Washington, D.C. - Idaho Senator Mike Crapo issued this statement on the passing of Idaho icon Velma Morrison this past week at the age of 92:
"One cannot travel in Idaho, especially in Boise, without noting the numerous additions Velma Morrison brought to our great state. I join with many Idahoans today in mourning her passing while celebrating the gifts of art, philanthropy, education and leadership she bestowed on us during her long and wonderful life.
"I appreciate the opportunities over the years I had to meet with her, get to know her and work with her on various projects. She was an interested, outstanding individual who contributed greatly to our state."
