1930 - 2021
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Anne Thelma Murray (nee Lagoyda), a loving wife, mother and friend to many, who passed away in Lethbridge on Friday, March 26, 2021 at the age of 90 years.
Anne will be laid to rest with her husband Alex at the Taber Memorial Garden. She is survived by her sons Kenneth (Jean) Murray of Pincher Creek, Warren Murray of Lethbridge and daughter Brenda Anderson of Vancouver, British Columbia and their families. She will be remembered by close friends Marion and Don Hamilton and by her neighbor Joyce Klassen.
She was predeceased by her husband Alex Murray, her parents, brother and sister.
Anne was born in Hardieville on July 18, 1930. As a child she remembered her parents making the day trip to Lethbridge by horse and buggy to get supplies. Anne stayed behind and attended to the needs of her siblings. She learned to cook and bake at a very young age. Anne worked as the head cashier at Canada Safeway in Taber before her retirement and made many friends. After Alex's death, she relocated from Taber to her birth home of Lethbridge (Hardieville).
Anne was a caring and generous woman, an avid gardener and fer-vent fisherwoman, she lived to cast a line at Beauvais Lake, always eager for a day of fishing. She loved to crochet. Over the years she made countless blankets for the Taber Brownie/Guide raffles. If someone was having a baby there was always a blanket ready to gift to the new mom and baby. If you needed vegetables, her garden provided to many.
Anne saw every year as a gift. Determined to stay in her own home, she received the best of excellent care from home care and her doctors. Her family is so very grateful to them all for the time spent with her and their dedication to their work. They became her friends. Anne will be missed.
