Adeline was born September 14th, 1926 to John A. and Clara (Rusten) Hanson of rural Osnabrock, ND. Adeline graduated from Langdon High School in 1944 and attended Valley City State Teacher’s College for a couple of summers, then taught at various country schools in Cavalier and Pembina Counties from 1944 through 1952.
Adeline and Alwin Morrison were married June 6, 1953, at North Dovre Lutheran Church near Osnabrock, and lived and farmed in the Neche and Bathgate, ND area. Adeline spent many summer hours tending the yard, flower gardens and a garden which included strawberries and raspberries.
They moved to Cavalier, ND in 2001, and Alwin passed away in 2003.
Paintings (oil and watercolor) became a wonderful hobby, and that evolved into china painting – which she enjoyed for many years. Quilting, reading, and scrapbooking are other activities she enjoyed. Adeline was an active member of the Neche American Legion Auxiliary, the Walhalla Brush Brunch, and Bathgate Presbyterian Women.
Adeline played piano and organ for the Bathgate Presbyterian Church for many years. She enjoyed writing letters - and liked to keep in touch with family and friends, including corresponding with her pen-pal Else in Denmark for over 70 years.
Adeline is survived by her children: Valerie Morrison, Bloomington, MN; Virginia Morrison, Fargo, ND; Sandra (Fred) Marquardt, Cavalier, ND; Bruce (Marni) Morrison, Fargo, ND. Grandchildren: Danielle (Kevin) Erdmann, Mitchell, SD; Jared (Annie) Marquardt, Grafton, ND. Great-grandchildren: Gabrielle Erdmann, Ian Erdmann, Graham Marquardt, Vera Marquardt.
