Nancy Murray Obituary

Nancy L. Murray,

age 82, of Canton, passed away peacefully on March 11th, 2024 with her family at her side.  She was born on June 8, 1941 and was the daughter of the late Earl and Ruby (Turkovich) Baxter.  She resided in Waynesburg for 41 years before moving to Canton South.

Nancy was a 1959 graduate of Sandy Valley High School. After high school she became a licensed Cosmetologist before being hired by TRW (PCC Airfoils) where she retired after 36 years.  She was a member of St. James Catholic Church.  While working full time and raising a family, she volunteered her time on the Waynesburg Fire Department Women’s Auxiliary where she cooked, baked, and was part of many fundraisers to support the Volunteer Fire Department. 

Nancy and her late husband Bill enjoyed their winters in Sarasota, FL where she enjoyed soaking up the sun and frequent shopping trips.  She loved spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.  Nancy enjoyed sitting outside watching all the kids’ sporting events. Nancy was a very hardworking woman always putting her family first her entire life.  She took great pride in her home; she loved tinkering outside with her flowers and landscaping.  Nancy was also known for all-day shopping trips to the Amish country, visiting gift shops and the nearby greenhouses.  The family always joked about getting on the Murray bus because you never knew what time you would return home.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her late husband of 57 years, Bill Murray, daughter, Patricia Murray, two brothers, Don and Robert Baxter, father-in-law and mother in-law Harry and Elizabeth Murray, her sisters-in-law, Sue Baxter, Doris Rice, and Lola Hoover.

She is survived by her son Bill “Bouncer” Murray and daughter Nichole “Nikki” (Michael) Herstine.  She has three grandchildren, Lucas (Samantha) Murray, Morgan (Evan) McIntosh, and Cole Murray, six great-grandchildren, Luke, Ellie, Emmy Murray and Ezra, Zara, and Evander McIntosh; sister, Joann (Jim) Brown, brothers and sisters-in-law, Mike and Roberta Murray, James and Phyllis Murray, Gale and Tina Murray.  Nancy is also survived by her several nieces, nephews, great nieces, and great nephews. 

The family would like to extend a sincere thank you to her special friend Angela Oberster and neighbors Chuck and Tammy Corregan. The family would also like to thank the staff at Aultman Compassionate Care facility where they were able to keep her comfortable during her final days.

A Memorial Service will be held Sat. at 11 a.m. in the Finefrock-Gordon Funeral Home in Magnolia with Fr. Matthew Humerighouse as officiant.  Friends may call Friday 4-7 p.m. and Sat. 10-11 a.m. before the service.  Inurnment will be in Ohio Western Reserve National Cemetery.  Memorial contributions in Nancy’s name may be made to Aultman Hospice and Palliative Care, 2821 Woodlawn Ave. NW, Canton, OH 44708.  Condolences may be sent to: www.gordonfuneralhomes.rr.com
