Hope Darlene Murray
    Hope Darlene Murray, 58, of Middleton, died Saturday, March 30, 1996, at home of natural causes.
    Graveside ser-vices will be held at 1 p.m. Tuesday, April 2, at the Middleton Cemetery.  The Rev. Charles E. Jackson, retired from the Middleton Nazarene Church, will officiate.  Services are under the direction of Dakan Funeral Chapel, Caldwell.
    Hope was born Dec. 12, 1937, at Seymour, Mo., to Ben and Ida Porter, and moved to Idaho at age 3.  In June of 1960 she married Lloyd Murray.  They have made Middleton their home for many years, farming and making many friends along the way.  She was Lloyd's wife, best friend, and lifelong partner.
    Hope was wonderful seamstress.  She sewed a majority of Lloyd's clothing, and her children's also through their growing up years.  She continued that tradition with all of her grandchildren.  Mom also loved flowers, especially roses, and enjoyed adding to her flower garden every year.  Mom was also a wonderful cook, and enjoyed canning every year.
    Hope loved spending time with her grandchildren who were so special to her, and watching them grow up over the years.  She was a funny lady whose sense of humor will be truly missed.
    She is survived by her husband, Lloyd; her children and spouses, including Robbie Guthrie in California, Eric Howard of Boise, Perry and Carla Howard of Caldwell, Karl and Bev Murray of Nampa, Donna and Darrell Walker of Caldwell, Jonathan Murray of Middleton, Andy and Mari Murray of Middleton; her mother, Ida Porter of Boise; her sister, Bertha Fitch of Boise; her brother, Ben Porter of Boise; 19 grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.  She was preceded in death by her father, Ben Porter; and her grandson, Jason Howard.
    Mom, we love you and will miss you very much!
