Obituary

Feleica Murray passed away on March 8, 2021 at the ripe young age of 65 after a continuous and lifelong battle with rheumatoid arthritis. She was surrounded by loved ones during her final hours and they will continue to honor her legacy by living their lives to the fullest. For those of you who knew Felecia, she was a beautiful soul and a ferocious female warrior. She raised 4 beautiful children almost single handedly and never complained about her position in life. She taught her children the importance of laughter and self-expression. Felecia held no punches when it came to speaking her mind which illuminated the beauty of her life. She was open, honest, and blunt. She loved life despite the tough hand that she was dealt.
      Without much formal education, she challenged her children to dream big. She taught them the importance of hard work and relationship management. She demanded them to always be the best versions of themselves regardless of outcome. To her credit, she raised a successful insurance executive, two nurses, and a health professional. She also impacted the lives of so many others.
      The simplest pleasures in life brought her joy but nothing gave her more pleasure than spending time her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She also loved playing poker, bingo, and watching her Cleveland Browns!
      Feleica Rena Murray, 65, of Canton, was born in Canton on April 16, 1955, a daughter of the late Fred and Zeola (Magee) Wright Sr., also preceded in death by brother Tezzy Wright.
