Sept. 8, 1905 – Feb. 7, 2008
Kathern Morrow passed away Feb. 7, 2008, at her residence at Cooney Convalescent Home in Helena.

Kathern was born Kathern Elmer, the daughter of Uriah and Elizabeth Elmer, on Sept. 8, 1905. The youngest of six children, she was born in Pleasant Valley, Montana, south of Whitehall. Kathern spent her grade school and high school years in Whitehall. After graduating from high school in 1924, she attended Dillon Western College, where she earned a temporary teaching certificate. She continued her education at Dillon and continued teaching.

Her 41-year marriage to Frank Morrow began in 1927. Two sons and one daughter were born from their marriage; LeRoy, Theodore and Darlene.

Kathern is preceded in death by her father and mother, Uriah and Elizabeth Elmer; her husband, Frank; her son, LeRoy; her daughter, Darlene; as well as sisters: Myrtle Davis, Ella Markel, Blanche Dames, Marie Warner and Gladys Urion.

She is survived by her son, Theodore (wife Merenna), of Sedona, Ariz., and Columbus, Mont.; two grandchildren, Tim Morrow of Columbus, Mont., and Scottsdale, Ariz., and Greg Morrow (wife Pauli); and one great grandson, Colton of Kirkland, Wash.

The family is grateful for the wonderful living conditions she maintained while living at Cooney Convalescent Home in Helena. The management and staff were gracious and helpful to her at all times.

A private memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to a favorite charity.
