Mary Kathryn Moline Blessing Murray


Mary was a member of the American Guild of Organist-Ft.Worth Chapter and organist for First United Methodist Church, Mineral Wells; Riverside United Methodist Church, Ft. Worth; St. Luke United Methodist Church, Ft. Worth; substitute organist for First Christian Church, Breckenridge; and sang in many choirs and choruses.

Mary was employed as a staff accountant with Bell Helicopter Textron for 42 years. She began her tenure in 1955 and retired in 1997.

Mary was a dedicated employee and through the years we were again witness to another life lesson ... nothing interfered with the week of the accounting close; next to Wednesday night choir practice this event was sacrosanct.

Mary delighted in making others feel special. She was a master of showing appreciation with her kind words at just the right moment or dropping a card in the mail to celebrate or pick you up.

She was relentless with her quick wit, everyday cheerfulness, and strong will. Her continuous glass half-full outlook on life is a testament to her character; a testament we should all wish to emulate.

Mary is reunited with her parents Charles and Thelma Moline, brother Charles Moline, Jr., and aunt Evelyn Bell Harrell.

Her spirit is carried forward by the family she adored, daughter Beth Blessing of Southlake; husband Frank Murray of Moran;  Ande Huffstutler; sister-in-law Dorothy Moline; nieces Kathy Moline Buchanan (husband Al), Joanna Moline Horton, and Charlotte Moline Neill (husband Tim); nephews Jon Kemp (wife Dottie), Kevin Kemp (wife Shelley), and Jay Kemp (wife Jackie); cousins Ross Moline, Jon Moline (wife Sandra), and Donald Moline; great nieces and nephews, great-great nieces, and scores of wonderful friends as extended family.

Where words fail, music speaks and music is well said to be the speech of angels. You are the music in our hearts, the angel to our soul.  We are forever blessed for you in our lives and will miss your joy, strength of spirit, boundless energy and love.

Service: 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 4, in Moran Cemetery Pavilion, Moran.

Visitation: Jan. 2-4 at Kimbrough Funeral Home in Cisco.

Memorials: Please consider Hendrick League House 1910 Hickory St., Abilene, 79601 or The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals www.aspca.org.

Thank you: The family wishes to express sincere and heartfelt gratitude to the many doctors, nurses, aides, technicians, social workers, and staff of Hendrick Medical Center for their kindness, care, and support.

  • Sunburn isn't the only sign of summer that can leave you itchy and blistered

    You've got a rash. You quickly rule out the usual suspects: You haven't been gardening or hiking or even picnicking, so it's probably not a plant irritant such as poison ivy or wild parsnip; likewise, it's probably not chiggers or ticks carrying Lyme disease; and you haven't been swimming in a pond, which can harbor the parasite that causes swimmer's itch.
