      Obituary:

      Elisabeth Post Morrow 1896 - 1992
      by Dorothy Jones and Faith McCutcheon

      Elisabeth Post Morrow, quiet philanthropist and generous supporter of our community, died at her home on February 26th, after a long illness.

      She was born in Brooklyn in 1896, graduated from Packer Collegiate Institute, married Thomas Irwin Morrow in 1920, had one daughter, Elisabeth, and spent much of her life in Brookhaven.

      Mr. and Mrs. Morrow were both genuinely interested in everything to do with Brookhaven and its environs and were staunch generous supporters of all the local institutions. Elisabeth was especially interested in the Brookhaven Free Library whose site and building were donate by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. James H. Post, and which has always been the recipient of her generous support.

      Mrs. Morrow was a charter member of the Fireplace Literary Club and the Bellport-Brookhaven Historical society as well as a Trustee of the Packer Institute in Brooklyn. She had many other interests,including music (especially opera), books and printing, birds, and local natural areas. Before braille was done by machine, Elisabeth copied books in braille for the blind.

      Brookhaven has lost one of its outstanding public-spirited citizens, whose memory will live on through her many contributions to the well-being of the community and the Post-Morrow Foundation, established to preserve the rural atmosphere of our locality.

      Thanks to Dorothy Jones and Faith McCutcheon for writing this article.
