Mother*Ella Mary MORRIS b. 1875, d. 1973
Morris Morell MACDONALD
(1903-1980)
Morris Morell MACDONALD was born in Invercargill, Southland, on 28 June 1903.1 He was also known in the family as Pooh, as all the family carried nicknames from the Winnie-the-Pooh books. The names were started by Morris's sister Berys, who, on seeing him well-dressed for a motor-bike ride, likened him to the rotund Pooh. As she was wearing a striped sweater at the time, she instantly became Tigger.2

He was educated at Southland Boys' High School, John McGlashan College and graduated LL.B. from Otago University. After graduation he joined his father in the family practice, the last Macdonald to serve in that capacity. His special interest was in estate administration and he was also president of the Southland District Law Society in 1938-9.

A keen motor-cyclist, and secretary of the Southland Motor Cycle Club in the mid-1920s, he was elected to represent motor-cycle interests within the AA (Southland) branch in 1928, and rose to be president of the association from 1939 to 1942, becoming a life member in 1974.

He continued a long family connection with the First Presbyterian Church, including being treasurer of the deacon's court for nearly 20 years.3

He married Ivall Moira (Mollie) HANSEN, daughter of David Ernest HANSEN CMG and Ethel May HAMPSON, at St Marks Church in Opawa, Christchurch, Canterbury, on 20 October 1934.4,5
Wedding of Morris MACDONALD and Ivall (Mollie) HANSEN 22 Oct 1934, Christchurch


There being no further family members to continue the firm under the Macdonald name, he practised in partnership with Mr B. R. Bayley under the name of Macdonald and Bayley until his death.3

Morris died on 19 November 1980 at Mater Hospital in Dunedin, Otago, at age 77.3,6,7 He was cremated on 20 November 1980.8 His ashes were interred on 24 November 1980 at Invercargill, Southland.9
