Gerda Kay Glick Murray

July 23, 1937 — February 17, 2024

Logan, Utah

Our beautiful, sassy, wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother Gerda Kay (Glick) Murray, 86, died peacefully on February 17th, surrounded by her family at Rocky Mountain Care after fighting health problems and pain for many years. 

Gerda was born in Sheridan Montana to Robert and Katherine Glick on July 23, 1937. She was the oldest of five children. Gerda grew up in the beautiful outdoors of Montana, in a small town, fishing, camping, going to Virginia City for work and play and hanging out with siblings. Gerda graduated from Sheridan High in 1955 and moved to Great Falls, where she went to Nurses’ Training at Columbus. She found her true passion as a natural nurse and healer. 

After receiving her Nursing Degree she lived with her sister Doris( Lagaly) in Butte until she moved to Hayden Arizona, another small town, to work at the Hayden Clinic. It was there she met her husband to be, Donald Joseph Murray. They married August 5th, 1961. She continued working for two years as a nurse until the birth of their first daughter, Deon. Then their second daughter Coleen, and son Douglas,were added to their family. When their youngest was just 3 months old Donald was transferred to Salt Lake City, Utah to work for Kennecott Copper. They bought a home for their family in Bountiful and lived until 1994 when they moved to Logan, Utah. 

Gerda was one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. She became a member after moving to Bountiful. She served faithfully and wholeheartedly for the rest of her life. She has many friends in both the Bountiful and Logan congregations. She was loved by all. 

Gerda was always ready to help people in any way she could, she was known for her ability to let you know what vitamins you needed and had an extensive knowledge of how emotions affect your health and wellbeing. She studied ways for more natural healing and raised her kids on no white sugar, white bread or cold cereal, believing in only whole foods, balanced meals and hot breakfasts. She loved to cook and prepare meals for her family, her

grandkids loved when she would make special meals for them. Feeding family was her love language and it was always presented with a set up table and all the sides in beautiful serving dishes. 

Gerda loved to crochet and wanted every grandchild, child and great grandchild to have a blanket she made. She could sew, type 100 words a minute on a manual typewriter, and had beautiful cursive writing and printing that was always exact. Don told a story of when he was first dating her, he would go to the hospital when she worked at nights and play cards with her. He said she was a “tiny little thing but very strong. A man came into the clinic to be treated and was drunk. He started being mean and aggressive so Gerda grabbed his shirt with both fists and shoved him up against a wall.” Don just laughed saying “that guy calmed right down and I didn’t need to do a thing.” 

She is preceded in death by her parents Robert and Katherine Glick, her sister and best friend, Doris Lagaly her brother in law Dick Lagaly., Her brothers Denny and Joe Glick and her sister in law Dolly Glick 

She is survived by her husband Donald Murray, her youngest brother and “Last of the Mohicans” as he calls himself, Dean (Darlene) Glick of Alaska.

Her family would like to thank Dr Richard Stevens for his continuous care and support getting her the help she needed, listening to her daughter and husband and then his insisting on an admit to the Cache Valley Hospital. Also, a thank you to The North Logan paramedic team that helped her with a non-emergency transfer to the hospital from her home, making sure she was comfortable and safe.
