Two lifelong friends, Barbara Grant and Andrea Brumfield, held special places in her heart. She graduated from Bakersfield High School in 1961, and later earned an Associate's Degree in Political Science from Bakersfield College. Although born in Oklahoma, Murlene lived her life in Bakersfield until 2001, when she and her husband Dannie moved to Bodfish, California. Murlene loved gardening and making her home a show place. She loved playing the penny slots and spent many enjoyable hours with friends visiting local casinos. But her greatest joy was being with her family, especially her grandchildren. She was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, and grandmother. She was tremendously loved and will be greatly missed. Hillcrest Memorial Park & Mortuary
