Mother’s Day, Siettende Mai (Norwegian Constitution Day) and the 110th anniversary of the 1912 Katmai eruption are just around the calendrical corner and Mary Morris, who died recently, brings these important days together. Mary was a beloved friend, mother and grandmother — the kind of person that was the impetus for Mother’s Day. She had a motherly concern for those even outside of her family circle. 

She was “always a lady, very polite,” said friend Cherie Stover Biddle. “She had a very strong connection with her faith.”
