Myrissa was born on April 10, 1991 in Watertown, NY to George and Tracey (Scott) Murray. She was homeschooled through high school, and graduated in 2008. She did her senior year of high school and first year of SUNY Canton dual, then attended JCC. She worked as a teacher's assistant at BOCES until becoming ill in 2015. She loved fostering cats for Friends 4 Pound Paws before she became too ill to continue that passion. She loved showing halter appaloosa horses as a teen and was invited to the World Show in Fort Worth with her gelding appaloosa Clear Distinction. She loved camping at her family's camp, playing cards, and anything to do with her beloved cats and dog. She was deeply loved by many for her infectious laugh, sense of humor and sparkling blue eyes.
She is survived by her parents George and Tracey Murray of Fine; a brother, Ethan who is currently working in Afghanistan; her grandmother, Geneva Blackburn of Star Lake; grandparents, Gary and Linda Scott of Sylvia Lake and Myrtle Beach; many aunts, uncles and cousins. And, most of all, her loves and center of her world, her fur babies…Jack, Pippa and Fester.
Myrissa is predeceased by her grandparents George and Margaret Murray; great grandparents, Art and Geneva Austin, Paul and Barbara Scott and Doris Pearson.
Donations may be made in Myrissa's memory to Friends 4 Pound Paws, P.O. Box 394, Gouverneur, NY 13642.
