Inscription
In Recognition of
The Reverend J. Ward Morrison
Pastor Emeritus
Queen of the Rosary Parish
Elk Grove Village, Illinois

This Boulevard is named in honor of the Reverend J. Ward Morrison. He devoted much of his time, energies and talents not only to his church but to the benefit of many of the people of Elk Grove Village. He especially demonstrated an affection for children and a concern for those in need.

Father Morrison, a priest for over 50 years, was the first Pastor of Queen of the Rosary Parish and an early civic and religious leader in the community. A Chaplain to our Fire Department, he also served as a Chaplain in the United States Armed Services during World War II.

Father Morrison embraced our community and its residents with a heart as large as the world.

In recognition and gratitude for Father Morrison's unselfish dedication, labor and love for the people of Elk Grove Village, we name this Boulevard in his honor.
