Delores Murdock Obituary, A University of Chicago member Has Passed Away

Delores Murdock Obituary, Death – Dolores M. Murdock, also known as “Dee,” passed away on September 20, 2020, at the age of 90. She was a resident of Shelton, Washington. On May 16th, 1930, Dee was born in Dorenlee, which is located in Alberta, Canada. When she was a little kid, she moved to the region of the Pacific Northwest that encompasses Oregon and Washington.

In 1965, Dee wed James Murdock, and a few years later, the couple established their home in Shelton. Both Dee and Jim were big fans of the chicken and jojos, as well as the cold beer, that Bob’s Tavern served up. She put forth a lot of effort, had a humble demeanor, and considered herself a “lumber woman.”

Dee has a habit of considering her acquaintances and neighbors to be family. She cherished the time she spent with her loved ones and was known for baking delicious treats like fudge and cookies especially for the holidays. She cherished each of her grandchildren deeply and made it a habit to send them off with a sweet treat or a unique keepsake whenever she visited them.

Dee is survived by her brother-in-law Joyce Thornberg and her partner, Bob Kundracik; her son Wayne Sandvig; her daughter Sandra Kelloniemi; her daughter-in-law Rita Golden and her son-in-law Jim Peirsee; nine grandchildren and eight great grandchildren; and her sister-in-law, Dee Peirsee. Dee passed away on April 15, 2018.

Her husband, James Murdock, her brother Ken Cornelius, her sister Doreen Matthews, her daughter Linda Piersee, her sons Warren and Jeff Sandvig, and her brother-in-law, Harry Thornberg all passed away before her. She was also predeceased by her daughter Linda Piersee.

The family would like to express their gratitude to close friends and neighbors who have been there for Dee throughout the years. Regardless of the work at hand, whether it was mending something or delivering her flowers, it was completed without hesitation. We are in deep gratitude to you!

There will not be a memorial service held because Dee’s wishes were honored and because of Covid-19. At Tahoma National Cemetery, she rests in peace next to the man who was the love of her life. Everyone who cared for them is urged to pay them a visit whenever they get the chance.
