Faith Murray, 78, passed away suddenly and peacefully on February 11, 2009 at Pioneer House Assisted Living in Fargo. Faith was born March 4,1930 in Caledonia, ND to William and Ida Provance. After graduation from the Caledonia school, Faith worked as a telephone operator in Detroit Lakes MN, where she met and married her husband of 53 years, Warren Murray. Faith and Warren lived in Fargo, Sioux Falls, SD, Petersburg, ND, and Phoenix, AZ, before returning to Fargo in 2005. Faith continued to work at Bell Telephone and the Sears credit department until her retirement. Faith made many new friends with each move, adding them to an ever-growing collection. She was always a tireless volunteer in her church and community. She loved spending time at her cabin on Big Floyd Lake with her grandchildren, painting, entertaining, and difficult jigsaw puzzels. Faith’s smile and gentle compassion will be missed greatly by her family and many friends.
She is survived by husband, Warren Murray; son, Earl Murray; daughter, Suzanne Cossette (Paul); grandchildren, Sam and Dana Murray, John and Mark Cossette; brother Neff (Bill) Provance (Gladys); and many nieces and nephews.
