Alta's profound influence on education was particularly evident during her extensive career as an educator, spanning over 40 years. Her commitment to fostering young minds was exemplified during her tenure as the principal of Stone Middle School. Alta's fervent dedication to education garnered the deep respect and admiration of both colleagues and students alike, leaving an indelible mark on the educational community she served with passion and unwavering commitment.

In addition to her professional accomplishments, Alta will be remembered for her warmth, kindness, and the enduring friendships she cultivated over her lifetime. Her presence and guidance will be sorely missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.

The family kindly suggests that, in lieu of flowers, contributions be directed to Russellville First Baptist Church in Russellville, Alabama, a place that held significant importance to Alta Ann Morrison's family. Her mother's enduring dedication to the church, where she played the piano for services for over 50 years, makes it a fitting tribute in honor of Alta's memory. Your thoughtful donations will support the church's continued service to the community, reflecting Alta's cherished connection to faith and community.
