Mary Kathryn Moline Blessing Murray

Mary Kathryn Moline Blessing Murray entered eternal life on Dec. 30, 2013.

The second of two children born to Charles Doak Moline and Thelma Marie Bell on Sept. 7, 1934, Mary was a scholar, athlete, and musician with eclectic interests.

Scholastically she followed her Mother’s footsteps graduating salutatorian from high school (Birdville High School class of 1952). She continued her education as a music major at Texas Wesleyan College.

Mary was a fierce competitor on the high school basketball court and knew the importance of getting the most out of all five fouls.

A master of the pop-up slide she later applied that same competitive spirit to softball and could always be counted on to take the extra base on a base hit. An avid swimmer, there was nothing better for her than flying through the air on the swing at Burger’s Lake or a good turn on a 3-meter diving board.

Her true passion however was music. At the bequest of her father, she began playing the piano at age 7, later developed an enviable soprano voice and also applied her talent to the pipe organ.

Mary impacted hundreds of lives over a lifetime of musical service by sharing her singing and playing piano and pipe organ. She taught piano lessons, although her professionalism and work ethic were living lessons.

For example practice, practice, practice really does make perfect; be early to rehearsal and performance; playing is for the benefit of the audience and to glorify God Almighty not yourself, listen to and analyze what you play; sight read well; when accompanying follow closely helping your singer along the way as needed; encourage young musicians; save the sforzando piston for special occasions to add the crowning glory to full organ, and Wednesday night is positively off limits for any activity except choir practice.
