We are heartbroken to announce the passing of Morag Ross McMurray Tierney after a brief battle with Interstitial Lung Disease. She passed away peacefully on the evening of Monday February 22, 2021 with her daughter Caroline by her side at TBRHSC.

Morag was born May 29, 1944 in Glasgow, Scotland, she married Felix (Phil) on October 15, 1964 and emigrated to Canada in 1967 with her infant daughter Caroline to join her loving husband and begin their life in St. Catharines, Ontario. Morag moved with her family to Thunder Bay in 1978. Morag stayed at home to raise her 3 beautiful daughters and then began her career as a Personal Support Worker for Community Living Thunder Bay and worked there until she retired. In her retirement, Morag greatest joy was spending time with her family and her beloved cat Missy. She enjoyed driving out to see the deer at Mission Marsh, travelling either by car or air, blue cheese, gardening, reading and watching MASH.

In 2018 Morag recommitted her life to the Salvation Army. She enjoyed the fellowship, attending services, Bible studies, going to the Women’s Retreat and loved volunteering during the Christmas Kettle Season.

This spirited and generous lady will be missed by all who knew her, but will never be forgotten. Morag will be lovingly remembered by her daughters, Caroline, Fiona and Stephanie and by her son-in-law Christopher (Her Boy). She is survived by her sister Fiona (John) Coia, her brother Colin (Helen) McMurray, sister-in-law’s Irene McMurray and Rena Hughes. She will be forever missed by her nieces and nephews: Stephen (Leanne, Abbie) Coia, Alison Coia, David (Laura, Arran) McMurray, Claire (John, Noah) Doyle, Shona (Edward, Brittany) Panek, Ed McMurray and Maria (Joe, Ryan) Kennedy.

Morag was predeceased by her loving husband of almost 52 years, Felix (Phil) in 2016, their son in infancy, her loving parents Walter and Nancy McMurray, in-laws William and Rose Tierney, her brother Ian McMurray and her nephews Christopher McMurray and Michael Hughes.

We would like to thank the paramedics, doctors, respiratory therapists and especially the nurses of the ICU and 2B for their loving care and compassion of our wonderful Mum. We would also like to thank Captain Matt Sheils of the Salvation Army for comforting and praying with Morag. A huge thank you to our wonderful sister Caroline for taking the time off work to sit and care for our brave, strong Mum and for keeping us all updated.

Cremation has taken place and a celebration of Morag’s life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Salvation Army Community Church in Thunder Bay would be greatly appreciated.

I was saddened to read about Morag's passing. She was good friends with my grandmother Wanda (who passed away awhile ago). Later I got to work with her at CLTB. I always enjoyed her company. She always made me laugh. Although I haven't seen Morag in years, I can still hear her voice and her laugh. She will be remembered as a straight forward, brutally honest person who was unable to keep any opinion secret. LOL.
My condolences to her family and loved ones, Morag was one of the good ones.

As I sit and hold your hand...

As I sit and hold your hand it feels so small in mine, I wish that I could hold it until the end of time.
As I sit and hold your hand memories how they flood, of happy times, cheerful times and that one time I called mugs MUD.
As I sit and hold your hand praying with all my might, that you’ll be fine, you’ll be healed that things will turn out right.
As I sit and hold your hand fighting back the tears, of days gone by, of days ahead trying not to worry or show fears.
As I sit and hold your hand not knowing what’s ahead, I try my best to show my face without any dread.

I remember when you held my hand on the escalator so high,
I remember when you held my hand when to Dad we said goodbye.
I remember when you held my hand as the Carousel went round,
I remember when you held my hand as we walked into town.
I remember when you held my hand as the airplane it flew,
I remember when you held my hand when I was feeling blue.
I remember when you held my hand when I was full of fright,
I remember when you held my hand and I knew everything would be alright!

As I sit and hold your hand watching every breath, not knowing what will happen or how much time there is left.
As I sit and hold your hand watching MASH all day, it’s handy when it’s on cause I know not what to say.
As I sit and hold your hand we drink, smile and laugh, taking silly photos cause we both know I am daft!
As I sit and hold your hand I talk to God and pray, I pray for your healing and for this to go away.
As I sit and hold your hand in God I stand strong, I know that He will see me through I think I have known all along.
As I sit and hold your hand know there is nothing God can’t do, know that He is here and He is looking after you!!
