Murneth June Fast, 78, El Dorado Springs, went to be with her Lord and Savior on May 7, 2024.

Murnie was born Dec. 9, 1945, in Montevallo to Russell and Reba (Miller) Ingram. Her family moved several times as a child and she graduated from El Dorado Springs High School with the class of 1963. Murnie was saved at the age of 12 at Mount Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church in Buffalo, MO.

She lived down the road from the boy that picked on her. When Pete got back from the Navy, she thought that he was alright, and the rest was history. They got married on Feb. 28, 1964. To this union four children were born: Christi, Gregory, Steven and Felicia.

She loved cooking, gardening and sewing, but her true joy was taking care of her grandbabies. She was very dedicated to the Lord, and she showed dedication to her church family at Pacetown.

Murnie was preceded in death by her parents; siblings: Stan Ingram, Bonnie Noblitt and Jerry Ingram; grandson, Nathaniel Sutton; and great-granddaughter, KJ Stephens.

Murnie is survived by her husband, Pete; children: Christi (David) Benham, Gregory Fast, Steve (Donna) Fast and Felicia (Johan) De Klein; brother, Bill Ingram; grandchildren: Seth Sutton, Mandi (Joel) Stephens, Justin Swager, Trevor (tera) Fast, Ethan (Nancy) Fast, and Arraya Fast; and great-grandchildren: Caysen Stephens, Kale Stephens, Charli Stephens, Kole Stephens, Cameron Anderson, Harper Fast, Tanner, Malachi, Maverick Sutton, Kenzi Swager and Kyle Swager, Sophia Fast, Isaac Fast.
