Marsha Butler Murray

Sept. 29, 1950 – Jul. 10, 2020

Marsha Lynn Butler Murray, 69, of Richmond, Virginia, passed away on July 10, 2020, in the comfort of her home and family.  Marsha was a warrior and battled cancer for more than four years.  Despite the hardships of this disease, she always kept a positive attitude with many smiles and laughter.  She was preceded in death by her father, Byron Edward Butler, and her mother, Doris Schumann Butler.  Marsha will be forever loved by her husband of 45 years, Ian James Murray; daughter Kelly Elizabeth Murray; son Michael James Murray and his wife Jenna Blandford Murray; grandchildren Parker and Maddie Murray; and in-laws Rob and Joanne Blandford. Marsha was a 1968 graduate of Douglas Freeman High.  Before committing full-time to family life and raising two great children plus taking care of many loving pets, Marsha worked with the Independent Board of Insurance Agents and the Richmond Board of Realtors. She also volunteered for Henrico Public Schools in the Writing to Read program. She was a very giving, compassionate and loving person to all! She will be greatly missed by her family and friends, but know that the universe will have our paths cross again one day.  A family gathering is planned to celebrate her beautiful spirit and life.  Memorial donations may be made to the Virginia Cancer Society at
