December 2, 1913-March 27, 2013
Catherine "Cappa" Day Murff passed away on Wednesday, March 27, 2013, at the age of 99. She was born in Madisonville Texas on December 2, 1913, to Eula Kilpatrick Day and James McKenzie Day. Mom grew up in Madisonville where she met her future husband, Darrel Lamar Murff. They were married on September 28, 1933. They raised their family in West University and were active members of St Andrews Presbyterian Church. Cappa was a loving and devoted wife and mother. At the age of 56, with the death of her husband she lived in Normangee Texas near her two widowed sisters Esther Cozart and Marguerite Burke. She owned and ran the flower shop there for many years. Shortly after her 90th birthday she had a fall and spent the remainder of her life in St. Joseph Manor in Bryan Texas.
The family would like to acknowledge the loving care provided by the nurses and staff of St. Joseph's Manor. We are eternally grateful to Rosemary Mueller who was her guardian angel for many years. Special thanks for caring and kindness go out to her niece Glynda Cozart Smith and special friends Sydney Traylor, Lynda Lys, and Sandra Lea.

She was preceded in death by her husband, her parents, three sisters, a brother, and two grandchildren.
