Sarah BRAMBLE  (1883 - 1961)  :

Sarah BRAMBLE, born Hampshire, was the daughter of Sarah (nee BENNETT ?) and Joseph BRAMBLE.   She arrived in New Zealand as an infant with her parents and several siblings.
[Sophie BRAMBLE, (married A.J. STAPLETON) referred to in the wedding article link posted earlier, was her NZ-born sister.]

Sarah BRAMBLE remained a spinster and died aged 77 years in 1961, as you found in the listing.  She was the birth mother of Alexa Edna Rita BRAMBLE.

Obviously it is difficult to know exactly under what circumstances Alexa BRAMBLE came to be a part of the Charles L. MORRISON family ?   Alexa BRAMBLE's birth > 14 April 1915 > was registered at Auckland, as was the birth (5 June 1915) of Jessie HOYE (d/o Mary Ethel, later MORRISON) some seven weeks later.

Of most interest perhaps, is that Sarah BRAMBLE did have a relationship with her daughter Alexa, and Alexa in turn, was acknowledged by at least two of Sarah's  siblings.
[The 1927 Will of Joseph BRAMBLE bequeaths a third share each of his real and personal property to his sisters Flora Ann BRAMBLE and Sarah BRAMBLE and his niece, Alexa BRAMBLE.
The 1947 Will of Flora Ann BRAMBLE, names "my sister Sarah BRAMBLE, spinster of Glen Eden and, my niece Alexa Edna Rita SORENSEN, single woman of Thames", as executrices.]

The following is the link to the Will (Probate file) of Sarah BRAMBLE (it also names a grandchild).

Sarah BRAMBLE, (despite her child apparently having been born in Auckland in 1915), resided prior to, up until about 1938, at the settlement of Waitekauri  (Waikato district) which was about less than 10 miles or so from Waihi, where the MORRISONs lived.
According to electoral rolls, a number of BRAMBLE siblings were also living at or near Waitekauri.       
From 1946 Sarah lived with her spinster sister, Flora at Glen Eden, Auckland.   Flora died there in 1957 and it may have been about this time that Sarah returned to Thames (Waikato) where Alexa was then living.

To follow is info for Jessie HOYE (b. 1915 - later known as Jessie MORRISON) :

... the informaton I've given here for Sarah BRAMBLE came from a number of sources, but whilst I was searching, I came across a "family tree" (@ ancestry website).
Somewhat ironically it was the "HOY family tree" although it seems to have no connection at all to HOYE (as in Mary Ethel w/o Charles L. MORRISON).   ;D 
Rather the connection seems to be to the BRAMBLE family - in particular the union of Sophie BRAMBLE and A.J. STAPLETON (m. 1908).

The "tree" is not of any importance at all to your MORRISON search, but it does have a rather lovely photo of Sarah BRAMBLE and her daughter Alexa (just in case you're interested).

Jessie HOYE -- aka Jessie MORRISON :

Below are details > Waihi Cemetery > for Jessie CARTER (d. 2003) and her husband Edward Alan James* CARTER (d. 1993) :

[*  Other records - including marriage in 1940 - show his names as Allan Edward James CARTER.  ]

http://property.hauraki-dc.govt.nz/cemetery/by_surname.asp

NZ BDM - Death Index (online) has >
2003 / 23517 - CARTER - Jessie - date of birth =  5 June 1915

Electoral rolls show that there may have been two sons of the union (i.e. possible children sharing a common address).    [Neil Henry Charles CARTER also on the Waihi Cemetery database (d. 1999) is possibly a son ? ]
