Obituary for Arlene Carol Murray (Johnston)

Arlene Carol Murray (Johnston)
Arlene Carol Murray July 15 1936 – August 2nd 2017 of Markham Ontario, passed away peacefully with her family by her side at the Markham Stouffville Hospital, from a sudden illness.
Arlene was born in Thunder Bay, Ontario, the daughter of Maudie and Ross Johnston, and older sister to Wayne (predeceased). Arlene attended the University of Guelph where she received a Bachelor of Science and obtained her Teaching Certificate from the Ontario College of Teachers. Arlene taught high school in Thunder Bay (Port Arthur) Ontario. While teaching she met the love of her life Herb Murray and they were wed on April 1, 1961. Arlene and Herb moved to St Catherines, Ontario to continue teaching where their daughter Allyson was born. In 1970 Herb left teaching to join Ontario Hydro, moving to Deep River, Ontario where their son Ross was born. In 1980, a company transfer to the head office in Toronto led the family to settle in Markham, Ontario.
Arlene was an avid curler and enthusiastic tennis player. She enjoyed playing bridge, quilting and was an active member in the St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church as a member of the Iona Quilters, Christmas Bazaar, the Women’s Service Guild and Bible Study Group.
Arlene is survived by her beloved husband of 56 years and best friend Herb Murray.
She will be missed by her children Allyson and Ross, their respective spouses Doug and Tammy-Jo; much loved and missed by her grandchildren Cheryl (Lewis Scully), Ryan (fiancée Krista Spielman), Dylan and Alex Lawson, William, Madalyn and Wade Murray.
The family is grateful to the palliative care staff at Markham Stouffville Hospital, and the Lakeridge Health Kidney Care Clinic.
Arlene touched many lives with her smile and generosity. Friends and family are invited to attend a memorial service to celebrate her life at 2pm on August 9th, 2017 at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church - 143 Main Street North, Markham Ontario. Reception to follow. Further information can be found at the Chapel Ridge Funeral Home website.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Lakeridge Health Foundation – Kidney Care Program or the Markham Stouffville Hospital Foundation.
