of us will dearly miss MT’s grace whenever we gathered.
“O Lord, support us all day long until the shadows lengthen, and the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over and our work is done. Then in thy mercy grant us a safe lodging, a holy rest, and peace at last. Amen.”
