Followed by a Celebration of Life at Boardwalk Grill (formerly Woody’s) @ Discovery Bay Marina 4pm until 7 or so

I am so sad to report that Virginia Murney, wife to Ken Murney, and owner of Discovery Bay’s Woody’s Bar & Grill (now named Boardwalk Grill), drowned last night in a tragic accident off her dock on Windward Point , the details of which are still unknown.  A beautiful, always smiling, young woman, who was loved by many.  She will be missed enormously.

Please, feel free to add your comments, thoughts and feelings here – to share with her family, and each other…

Services are being planned. We will post that information when it becomes available.
