Gwynna Marie Morris
Born September 23, 1946, Gwynna was raised in Smith River with her six sisters and brother; she graduated from Del Norte High in 1964. During after-school hours, she worked in the family store where she no doubt gained a love of business. At Humboldt State University, Gwynna met her future husband David Morris, who was also a business major and they were married in November 1971. She graduated from HSU in 1973, earned her teacher's credential in 1974, and shortly after she and David moved to Fortuna.
