Mrs. Mary Lea (Abbie) Murray, age 85, of Corsicana, Texas, went to be with Her Lord and Savior on Thursday, December 13, 2018 at Navarro Regional Hospital. She was born in Bradley, Oklahoma on November 6, 1933 to O.E. “Ted” and Margorie “Margie” Abbie.

She married A. C. Murray on December 26, 1952 and they spent almost 66 years together. Lea was a long time employee of Desoto ISD and she and A.C. lived in Desoto for 40 years. While living in Desoto she was an active member of Hampton Road Baptist Church. After moving to Corsicana she and A.C. joined Northside Baptist Church where they became an active part of the church’s ministry. She and A.C. owned and operated a business known as “Trash to Treasure” and spent many weekends selling their creations in Canton at First Monday. Lea loved working as a volunteer at the Corsicana Public Library working in the Genealogy Department and she enjoyed scrap booking in her spare time.

Lea was preceded in death by her parents; her brother, James “Bud” Abbie and son: Steven Murray.

She is survived by her husband, A.C. Murray of Corsicana; her children; Scott Murray and wife, Pam of Allen, Texas and Malea Murray Street of Ft. Worth, Texas; her grandchildren, Ashley Murray of Allen, Texas, Jett Street of Ft.

My condolences to the Murray Family. May you find comfort in God’s word the Bible during this difficult time. John 5:28, 29 assure us of God’s promise to undo death and resurrect our dear loved ones sleeping in death back to life on a paradise earth. Revelation 21:4 Isaiah 25:8. I hope you find much comfort in this wonderful promise from God.

My condolences to the Murray family during this difficult time. In the Bible, Jehovah God gives us hope. Acts 24:15 says, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” Revelation 21:4 says, “and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.” Very soon we will see the fulfillment of these promises here on Earth.

I've only had the pleasure of knowing Lea for a short time being new to Navarro Co. I found her easy to talk to as she seemed truly interested in what you had to say. When she found out I was researching the Drain Comm. she had a photo copied of students from the school of 1916. While working in the Genealogy Section of the Library on the next Monday in walks her husband with the picture. I visited with her Tuesday Dec 11 at the Library. We shared our love of history and those who brought us to where we are today. My best wishes to the family as you go forward without your love one. Good bye Sweet Lady we will miss you!
