The death has occurred of Josephine (Pidgie) Murray (née McTague)
Born in Aughnasheelin, County Leitrim, Ireland on March 7th, 1937 and lovingly known as Pidgie, peacefully departed for heaven on July 17th, 2022. After studying nursing and working as a nurse midwife in London, she emigrated to Sunnyside, NY where she married the love of her life and best friend, Pat. They were married for 54 years, spending their time between 47th Street, Breezy Point, and traveling near and far. Always very interested in sports, she found great joy in her grandchildren's successes on the field, rink, court, diamond and dance stage. Very active in Queen of Angels Parish and the Leitrim Society of NY, Pidgie had many friends whom she enjoyed spending countless hours chatting with, over a pot of tea or on the phone. Pidgie is adored by her husband Pat and their family, Deirdre, Hugh, Colin and Aisling always, Raymond, Paton, Quinn and Brody, Brian, Anna, Alexis, Gavin and Patrick, her sister Rosemary & family, the McTague family, and many more extended family, and friends, who've become family. We are grateful to know she's at peace, enjoying eternal life with her granddaughter Aisling, and all those predeceased, who were so very dear to her. Visitation will be Tuesday, July 19 from 3-5PM & 7-9PM at Edward D. Lynch Funeral Home, Inc, 43-07 Queens Boulevard, Sunnyside, NY.
