Lucille Homer Murri 1918 ~ 2011

BOUNTIFUL, UTAH - Lucille Homer Murri passed away peacefully on July 31, 2011, of natural causes at the Inn on Barton Creek.Lucille was born in Ririe, Idaho, on April 6, 1918, to Ed and Elda Muir Homer. She lived in Idaho Falls, Ogden, Salt Lake City and Bountiful, Utah. She married LaVar C. Murri on April 19, 1940, and they were later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple on June 29, 1943 enjoying 51 years of happiness together. She attended Roosevelt Jr. High and South High School. Lucille and LaVar had a beautiful wooded backyard which became a retreat for their six children, 27 grandchildren and 57 great-grand-children. The leaf raking parties will be missed by all. The weekly gathering at the kitchen "Round Table" resulted in a forum for sharing love and wisdom throughout the entire family. Mom launched the family into boating and camping trips which became one of her most cherished events. The tradition continues and her passing came at the end of the family reunion. She traded the 2011 reunion with her earthly family for a bigger reunion with LaVar, Dean, Eleanore, Bernice, Father and Mother and numerous family and friends. Many of Lucille's family traditions continue to this day and have become an ongoing part of the Murri family culture. Lucille loved her family and was the dream maker for thousands of memories. Many memories originated with the help of her loving sisters Eleanor Kasper and Bernice Hellberg. Together these girls brought friends, family and neighbors together for festive holiday celebrations. Mom was active in the community and the LDS Church. She served as the PTA president of Bountiful Elementary and Bountiful High. She held church callings in Primary, Sunday School and Young Women. She worked as an Accounting Clerk at Farmers State Bank. She is survived by her children, Karen (Mike) Hepworth, Marilyn (Kent) Beckman, Janet (Wayne) McArthur, Cal (Meredith) Murri, Ken (Becky) Murri and Scott (Libby) Murri.
