Muriel Louise Roberts Massey

Alexandria, VA – Muriel Louise (Roberts) Massey, 84, passed away on Wednesday, January 23, 2019. Muriel was surrounded by her family in the last days of her life, all of whom will be eternally grateful for that time with her.

Muriel was born on April 8, 1934 in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire to the late Leon and Gladys Roberts and a graduate of Brewster Academy, Wolfeboro NH in 1952. She was also a medical records transcriptionist for many years and retired from Huggins Hospital, Wolfeboro NH. Muriel was a member of the Auxiliary to VFW Post 7327, Springfield, Virginia and was twice recognized for her fundraising activities in her apartment community at Manchester Lakes Senior Apartments in support of many activities the VFW supports for military service. One of Muriel’s favorite activities (since age 18) was playing bingo and she has a large loving group of friends and “adopted” sons and daughters who all called her “Mom” in the bingo community.
She is preceded in death by her late husband Roland Massey, her parents Leon and Gladys Roberts, her brother Donald (June) Roberts, her sister Lillian (Jeanette) Massey, and her beloved youngest son, William (Bill) Murdock.

She is survived by her daughter, Valerie Murrell, Gary (Monica) Murdock, David Murdock, and daughter -in-law of the heart, Carmen Jo Trummer. She was “GMa” to grandchildren Jessica (Bryan) Poley, Jennifer (Justin) Wood, Jennifer (Michael) Paloski, Andrew Murdock, Michael Murdock, Zaviere Murrell, Madeline Murdock, Tej Trummer-Dutta, and Torin Trummer. And “GGMa” to great-grandchildren Damien and Delilah Wood, Ethan and Jonathan Polaski. She is also survived by nieces, nephews, stepchildren, and many life-long friends.

The family would also like to thank the medical professionals (our angels) at Inova Fairfax Hospital and The Virginian Skilled Nursing facility who took care of Muriel in her final days.

In lieu of local services, Muriel will be taken home to her beloved Wolfeboro, New Hampshire this summer where she will be reunited with her parents in her eternal resting place.

Also, in lieu of flowers or other items of remembrance, the family is suggesting donations in her name to The Mount Washington Observatory at, Stop Soldier Suicide at, or any organization related to military service.

Condolences can be offered online at or written in care of Valerie Murrell, 6007 Curtier Dr Unit E, Alexandria VA 22310.
