Russell Morris

Russell L. Morris, 92, passed away Saturday, July 5, 2014, into the waiting arms of his beloved wife Martha and son Roger.

He farmed all of his life and worked at LCN for 20 years.

He leaves behind his daughter, Patsy Wooden; his grandchildren, Donald and Ronald Wooden of Princeton, Lonnie Wooden of Tiskilwa, Melanie Watness and Michelle Rivera of Washington state, and their families; and his brother, Blake Morris of Dover.

His only regret in life was not being able to play on the floor with his great-grandkids these past seven years. He was much loved and respected by all.

There will be no memorial services. Arrangements are through the Fiocchi-Jensen Funeral Home, Princeton.

Memorials may be directed to Elks Kid Care of Princeton.
