The Murrays

William "Bill" and Rayetta Marie Murray celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary April 4, 2009, with a surprise anniversary dinner hosted by their daughter, Tammy Lewis, at Nick's Airport Inn in Hagerstown.

The couple was surprised by a host of family and friends who came as far as Ohio to celebrate their very special occasion. They were honored with a citation from Gov. Martin O'Malley. The evening included special memories of their married life as well as a card shower from out-of-town friends and family.

The Murray's were married April 16, 1949 in Hagerstown.

Bill is retired from Ogden Foods, and Rayetta is retired from AT&T.

After retiring, they spent several years operating Stephanie's Breakfast Bar at the city market.

William is the son of the former Rev. William F. and Bessie Murray. Rayetta is the daughter of the former Charles and Mary Bloyer.

They are members of Grace United Methodist Church.


The Murray's have one daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter residing in Sylvania, Ohio.
