Main St Quincy Ken and Rosemary Murray Ken Murray was born Jan. 7, 1928, in San Francisco to George and Mary (Dean) Murray. He and Rosemary lived for many years in San Francisco, Moraga, Diamond Springs and later in Walnut Creek. Ken was a 50-year member of the Masonic Lodge where he became Master Mason. Ken loved fishing, camping, motorcycling :and "putter- ing." But most of all he loved re- turning every year to Lake Almanor, with frequent trips to Seneca where his mother's family (Dean) mined for gold. Rosemary was born Dec. 26, 1927, in San Francisco and graduated from UCSF Nursing School in 1950. She was an avid bridge play- er and enjoyed teaching new players, as well as playing par- ty bridge with friends and competing in duplicate tour- naments. Her only regret was not quite reaching Life Master Level in duplicate bridge. The folks spent every sum- mer at Lake Almanor and now will be buried together in the Prattville Cemetery among the pine trees. Please join us July 3 at 10 a.m. at the Prattville Cemetery for grave- side services. Ken and Rosemary are sur- vived by d ughters Linda Murray Jorgensen and Judith Murray Gablehouse; grand- daughter Jennifer Jorgensen; and niece Lynn Shreve Rick- man.
