Wendy Margaret Murray (nee Martyn)
31st January 1921 - 8th March 2014
Former New Hall pupil Wendy Margaret Murray (nee Martyn and affectionately known as Pom) passed away on the 8th of March this year at the age of ninety three. Pom spent many happy years at New Hall during the nineteen thirties, and was a classmate and lifelong friend of Bridget O'Connor/Sister Mary Christopher.
While serving as a VAD nurse in 1943, Pom met her husband-to-be, Dr. Greer Murray. Pom and Greer settled in South West Scotland after the war, and were blessed with four children, six grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Greer died peacefully at home in 2005 at the age of ninety.
The light that Pom found in New Hall, and in her father's faith, lit up the whole of her life and touched the lives of everyone she met. She is greatly missed.
