While growing up in Duquesne, Iola took piano lessons from Nancy Doggett and later served as a pianist for the Payne Chapel Sunday School, the Junior Choir, and the Gospel Chorus.  She was also active in the Missionary YPD and subsequently the Women’s Missionary Society (WMS).  At Ebenezer, she was the church musician, a stewardess, a WMS leader, and an official board member for more than 25 years.

She and her daughter Mary Ann were loyal and active members of the Ebenezer Lay Organization.

Mrs. Morris was all about church, family, and community.  She worked for many years in the finance division of Pennsylvania State University.  Upon retirement from the University, she spent years in multiple capacities assisting the directors of the Duboise Carter Funeral Home, Thelma Gooden Funeral Home, and the Gooden Brown Funeral Home.

In 2009, Mrs. Morris moved her residence back to Duquesne and her church membership back to Payne Chapel.  She initiated the Duquesne Summit Senior Residence Bible Study and personally recruited Rev. Sam Chambers as the Bible Study teacher, a study group that continues to thrive today.  She also continued her support as a stewardess emeritus and a WMS emeritus at Payne Chapel.
