The Payette Independent
Thursday, March 20, 1924

Zola Morris, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. W. Morris was born at Olson, Wyoming, February 10th, 1907, and departed this life at the Holy Rosary Hospital at Ontario, Friday morning - March 14, 1924. Death claimed her of the early age of 17 years, 1 month and 4 days. She died a few hours after an operation for appendicitis, with which she was stricken while suffering from the measles.

She is mourned by her parents, one brother, Ora, of Payette, five uncles and one aunt.

Zola Morris was junior in high school and a member of the Girls' glee club. Though her residence in Payette was brief she had made a warm place for herself in the hearts of her school mates, and the sad news of her death cast a deep gloom over the high school. The many beautiful floral offerings were a mute testimony in the love and esteem felt for Zola by her many friends.

The funeral was conducted from the Baptist church at two-thirty Monday afternoon, the Rev. Hawes officiating. Beautiful music was offered as a last loving tribute to their departed friend by the Boys' and Girls' glee club of the high school. Interment was made in Riverside cemetery. The hearts of all are with Mr. and Mrs. Morris in their bereavement.


We wish to thank all where by their kind thoughtfulness helped us during the illness and death of our beloved Zola, as well as for the many beautiful floral offerings. MR. and MRS. E. W. MORRIS, ORA MORRIS
