1928 - 2011 Obituary Condolences
Beverly Jean (Anderson) Morrow, 82, a lifetime resident of Skagit County, passed away Wednesday, April 6, 2011 at Josephine Sunset Home in Stanwood, where she spent her last year.

Jean was born in Mount Vernon December 9, 1928 to Bertha (Solseth) and Harry E Anderson.

She attended Conway Grade School and graduated from Mount Vernon High School in 1946.

On June 10, 1947 she married the love of her life, Donald Sanford Morrow of Burlington. They eloped marrying on the same day that Don's parents (John Donald Morrow and Ida Belle Sanford) celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary. This has become a family tradition having a daughter and granddaughter marry on the same date.

Jean and Don lived in Avon for 25 years where they had a chicken farm and Jean worked at the National Bank of Commerce. After the children were gone they moved to town, where she lived for the next 37 years.

Survivors include two daughters: Pam (Tony) Chilton of Longview and Janet (Mike) Barker of Edmonds; and two sons: Tom (Suzy) Morrow and Tim Morrow both of Mount Vernon; 12 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren; a brother Willard (Marlene) Anderson of Auburn and a step-sister Selma (Ed) Maynard of Arlington.

Jean was preceded in death by her husband, Don Morrow, in 1979, brother Victor Anderson in 2006 and step-sister Johanna LeBrun in 1999.

Graveside services will be Saturday, April 30, at 1 p.m. at Pleasant Ridge Cemetery.

A reception will at the home of Tom & Suzy Morrow, Mount Vernon, following graveside services.
