Murline was a homemaker and kept books for their business. She and her husband farmed near Holliday, MO. She recorded that they lived in thirteen locations, before retiring in Paris. Many moves involved work finding rock for the Hamilton Lime and Rock Crusher business. She enjoyed time with her family, visiting with friends, collecting antiques, attending antique car shows with her husband, traveling and giving generously to her community. For over twenty-five years she saved aluminum can tabs for the Ronald McDonald House in Columbia. She continued that hobby while at the Manor and collected over 10 gallons. Plans are to continue the collection in her memory at the Manor. Murline was a faithful member of the Paris United Methodist Church and at the time of her death the oldest living member.
