A Legacy of Love: Remembering Muriel E. West Durley

Jan 26, 2021 | Blog, What's New

The greatest legacy one can pass on to one’s children and grandchildren is not money or other material things accumulated in one’s life, but rather a legacy of character and faith. —Billy Graham

Muriel E. West Durley was a beautiful woman, a devoted wife, a loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, a dedicated First Lady, an intentional educator, a skilled entrepreneur, and a faithful servant. She was an exemplary servant-leader who radiated humility, compassion, generosity, and she always spoke the truth with love.

Lady Durley used her gifts and talents to plant many seeds that would bear fruit in different seasons of her life. Whether it was working in ministry alongside her husband, Reverend Dr. Gerald Durley, educating and equipping elementary school kids for lifelong learning, developing her craft as an artisan, loving on those who have been downtrodden, and raising her children to follow her legacy of love, Muriel Durley was a great woman of God, and the ripple effects of her presence on this earth will be felt for generations to come.

A legacy of love goes on and endures forever. Muriel will always be within our hearts and the many others that loved her.
