Phyllis Morrow

Phyllis Morrow (Crossman) 94, went to be with the Lord on Saturday, January 23, 2021, with her granddaughter, Missy at her side. She was born on August 22,1926 to Edwin and Leila (Sears) Crossman in Neopit, Wisconsin. To support the war effort, she rode daily with her father to the Shipyards in Sturgeon Bay and she was a “Rosie the Riviter”.

On April 7, 1945 she married Lawrence Morrow at Annunciation Catholic Church, Green Bay, Wisconsin and together they raised ten children. Phyllis worked at Larsen’s Canning, the Valley Motel in Green Bay and Baker Boy, Green Bay.

She was an excellent seamstress and loved to crochet. And she could make a meal out of nothing and her meals were like wedding feasts. The smells coming from her kitchen were great memories for her children. Fresh bread, applesauce, and soups often filled the air.

She is survived by her children; Sharon Fischer, Larry (Donna) Morrow, Judy (Bob) Lamine, David (Jackie) Morrow, Mark Morrow, Kris (John) Thompson, Kelly (Rex) Grzelak, Paul (Shelly) Morrow, and Bob (Marlene) Morrow and a daughter-in-law, Theresa Morrow, 32 grandchildren; 52 great grandchildren; and 34 great great grandchildren. She is further survived by her sisters; Marcella Hultman and Marie Pionteck.

Phyllis was preceded in death by her parents, husband of 52 years, son, Mike, son-in-law, Jerry Fischer, a grandson, Stephen Lawrence, great grandchildren; Jordan, Curtis, and Bun, and brothers; Howard (Gene), and George Crossman and numerous in-laws.

The family would like to extend a thank you to Phyllis’ caregivers at Meadowbrook Nursing home and St Mary’s hospital.

Visitation: Saturday, January 30, 2021, at 9am – 11am at St Anthony’s Catholic Church, Oconto Falls. A funeral mass celebrating Phyllis’ life at 11am. Kuehl Funeral Home of Gillett is assisting the family.

    I love you grandma. Yes we will miss all the meals we had by you for Mother’s Day and Thanksgiving. You truly could make the best meals. I was your helper in the kitchen. You have us so many good memories. Watching football playing cards many more. I remember you telling at grandpa to take his boots off from being out in the barn. I love you. Rest in Peace. Love your granddaughter Jane Fischer
