Morice, Louise (Lucy) (1859–1951)

Until a few years ago Mrs. Lucy Morice, whose death occurred on Sunday at the great age of 92, maintained a keen interest in the work of the kindergarten movement in SA, in the foundation of which, in 1905, she was actively associated with the Rev. Bertram Hawker. As might have been expected of a niece of Catherine Helen Spence, Mrs. Morice was deeply interested in public welfare, and she was a leader in many movements which left their imprint on the life of South Australia. Her work for the kindergartens was honored by the only life membership awarded by the Kindergarten Union, and her name is perpetuated in the Lucy Morice Kindergarten in North Adelaide.
