Life Story / Obituary


Blanca E. Morrow, 84, was reunited with her husband in heaven, on Friday, March 31, 2023. Blanca was born in Nueva Rosita, Coahuila, Mexico on January 1, 1939, the daughter of the late Hermenegildo and Aurora (nee: Trevino) Villarreal. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, friend and neighbor. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

Blanca was employed by Western Publishing for 38 years, retiring in 1999. It was there she met her best friend and husband of 32 years, John Morrow. They married February 1, 1984, and they were inseparable. Blanca described her time with John as the best time of her life. They looked forward to their daily walks in their neighborhood of 38 years which was filled with friendly hellos between neighbors and friends. Blanca taught herself to sew, knit and crochet. She would knit kids hats & scarves all year and donate them before it got cold. If a baby was on the way, they were blessed with a blanket handmade with love from Blanca. She loved cooking and baking for family and friends; and her family and friends loved her cooking! Donald Duck was one of her most favorite things. She has hundreds of stuffed animals and figurines.

Surviving is her daughter, Rose (Tim) Divan, of Delavan, WI; four grandchildren, April Bosworth, of Wyalusing, WI, Andy (Hannah Romero) Bosworth, of Delavan, Jasmine Trevino, and Jeremiah Vallin, both of Racine; five great grandchildren, Camrin, Bianca, Avery, Julius, and Emiliano; and brother, Bob Villarreal, of Albuquerque, NM. Her nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends, also survive her. In addition to her parents, Blanca was preceded in death by her husband, John Morrow, daughter, Blanca Azucena “Sue” Gonzales, and five sisters, Olga, Armie, Aurora, Rose, Mary Lou, and brother Chema.

Relatives and friends are welcome to meet at the Southern Wisconsin Veterans Memorial Cemetery, town of Dover, 11:00 AM, Thursday, April 27, 2023.

At last, Blanca & John are together again.
