Gleva Lee Morisette, daughter of Julius and Lela (Wunderlich) Frahm, was born on March 7, 1932 in Mortz County, South Dakota. She graduated from Lynd High School in 1950. She married Rolland Morisette on August 28, 1950 at St. Clotilde Church in Green Valley, MN. They lived and farmed north of Marshall, MN. They had 5 sons, Tim (Sandy) of Northfield, Dave (Jean) of Oakdale, Paul (Pam) of Center Point, IA, Dan (Kari) of Ghent, and Mike (Helen) of Nashville, TN. She was blessed with 8 grandchildren, Ben (Danielle), Tasha (Ben), Caleb (Sam), Ryan, Troy, Kayla, Ethan and Gemma; and 6 great-grandchildren, Shania, Zachary, Natalie, Lucas, Emma and Abraham.

Glee loved the Lord and had a deep devotion to the Eucharist. It was a common scene to find her at the kitchen table with a cup of tea and an open bible, poring over God’s word. She taught catechism and inspired many through her example and her love of God.

Her family was a source of great joy in her life. She loved family get-togethers, eagerly looking forward to them weeks in advance. Even during her last weeks of life, visits from her family brought a huge smile and a spark of energy. She enjoyed taking her grandkids camping, playing cards, family reunions and her biannual houseboat trips in northern Minnesota. Before her husband’s death, she and Rolland liked traveling in their motorhome.

Glee loved talking with others; she was a storyteller as well as a listener. She had a gift with the youth, and in her younger years while her children were teens, their friends frequented the family home and often stayed up into the night with her talking and sharing stories.

In addition to her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, Glee is survived by her sister Jean Lind and many nieces and nephews. Glee was preceded in death by her husband, Rolland in 1990, her parents, brothers Gaylord, LeRoy and Howard, her sisters Joyce, Donna, Eve and Colleen as well as all sister and brother-in-laws.

Memorials are preferred to Northfield Women’s Center, Northfield Retirement Center, or the Church of St. Dominic, Northfield.
