 Earlyne Rachel Murray was born May 16, 1934 near Dixon to Earl and Rachel (Isom) McCaw. She was raised in the Dixon area where she met the love of her life, Harold. Earlyne  married Harold Murray June 19, 1954 at St. Anne’s Catholic Church in Dixon. The couple lived near Dixon until moving to Wayne in 1960. Earlyne worked for the Wayne State College food service for 20 years. She and Harold retired at the same time so they could enjoy the things they loved to do together such as gardening, camping and fishing. She loved family gatherings. Whether it was opening pheasant weekend or a holiday, she loved cooking for a crowd. Everyone remembers going to her home and being welcomed with fresh homemade buns and soup. Her cinnamon rolls, butterfinger dessert and scrapple were always the must haves. Her back door was always open for visitors.

Survivors include her children and their spouses, Dennis (Linda) Murray of Wayne, Sherry Murray of Papillion, Loren Murray of Valentine, Tamie (Chuck) Thomas of Marathon, Iowa, and Cheryl Murray of Omaha; 13 grandchildren; 17    great-grandchildren; nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Harold on Oct. 13, 2006; son, Kevin on Oct. 12, 2004;  two sisters, Lee Jean (Kerry) Hanson and Sandra (Pat) Thompson.

Pallbearers will be David Murray, John Murray, Phillip Thomas, Reid Murray, Joe Rohacik, Kevin Hart, Mike Allington, Brent McKinney, David Black and Dillon Bartels.
