Bette McHale Murray of Westport, wife of the late Gerald F. Murray, died April 22 at home. She was 86.
She was born Brigid Ann McHale Jan. 26, 1931 in Ballycastle, Co. Mayo, Ireland and emigrated to New York at age 19. Tough as nails and smart as a whip, she worked hard and placed her trust in God.
She was a warm, genuine, and happy soul who took pleasure in simple things. She loved tag sales, maps, talking on the phone, reading, the color pink, Googling, offering others helpful hints, and history.
She was predeceased by her husband, Gerald, and her son, Raymond. She is survived by her children Thomas L. Murray, Maureen Murray, Patricia Johnson, and Eileen Murray and her husband Zachary Djimas; her grandchildren Thomas G. Murray, Paige and Aidan Medley, Shannon and William Johnson, Devon and Dylan Murray; her sister, Julia Marley, and her sister-in-law, Dorothy Murray.
Funeral services will be held on Friday, April 28 at 10 a.m. directly at the Assumption Catholic Church, 98 Riverside Ave., followed by a private interment at Greenwood Union Cemetery in Rye, New York.
The family asks that, in lieu of flowers, kindly visit with or take your grandmother out for lunch.
