On the afternoon of July 3, 2020, Starr Murie passed away in the arms of her loving husband after a fight with cancer. Starr Joanne Ansley was born on February 5, 1941 to Edwina Keller and William John Ansley. She was born in Toronto, Canada and was always very proud of her Canadian heritage. Her grandmother aka “Nanny” was a big part of Starr’s life, spending many of her growing up years with her.
She married Leigh Snyder and had 2 daughters Amber and Angel.
Her parents were both performers, her father being a clown, so when Starr was asked to meet a couple of “clowns” from a visiting circus, she was excited to do so. She met Kevin Murie and this developed into a friendship and love that lasted for over 35 years. They were married on November 11, 1988. In 1996 they moved to the Cedar City, Utah area.
Starr had a great flair for clothes and was always a classy dresser. She had fun and attractive outfits, often with a styling hat.

Starr had a great love of animals, and could never stand to see any animal being abused or in pain. There were always animals in their home, many pets with problems that kept them from being adopted by others.

Starr is survived by her husband Kevin Murie, and extended family. Also by her daughters, Amber (Paul) of Simi Valley, CA and Angel Snyder of Victoria Canada.

I can’t promise that I’ll be here for the rest of your life…but I can promise that I’ll love you for the rest of mine.

Kevin so sorry to her about Starr's passing. She was a special person as you know. I'm glad I was able to meet her and get to know her a little bit. You were lucky to have such a devoted mate all this years. Your love for each other will never end. With Sympathy Gary and Deb

Starr was a great friend of mine, she was always there for me. We talked almost everyday and sometimes for hours. Starr always talked about writing a book about her life and adding some of my stories in there, but we both decided it would be to X rated to publish. She loved her animals, they will miss her. Well, my friend rest in peace, drop by and visit with me.
