Maxine P. Morrison

d. February 20, 2016

Maxine Pease Morrison, 98, peacefully completed her life's journey February 20, 2016 with her family by her side. Her journey began October 18, 1917 in the home of her parents, Melbourne and Frances (Goff) Pease on Elm Street in Kinsman, Ohio. In Maxine's younger years she studied piano with Elsie Milne and later studied under the Dana Brothers. She excelled playing the trumpet so much so, she played with the high school band while still in grade school. She played in the all-county select band and the girls drum and bugle corp. She attended her high school reunion each year, attending her 80th one for the Class of 1935, last spring. Later in life she played piano for Sunday school and was a Youth Leader at the Kinsman United Methodist Church, where she was a lifelong member. Among her many accomplishments, she was a Girl Scout troop leader, and started the trick or treat for UNICEF in Kinsman. For this she was appointed the honor of being a delegate to the UN in New York City for two weeks. The Cleveland Indians were her team, in good times and bad, even staying up past midnight to see the last inning. During the winter months she loved watching college basketball, remembering stats and players names and having a great dislike for Duke. Maxine was adventurous and loved to travel. Among her adventures, she traveled to Alaska where she flew over the North Pole in a mail plane. Her travels took her to Canada, Mexico, the Holy Land, Switzerland, and many U.S. states. She rode in a hot air balloon, and flew in a helicopter into the Grand Canyon. She even went whale watching. She was a great cookie baker, keeping her grandchildren well supplied. Maxine tried daily to keep abreast of family news, as her family was her passion. She was an avid reader and enjoyed crossword puzzles and TV Sports. Maxine's feisty attitude enabled her to live independently on her farm in Kinsman, enjoying her flowers, and watching the birds and wildlife. She married Philip Morrison on July 30, 1938, in Cleveland, Ohio. She was preceded in death by her parents, Melbourne and Frances Pease, her husband Philip, brother Gordon L. Pease, and sons-in-law Harvey Brown and Andy Williams. Maxine is survived by four daughters, Roberta A. Brown of Ashtabula, OH, Kathleen M. Brown of Baltimore, MD, Elizabeth E.
