Elizabeth Ann Schupay Morrison

February 9, 1926 - April 27, 2020

ELIZABETH ANN MORRISON, “BETTY,” (Age 94), passed away on Monday, April 27, 2020 at her home in Ashburn, VA. She was born in Monaca, PA on February 9, 1926 and graduated from Monaca High School in 1944. She went to the Mercy School of Nursing in Pittsburgh, PA and joined the Cadet Nurse Corps. She graduated in September 1947 becoming a Registered Nurse working at Mercy Hospital. She married James F. Morrison on September 6, 1948.

Betty followed Jim eventually settling in Alexandria, VA in 1967. She resumed her nursing career at Alexandria Hospital in 1968 where she worked for 20+ years until she retired. During these years she fought and survived breast cancer. Betty lived for travel and always had a bag packed, ready to depart for the next adventure. She eventually saw much of the world—Asia, Iran, former Soviet Bloc countries, Egypt, Israel, Argentina and nearly all of Europe. But always, closest to her heart, was Ireland—anywhere in Ireland. She was a volunteer at George Washington’s Mount Vernon and loved zipping around in her 280Z, always on the go.
