AUGUSTA – Dorothy E. McCullough Morrison, 88, formerly of Randolph, died May 27, at the Maine General Hospital Care and Rehab in Augusta.

She was born at home on Sept. 9, 1919, in Keswick Ridge, New Brunswick, Canada, the daughter of Joseph and Edith (Nicholson) McCullough. She was educated at the local schoolhouse, attended and subsequently graduated from Victoria College of Nursing in Fredericton, N.B. as a registered nurse. She was an R.N. all her life. Shortly after graduating she married Dean P. Morrison with whom she had three children and a stillborn.

“Dot” as she was known, was an RN literally all her life. At one time, the night supervisor at the old Augusta General for many years followed by becoming a cardiac specialist in the intensive care unit at Thayer Hospital in Waterville (from which she retired), and then came out of retirement and worked at AMHI in Augusta for more than 10 years.

Dot loved nature, her yard of flowers, her lawn, well manicured and well landscaped with bushes, plants and always a small garden. But her biggest attribute was her sense of humor. She was a friend to all and exemplified the Golden Rule. She also loved her pets. There were always cats around with dogs too, until later years.

She is survived by two sons, John Morrison of Pittston and Dean Morrison of Southport and Rangeley; one nephew, Aubrey McCullough of Keswick Ridge, N.B.; three grandchildren, John Morrison of Greenbush, Jeff Morrison of Barrington, N.H. and Scott Morrison of Bar Harbor; and great-grandchildren, Marylyn (Mary Jane) of Greenbush and Josh and Megan of Barrington, N.H.

She was predeceased by two brothers, Wilford and Eldon McCullough; former husband, Dean P. Morrison; daughter, Jane C. Morrison; two nephews, Frank and Phillip McCullough of Keswick Ridge, N.B.
