Murray George Obituary, Death – It is with profound sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Murray George of Palmerston. On Wednesday, August 30, 2023, in his 90th year, Murray left this world while surrounded by the care of the Palmerston and District Hospital. His legacy of love and warmth will forever be cherished by those who had the privilege of knowing him.
Murray was not only a beloved husband but also a cherished father and grandfather. For 45 years, he shared a deep and enduring love with his wife, Roza (Ivankovic) George. Together, they created a home filled with love, laughter, and lasting memories. Murray was a dear father to Sandra and Ray Beisel of Guelph, Debbie Kiss and Siggy Carias of Florida, and Michael and Janice George of Kurtzville. His role as a grandfather was truly special, as he held a special place in the hearts of his 7 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.
Murray’s presence extended beyond his immediate family. He was a beloved brother to Isobel and Jack Rice of Kitchener and a cherished brother-in-law to Betty George of Port Elgin. His warm and welcoming nature made him a favorite among his nieces, nephews, and friends. His memory will forever be cherished by those fortunate enough to have known him.
In accordance with Murray’s wishes, cremation has already taken place. To celebrate his life and pay tribute to his memory, a gathering of family and friends will take place at the Heritage Funeral Home in Palmerston on Saturday, September 9, 2023, from 11:00 to 11:45 a.m. This will be followed by a Memorial Service of Remembrance at 12:00 p.m. and a celebration at the Frank Lambier Legion, Palmerston.
In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that expressions of sympathy be made in the form of donations to the Palmerston Hospital Foundation. These contributions will serve as a lasting tribute to Murray’s memory and his enduring legacy of compassion and care. Murray George will be remembered not only for the years he lived but for the love and warmth he shared with all those he touched.
