She was a great cook and loved preparing dishes to share. Lela had a great fondness for the beach and was an avid country music fan. Her favorite artist was always Conway Twitty. Lela loved her family dearly and always cherished the time she was able to spend with them.

She is survived by her children, Tony McMurray, Biddie McMurray and Mike McMurray; grandchildren, Justin, Brandon, Christopher, Lela and Austin McMurray; sister, Freda Trussel and numerous nieces and nephews.
