AN ENTHUSIASTIC collector for the Royal British Legion, Myrna Murray, has died suddenly, aged 73.
Mrs Murray was born in Glasgow in June 1944 but moved from Scotland when she was three, travelling with her family to Japan, Germany and the Far East before returning to the UK.
After a brief period in the Lake District, she moved to Sandown in 1959.
She was the first paper girl to be employed at Rix newsagents and later worked at the Queen’s Cinema as an usherette and at Wray’s the grocers.
Following a move to Ryde, she worked as a cook at the town’s Royal County Hospital but then moved to the kitchens at St Mary’s Hospital where she met her husband-to-be, Ian.
The couple were married in 1971 at the Holy Cross Church, Binstead, and had one son, John.
Mrs Murray later resumed work at Ryde Hospital, and then, for many years until its closure in 2014, assisted with cleaning at Jack’s in Ryde’s Union Street, as well as at Ryde High School and Greenmount Primary School.
She attended Garfield Road Methodist Church, Ryde, and helped with the church lunch club until a few days before her death on November 18.
Her Royal British Legion collection accumulated a record £118 last year, although she died before knowing the total.
In recent years, along with her husband, she was a volunteer at the IW Bus Museum and regularly spent holidays in Malta, Ireland and Newcastle.
She is survived by her husband, son, daughter-in-law, Sarah, and siblings, Elizabeth, David and Tom.
Her funeral service took place at the IW Crematorium on December 6 and was conducted by her brother, Tom, the vicar of Royton-on-Tyne, near Newcastle.
