Shirley Murray

Re-united now with her love in heaven

Shirley Murray passed away peacefully on Monday, April 22 at West Revere Health Center in Revere after a brief illness. She was 89 years old.

She was born in Lowell, daughter the late Hilding Anderson and Doris (Aitken) Anderson;  granddaughter of Nels & Neta (Johansdotter) Anderson, William 3rd and Melissa (Ayen) Aitken.  Her family moved to Revere in the early 1930’s.

She attended Revere Public Schools through grade 8, leaving due to vision problems. While her peers were attending grade 9, she went to work at the Five & Dime in Beachmont. She met and fell in love with the love of her life, Donald Goss Murray. They were married in 1949. They became the proud parents of three sons, Laurence of Arlington, Richard  of  North Carolina and Donald of Newton.  She lived in Revere for over 87 years.

In her younger day,s she enjoyed the Lighthouse Cafe on Revere Beach and the Beachmont Yacht Club. She kept a beautiful and tidy home, which she enjoyed decorating for each season and holiday. She was very thoughtful, always remembering birthdays. She was very independent, one of the strongest women we have known.  She had a strong love of cats and always asked and cared about the family’s pets.  She also enjoyed flowers, especially her husband’s roses, and nature’s beauty. She treasured visits from family.  Her grandchildren felt the she was one of their biggest cheerleaders; supporting their interests and dreams, even if they did not align with her own ideologies.  She was well liked, charming and a doll. She will be greatly missed but we are comforted knowing that she will be reunited with her love in heaven.

Shirley is survived by her sons; two sisters, Beverly Nicolas and Marjorie Anderson of Braintree;   six grandchildren and six great grandchildren. She is also survived by nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband in 2007.
