Ann attended Wellesley College with me.  She was a gifted writer.  I know she lived In Evanston for a while before moving to Colorado where I think one of her children lived.  She was a brilliant yet humble woman with the sweetest twinkle in her eyes.  Thank you for letting me know of her passing. I wish the best to all her family.

Classmates:  Katie Eskra, the elder of Anne Murray Eskra's two daughters, sent this a few days after Anne died.     You might want to go to the Caringbridge website to share memories of Anne so that all of her community can read them.  See below.

Dear Friends and Family,
We have created this online space to connect Anne Murray Eskra's community, provide a place to share memories, and add information as we decide on memorial and donation plans.

P.S. Caringbridge is a free nonprofit site. You do need to register to access it, but that seems mostly a mechanism to prevent spam from open access. I have been registered with them for several years and never get unwanted emails as a result.

Anne was a friend at Skokie School and Camp Douglas Smith.  She was always a smiling, fun loving presence.

I know she will be missed by all who knew her over the years.

I am very saddened to learn today of Anne Murray's passing.  She was such a lovely person, so kind and warm, and she had a maturity and understanding that made her unusual among her peers.  I can visualize her tall, lanky father and a little bit her elegant mother, and her brother Gordon, on whom my younger sister Laurel had a crush.  They lived on Tower Rd., I believe, and we lived on Bryant Ave.  I did not see Anne beyond graduation from N.T., but she is a memorable person from my youth in Winnetka, someone who brings a warm glow of affection.       Sally Sherman
