    So loved this precious lady. We lived next door or across the street from the time I was born till I moved out on my own. She was a kind, loving soul. Always a dear friend to my family. Thank you Mrs Morelle for being a part of my life.

    Worked with Mrs. Morelle for a number of years at Lincoln County Bank. She was a true lady, a mother figure to me, and a dear friend for life. She will always be present in my memories.

    My heart is just broken. I moved into her neighborhood and went to visit and talk with her often. In just the short time knowing her, she became like a grandmother to me. Prayers for family and to know that she is in heaven with her husband and son is such a wonderful feeling. I just hate that I never got to say goodbye and unable to attend services. Love to you Mrs. Eley! -Mac

    I loved Morelle Eley. She was a true friend and I will miss her. Larry, her son, was a classmate of mine so she and I had many sweet, special reminisces of him. Now she is rejoicing with him in heaven. What great memories she leaves all of us who loved and respected her.
