MARY COLETTE MURRAY-DAILEY

Mary Colette Murray-Dailey of Redmond, WA, originally of Audubon, Iowa died July 5th, after a long illness. She was a fierce fighter to the end.

Her life began on a family farm; she was the second of four girls. She attended Marycrest College on scholarship, studying both drama and teaching. She had a flair for the dramatic and a lifelong love of the arts. She was a devout Catholic, a lifelong teacher, an avid reader, and an involved Mom. In her younger years she was known for being a wonderful dance partner.

She was predeceased by her parents, Albert and Magdalene, and her sisters Jane Wiggins and Colleen Murray of Audubon, Iowa. She is survived by her five sons, James Dailey (Kristen) of Seattle, WA; Sean Dailey, of Redmond, WA; Brian Dailey (Kim), of Lake Stevens, WA; Brendan Dailey, of Redmond, WA; Kevin Dailey (Elise), of Tacoma, WA; nine grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, her sister Lavonne Shoesmith (Darrel) of Audubon, Iowa; and many lifelong friends. She will be greatly missed.
