In addition to her parents, Grace was preceded in death by her husband, Walter Gundolphus "Buddy" Murphree, Sr. and her son, Walter Gundolehus "Chip" Murphree, Jr, and 8 siblings. She leaves to cherish her memory her daughter, Nita McGreger (Earl), of Vardaman, MS, her son, Greg Murphree (Lee), of Tupelo, MS, seven grandchildren, Nicole Thomas (Elton), April McGreger. (Phil), Preston McGreger (Candi), Brooks Murphree, Reed Murphree, Katie Murphree, and Miles Murphree, as well as six great-grandchildren, Si Thomas, Cole Thomas, Mo
