Dear Eldonna Morss Steffen -
So sorry to learn of Eldonna's death. Eldonna is #4 of the 26 first cousins in our Family Line to pass.
Eldonna was always such a happy person - loved to chat - and always included when we cousins were able to get together like MORSS family reunions.
She worked hard, and had enjoyed playing her father's banjo until lost in fire. Hoping she was able to replace and enjoy her music - as she truly inherited the MUSIC GENE from the cousin Line which missed me. I hoped to be at Morss Reunion 2015 but Paul's health issues prevented. I will be there in spirit with you all as you say goodby to our dear cousin.. Thoughts and prayers to family and friends on Friday.

Sad and unexpected news. Hard working, faithful to God and church, compassionate with others in their needs, using her talents for God and those around her. I remember her playing the mandolin in church and always being there for Bible Study, Worship Service or work bee. May God comfort the family and church family and may our reunion be soon. Sincere condolences.
