Obituary of Marta Consuelo Morrison

A native of Santa Tecla, El Salvador, Marta was born May 18, 1935. She was the daughter of the late Consuelo Estaben and Raúl Góchez. An intelligent and independent woman, Marta made a courageous decision to come to the United States to complete her higher education. She attended one year at the American University in Washington, D.C., and two years at D’Youville woman’s college in Buffalo, New York. It was at a Niagara University dance where she met her future husband Harold “Sonny” Morrison. After a two-year separation while Sonny served in the US Army they were reunited and married at St. Joseph’s church in Greenwich, NY, in 1957. Together they had four children. Marta always created a circle of friends wherever she made a home from Albany, NY to Puerto Rico, and for 34 years in Racine, WI. Marta and Harold retired to an active adult community in Poinciana, FL. There she enjoyed hours of playing Mah Jong, gardening, and discovering new restaurants and shops with friends. Marta deeply loved her family and enriched the lives of all who knew her. Her spirit and smile were contagious and memorable. She was a devout Catholic, her faith provided much strength, belief, and a light that burned bright. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by two sons, Harold and Gary Morrison, two brothers, and a sister in law Raúl (Ana Maria) and Mauricio Góchez. Survivors include her children; Ronald (Therese) and Jo-Ann Morrison; grandchildren, Melinda (Stephen) Wilson and John (Kim) Morrison; and great grandchildren, Sienna and James Wilson. Due to COVID-19 restrictions services for Marta will be held privately for only immediate family on Monday, April 13, 2020, followed by her burial in the St. Joseph’s Cemetery next to her husband.
