Martha "Marty" Jane (Smith) Murray, loving wife, mother and grandmother passed away peacefully and unexpectedly at her home in Wyoming, Ohio on Friday, September 16, 2022.
Marty was born on March 12, 1956. Originally from Lima, Ohio, she moved to the Cincinnati area in 2001 to be near her grandchildren. Marty devoted her life to her own family and her school family. She touched the lives of many students and teachers as an educational aide in the Lima City Schools and the Wyoming City Schools until her retirement in 2021.
Marty's favorite things were: Sunday Dinner (which she hosted for her family every week), hummingbirds, filling special note cards with touching sentiments, holding babies, a good travel fan, singer-songwriters, collecting beautiful dishes, Raymond Reddington, Hot Tamales candy, late night movies, buttered popcorn, wine on the deck, the corner of a comfy couch, a great tote bag, Lifesaver mints, celebrating with a martini...or two, a well-timed joke, everything and anything involving her children and grandchildren.
Marty will forever be loved and missed by her best friend and husband of 48 years, Mike; her children Stacy (Brian) Akers and Trevor (Kristine) Murray; her grandchildren, Grayce Akers, Chloe Akers, Sam Murray, Kate Murray, and Annie Murray; her sister Diana (Greg) Bowers and her brother Howard (Michele) Smith. She is preceded in death by her brother, Randy Smith and her parents.
A private funeral for the family is scheduled for Wednesday, September 21, 2022. Family, friends and others whose lives Marty touched are invited to a reception to reminisce and support each other on Wednesday, September 21, 2022 from 4-6pm.
