Mary Evelyn (Lacy) Morehouse was born in Adams County, Iowa on April 18, 1937, the daughter of Christopher Leroy and Margaret Florence (Meeks) Lacy. During her childhood, Mary attended Corning Public Schools and received her GED later, in 1954. A year later, on May 28, 1955, Mary was united in marriage to Floyd Neal Morehouse at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Corning. Neal and Mary were blessed with two children: Rick and Christina.
Mary worked for more than 20 years for the Home Bakery in Corning, but mostly thought of herself as a Homemaker. She loved caring for her family and was especially fond of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Mary was an avid gardener and canned everything she grew. Feeding and watching her Hummingbirds was a favorite past time, as well as Crocheting when she was able.
Preceding Mary in death was her husband, Neal in 2010; her daughter, Christina Dimmler in 2015; a great-grandson, Ricky Morehouse III; her parents; a sister, Marie; two brothers: Eldon and Bill and her beloved dog, Ollie.
Mary is survived by her son, Rick (wife Maggie) Morehouse, Sr. of Cumberland, Iowa; five grandchildren: Joleen (Damien) Most of Corning, Jamie (Jason) McManis of Corning, Jackie Stacy of Corning, Ricky (Robin) Morehouse, Jr. of Persia, Iowa and Corinna Morehouse of Prescott, Iowa; 11 great-grandchildren; 5 step grandchildren; 4 step great-grandchildren and her son-in-law, Larry Shaw of Corning.
