Obituary: Elizabeth Mae Richmond Morrison (March 7, 1926 - Sept. 23, 2013)

Elizabeth Mae Morrison
Heaven gained another Angel September 23, 2013.

It is with great sadness that we lay to rest Elizabeth Mae Morrison of Smith River. She was born on March 7, 1926, in Des Moines, Iowa, to Harry Martin Richmond and Lucile Deakin. Elizabeth moved to Smith River in 1946, shortly after marrying Floyd Arthur Morrison on Dec. 30, 1945. They lived a happy life raising their two boys, Dale Richmond Morrison and Gary Leonard Morrison, on Floyd’s family’s land off of Fred Haight Drive. Elizabeth was a loving mother and active as a Cub Scout leader. She was also heavily active in the United Methodist Church of Smith River. Elizabeth worked for the Del Norte County School District for 22 years as the school secretary for Redwood Elementary, Lake Earl Elementary and finally at the Smith River School until her retirement in 1983. Once retired, Elizabeth greatly enjoyed spending time with family and traveling throughout the United States. Those lucky enough to have known Elizabeth would describe her as a devoted wife of 67 years, a guiding mother, loving sister, affectionate aunt, loyal friend, and doting grandmother of sixteen. To Elizabeth, once she met you, you were considered part of her family.

Obituary: Ellen Virginia Filler (March 20, 1932 – Sept. 13, 2013)

Ellen was a vital person at 81 years of age. To speak with her, you would not think that she was that age.

Ellen was employed with the Del Norte County Sheriff’s Office from 1970–1990 and retired with the rank of Sergeant. Ellen loved her job at the SO to the very end of her life. She pioneered the way for women in Del Norte County law enforcement. Ellen was the first female patrol officer for the Del Norte County Sheriff’s Office. Her strength was impressive as she performed a job that had been typically male-oriented. Also impressive was the support that she received from the other personnel of the Del Norte County Sheriff’s Office, Crescent City Police, California Highway Patrol and other law enforcement agencies. She made many lifelong friends.

Obituary: Lois Marie Stanley Parks Poole (Aug. 26, 1923 – Sept. 21, 2013)

Lois Marie Stanley Parks Poole
Lois Marie Stanley Parks Poole, aged 90, died peacefully on Sept. 21, 2013. Lois was born Aug. 26, 1923, in Alex, Okla. She was the first-born daughter of Marcus L. and Edna Stanley. She was the oldest of five children. 

At the age of 14, Lois and her family moved to Tulare, Calif. She attended Laurel and Buena Vista Elementary schools and graduated from Tulare Union High School in 1942. 

In 1942, she married Orvel Parks in Yuma, Ariz. After their wedding, they lived in San Diego, where they welcomed the birth of their first child, Winona J. Parks Carson, in 1943. They later moved to Richmond, Calif., and eventually settled in Tulare. Their second child, Larry D. Parks, was born in 1946. Orvel passed away in 1965.

Lois married Elmer G. Poole on Sept. 4, 1968, in Reno, Nev. She welcomed his daughter, Lavon Poole Coker, into her heart and family. They lived in Crescent City for 35 years before returning to Tulare in 2003. Elmer passed away in 2004. Their 36-year marriage included domestic and international travel, dancing the jitterbug, visiting extended family and friends, and hosting many at their home for dinner parties and holiday celebrations. 

Lois thoroughly enjoyed, and was well known for, her cooking. She owned two family friendly restaurants over the years — The Beachcomber of Crescent City and The Snack Shack located near Gasquet. Several of her grandchildren spent summers or vacations “working” at her restaurants and just as many probably should have been “fired.”

Fortunately, she was not only a wonderful grandmother, but was also a very forgiving “boss.”
