Sally A. McMurry, 51
Sally A. McMurry was born Nov. 28, 1958, and went to be with our Lord on Monday, May 3, 2010, after a 51-year courageous battle. She died peacefully surrounded by her family, who loved her dearly. Sally was a lifelong resident of Alamogordo, graduating from Alamogordo High School in 1976 and Eastern New Mexico State University in 1981. She worked at White Sands Missile Range for 20 years. She enjoyed spending time beating her family and friends at playing Yahtzee, Skip-Bo, Greed and dominoes.
Sally was preceded in death by her father, W.J. "Willie" McMurry.
Survivors include her mother, Bessie "Patsy" McMurry, and her siblings, Tom McMurry and Theresa, of Tularosa; Ted McMurry and Jody, of Ozark, Mo.; Tim McMurry and Melody, of Dallas; Susan Galloway and John, of Alamogordo; and Pat McMurry and Karen, of Lakehills, Texas. Sally is also survived by many nieces and nephews who loved her.
The family would like to recognize and thank Dr. John Jones, the specialists and staff at Gerald Champion Regional Medical Center and the staff at Betty Dare for their compassionate care.
A memorial service will be conducted at 1 p.m. Friday, May 7, 2010, at Bethel Baptist Church with Pastor Howell Scott officiating.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donation in Sally's memory be made to the Epilepsy Foundation or Shriner's Hospital for Children.
The McMurry family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Hamilton-O'Dell Funeral Home to direct the arrangements. Cremation will take place locally at PCS.
