On August 20, 1966, Babs married the love of her life, Harold “Huck” Morris. Babs and Huck spent 31 wonderful years together raising their three children before Huck’s passing in 1997. To know Babs was to love her. When visiting her home, one would always find a warm cup of coffee, and ear to listen, and great conversation. She had a heart that touched everyone she met.
Babs was a member of the Tuesday C Bowling League (May’s Insurance) at Terrace Lanes Bowling Center, a member of the Troy Borough Election Board for 40 years and the Troy Borough Municipal Authority. She was also a member of the Bradford County Heritage Association, volunteering at the Troy Farm Museum, and was a life member of The Wheel Inn, Inc. She was a member of St. John’s Catholic Church and the St. John’s Altar & Rosary Society. Babs also enjoyed reading, crossword puzzles, bird-watching, playing cards with family and friends, and loved her Saturday morning breakfast crew.
