Betty Lu Murray (nee Robinson)

Murray, Betty Lu

(nee Robinson)

April 13, 1937 — Nov. 24, 2003

Betty Lu was born in Smithers where she received all her schooling and graduated in 1956. She was stricken with polio when she was 15 and after many months at the G.F. Strong Rehabilitation Center in Vancouver learned to walk again. Betty Lu liked crafts, jigsaw and crossword puzzles, playing bingo, going to casinos and watching old movies. She had a great memory and remembered many things from years gone by. She could make the best steak and kidney pie, baked beans and barbecued chicken wings.

In her later years she was confined to a wheel chair after she broke her ankle and was afflicted with post polio syndrome.

She is survived by her loving husband Sandy, sons Keith (Kim), Kevin, and daughter Kathy (Ron); grandchildren Andrew, Aaron and Anthony Murray, Scott and Teresa Brodland; sisters Shirley Wright and Susan (Jack) Stroet; brothers Tom (Roberta) Robinson, Jack (Sue) Robinson.

A memorial service was held on Dec. 2, 2003 at Pioneer Activity Center with Jim Davidson officiating. Eulogist was Anita Tomayer.

Donations in memory of Betty Lu can be made to SPARC B.C. (assistance for polio victims) 201-221 East 10th Avenue, Vancouver, B.C., V5T 4V3.
