Elnora McMurray Obituary
McMurray, Elnora



Elnora McMurray passed her spirit to her new home Nov 4, 2016, at the age of 88. She was born in Kansas City, Kansas, on April 30, 1928. She and her husband moved to Albuquerque in 1973 where she obtained a Masters Degree in Education Administration at UNM and had a successful career in that field. She was a member of the American Association of University Women.

Elnora was preceded in death by her parents Robert and Edna Sears and by her son Lane.

She is survived by her husband of 67 years, Bob, and by her three children: Dana McMurray in Missoula, MT, Marsha McMurray-Avila and husband Ricardo in Albuquerque, and Paula Gharib in Apple Valley, CA. She was blessed with two grandchildren, Laisha Avila in Albuquerque and Bijan Gharib in Bakersfield CA. She was then further blessed with three more grandchildren from Asia, Zhou Zhou, Jung and Aidan McMurray in Missoula.

Elnora derived great pleasure from traveling, reading, square dancing and several different game groups. She will be missed by all who knew her.

Elnora's family wishes to express their thanks to Alliance Hospice Care for their careful attention to her needs during a difficult time and to the staff and residents of the Brookdale Senior Living Community for their caring and compassion.
