Kyra Marie Murray, 23, passed away on Saturday January 14, 2023. Born on August 3, 1999 in Milford, she was the beloved daughter of David and Aileen Murray. Kyra was pursuing her passion of art attending Lesley University in Boston, Massachusetts.

She will always be remembered as someone with immense talent, humor and wit. Her personality lit up any room with every story or joke she told and her compassion and love was felt by anyone lucky enough to have crossed her path.
Kyra was also an incredibly talented artist, lover of anime and cosmetology. She put pride and hard work into every piece she drew or every eyelash she applied. Kyra’s talents and interests didn’t stop there. She had a love for all animals, especially her dogs Scarlet and Finn and her lizard Zul, She was an avid snowboarder from a young age. Yearly trips to the mountain with family and friends will be forever cherished. While she was only with us for a short time, her legacy and loss will be felt by many.
To quote the poem [I carry your heart with me (I carry it in] by E.E. Cummings, I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart) I am never without it (anywhere i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling)i fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) I want no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true) and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you.
