Bette Ann Murray, 86, passed away peacefully on April 22, 2017 at home in Westport, CT, with her loving family by her side. She was born Brigid Ann McHale on January 26, 1931 in Ballycastle, Co. Mayo, Ireland and emigrated to New York at age 18. Tough as nails and smart as a whip, she worked hard and placed her trust in God. She was a warm, genuine, and happy soul who took pleasure in simple things. She loved tag sales, maps, talking on the phone, reading, the color pink, Googling, offering others helpful hints, and history. She was predeceased by her husband, Gerald, and her son, Raymond. She is survived by her children Thomas L. Murray, Maureen Murray, Patricia Johnson, and Eileen Murray and her husband Zachary Djimas; her adoring grandchildren Thomas G. Murray, Paige and Aidan Medley, Shannon and William Johnson, Devon and Dylan Murray; her sister, Julia Marley, and her sister-in-law, Dorothy Murray. She will be deeply missed and her spirit treasured forever in the hearts of her family. Bette's funeral mass will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, April 28th at Church of the Assumption, 98 Riverside Avenue, Westport, CT followed by a private internment at Greenwood Union Cemetery in Rye, New York. The family asks that, in lieu of flowers, kindly visit with or take your grandmother out for lunch.
