Miki Scott Murray, 91, Sebastian

January 25, 1932 – April 19, 2023

Miki Scott Murray passed away peacefully on Wednesday afternoon, April 19th, 2023, at Sebastian River Medical Center at the age of 91. Her children were by her bedside during her final moments.

Miki had been a resident of Sebastian since 2004, having moved from Palm Beach Gardens. A Floridian from birth, she was born in Fort Myers, and loved to travel the world extensively. But Florida was always home base.

Miki met her husband, Julian Nathan Murray, while attending Andrew Jackson High School in Jacksonville, where they both grew up. They got married in 1952. Julian went on to become a US Air Force pilot, was a veteran of the Korean War, though he didn’t fly again until later in life when he reignited his passion for flying as a hobby. In 1974, Miki was tragically widowed at the age of 42 when the plane that Julian was piloting went down en route from West Palm to the Bahamas. In our family history, Julian was the first to pass and now Miki is the last to pass of their generation. This marks the end of a generational era for the Murray, Scott and Thorsen family lines.

Miki was a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints. Besides traveling, her other interests included collecting seashells, sea glass and flat rocks at the beach to decorate her garden, eating seafood, and creating culinary delights. She was a successful real estate broker for many years mostly in Palm Beach County. She always loved dancing, enjoying all kinds of music, and was known to really rock out tapping into the energy of her younger self. Miki once told her daughter that she would have loved to have been a Rockette! She was an avid horticulturist and her patient demeanor paired well with her most recently acquired passion of assembling puzzles with her companion of 11 years, Carlton “Butch” Havens.

Miki loved her family immensely and treasured every moment spent with them. She is survived by her son, John Murray and wife, Michele; daughter, Julie Murray Kantor and husband, Cary; grandchildren, Aubrey Thelen and husband, Ross, Julian Ness, Brett Murray and wife, Katie, Brian Murray and wife, Jackie, Lauren DaCosta and husband, Ryan; great-grandchildren, Parker and Elliot Thelen, Tyler, Ryan, and Allison Murray, Brennan, Braden, and Isabella Murray, Wes, Van, and Cal DaCosta.

Miki is predeceased by her husband of 23 years, Julian Murray, who passed away on July 13th, 1974, and her sister, Marge Thorsen.

A memorial service and celebration of Miki’s life and legacy will be held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Vero Chapel, 3980 12th Street, Vero Beach, FL 32960, on Saturday, April 29th, at 11:00 AM. Visitation to greet the family begins at 10:30 AM.
