MurrayPatsy Ruth Murray, age 62, of Dallas went to dance her feet off in eternal glory on the 7th of August 2016. Born September 10th 1953 in Dallas, TX, to Leo and Virginia Austin, Patsy was a cherished wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and loyal friend.

She was an avid dancer and gardener with a passion for her flowers. The love she carried for her daughters, granddaughters, and great grand babies goes beyond words. Those who knew her, know she could light up a room with her kindred spirit and bright beautiful smile. She always looked forward to her weekends of line dancing with the girls and traveling to different local venues to see her favorite boys play. She will always be remembered as someone who never met a stranger and welcomed everyone with open arms.

As if that wasn’t enough, she was also a master baker of fine German chocolate cakes and buttermilk pies and was appointed head of security for the Midtown Playboys Band. Patsy worked for Southern Flow; ZEDI prior to her retirement in 2014. She was baptized in the summer of 2011 and above all she placed her trust and faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

She is survived by her daughters, Kay, Kim, Kelly and Sheryl; son Jay; sisters, Diane and Debra; brothers, Larry and Charles; sons-in-law, Paul and Ricky; 5 granddaughters; and 3 great grand babies; as well as numerous sisters and brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews and many, many friends who all held a special place in her heart giving her a renewed spirit full of joy and happiness.

She was preceded in eternal life by her husband of 43 years, Ronald Lee Murray, and her great grandson, “Angel baby” Xander Mason.
