From c. 2011-2015, he lived at the Aegis of Redmond, a retirement facility. (See "Morris R. Jellison," Seattle Times, accessed 10/21/2016.)


His father was Lee Jellison, who worked as the Postmaster of Hobson, MT, in 1930. His mother, Helen E. Jellison (born c. 1890 in IA), managed a household of three children, Morris and his two sisters, Helen R. (born c. 1924 in MT) and Norma (born c. 05/1926). Lee and Helen married c. 1923. Lee's parents had come from ME, while Helen's were born in OH (father) and IL.
