September 11, 1928 - April 27, 2021
Nancy Louise Morris of Interlochen, MI, died Tuesday, April 27, 2021, unexpectedly, at her home. Nancy was born on September 11,1928 in Findlay, OH, the daughter of E.W. and Olive McCall. In 1950 she graduated from Muskingum University, with a major in Home Economics, and wedded the man she met 2 years earlier in the college bookstore who, on that occasion, said “you are just the kind of girl I am looking to marry”…. her first marriage proposal. She replied “it’s a little sudden, I’m going to need some time ….Paul looked at his watch and said “How much?” They cherished their 70+ years together, and raised six children for whom she was a loving mother, teacher and moral center. Nancy was awarded Homemaker of the Year in 1964, and was honored with a trip to Chicago, transported via her first plane trip. She excelled in all things homemaking, including cooking, baking and sewing. Family, community, church dinners and Paul’s business colleagues and clients all benefited from Nancy’s accomplished hostessing skills, highlighted by her cooking and baking expertise. She was active and served in officer positions in the various churches in which Paul and Nancy were Members, she sang in several church choirs and was a founding member of the PEO Chapter EV. She taught Home Economics in her early married years and later served as a teacher for homebound students within the Columbus School District. Nancy was an avid reader. She supported Friends of Interlochen Library in their efforts that lead, in 2019, to the library’s new facility. She and Paul also widely traveled — family camping trips from coast to coast; a family visit in Italy, tour guides for Muskingum alumni trip to Scandinavia and Russia, a Scotland rotary trip, as well as retirement venues from Gulf Shores to Copper Harbor. Nancy is remembered for her magical smile, positive outlook, friend to all and never-ending love of family.
