Anne Cecilia Murray was born in San Antonio on September 8, 1974, and grew up in Corpus Christi, Texas. She died in her sleep at her home in Corpus Christi on June 11, 2019.
Anne loved her friends and had a zest for life. She also enjoyed spending time with her Anderson and Murray relatives. One of her goals was to own and drive a dirt-track racecar, which she did for years. She attended Incarnate Word Academy, and she worked as a skilled clerical assistant.
But the job she loved most was being a parent and raising her six-year-old son, Gustavo "Gus" Anderson DeLeon.
She is survived by her son Gus; her brother, Robert Murray, and his wife Olga and their newborn Lillian Aspen Murray, of Pflugerville; her father, Michael R. Murray, of Portland, Texas; her step-father W.D. Williams, of Corpus Christi; and her best friend Margaret "Maggie" Escalante Ross, of Corpus Christi. She is also survived by numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Lillian Anderson Murray Williams, her maternal grandparents, Cecilia and Hudson Anderson, and her paternal grandparents, Rosalia and Sid Murray, all of Corpus Christi.
A Memorial Service to celebrate Anne's life will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 12, 2019, at Seaside Reid Chapel. Inurement to follow at Seaside Columbarium.
