 Mattie Lee Morrison 

 Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:  “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” Psalm 31: 28 & 29

Oak Ridge, Louisiana is a small hamlet in extreme northeast Louisiana. This small hamlet was known, at one time, as the "white gold" capital. The residents used the "white gold" to provide for their families.  It was here that Chris Barnes and Katie Chandler brought their girl child into the world.

On Tuesday, Mar 6, 1930, Mattie made her advent into the world.  Her name, Mattie, was an indication of what her life would become. "Mistress of the house; mighty in Battle, "a gift from God." She would attend the Johnson School. She would grow up to be employed in the public industrial service. She would marry Thomas Morrison, Sr, and the mother of seven children: Thomas, Columbus, Helen, Ella, Dorothy, Mary, and baby, Linda. After retirement, her forms of relaxation included fishing, watching TV, serving, and praising God. The highlight of each year was the trip made with her family to Hot Springs, AK.

On April 30, 2021, God, in His infinite wisdom decided that it was time for His servant to come home. She leaves to cherish her memory, her wise counsel, and her beautiful smile, two sons: Thomas Morrison of Crossett, AK, and Columbus Morrison, Bastrop, LA; five daughters: Helen Morrison, Ella Jones, Dorothy Toliver of Bastrop, LA, Marie Newsome, Mer Rouge, LA, and Linda Nimmers of Bastrop, LA; one sister Doruhe Green of Milwaukee, WI, grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
