Obituary for Eldon Morey

Eldon LeRoy Morey of Motley died on November 18, 2020. He was born on August 15, 1937, to Edward and Mary Morey. Motley was his boyhood home and he graduated from Motley High School in 1955. He obtained degrees from Hamline University, St. Cloud State College, and the University of South Dakota. He served in the United States Navy in active duty for three years, and over twenty-eight years in the reserves.
His work included a successful clinical psychology service at the Mower County Mental Health Center in Austin, Minnesota, and the Lakeland Mental Health Center in Fergus Falls, Minnesota. Eventually, he left the Mental Health Center, and continued his profession in private practice.
He married Karen Leah Nicol, whom he met while they were both studying at Hamline University, on December 31, 1961. He valued hard work and honesty. He was an avid outdoorsman, and shared that with his children and grandchildren. He was never afraid to stand up for what he thought was right. He loved to learn new things.
He is survived by his wife, Karen; his son, Kevin, and wife Debra, and their two sons, Joseph and Michael; his daughter, Janet, her husband Samuel Hennies, and their two children, Jack and Brook; brother, Loren Morey, and his wife Kathy, as well as their children and families.
Eldon always considered Motley his home. He and Karen spent their final years together overlooking the Crow Wing River.
The family wishes to thank the caregivers and staff of Edgewood Brainerd and St. Croix Hospice for the kindness they showed Eldon. We are grateful for their care.
A private ceremony is planned Saturday, November 21, 2020 with Pastor Jim Johnson officiating. Halvorson-Taylor Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements.

Our love and prayers are with your family! We love the picture as it shows his beautiful smile that we saw so often when we would visit. Eldon seemed to enjoy family gatherings, and we remember the fun, carefully selected gifts, he would find for Jack and complement Karen’s perfectly sewn gifts! He will be missed but remembered!!!!
