Karen Murray 1962 - 2006

Karen Murray's family has asked me to announce that Karen Passed away Thursday, August 10, 2006 at Toronto General Hospital. Funeral arrangements are being finalized and will be announced shortly.

This photo of Karen with her husband Victor Chadi was taken at West Park Hospital during a course of rehabilitation.

She received a double-lung transplant November 24, 2001 and a recent setback necessitated Karen being admitted to hospital.

Karen will be sadly missed by all who knew her. A filmmaker by profession, Karen left a legacy of films about her transplant experience and we will have that to remember her by.

Please join me in expressing our sincere condolences and sympathy to Karen's family.

Hi Merv:
I just got the e-mail regarding Karen. I am so sad to hear of her passing. Karen was in the bed next to me while she was fighting an infection. I would see her on occasion while in for my various assessments and she was still having problems. I would like to send my deepest condolences to her family and she made my life richer for knowing her. She will be missed greatly.
