Evelyn Murray-Bruce, wife of Ben Murray-Bruce, former senator representing Bayelsa east, has died, her husband announced on Friday in a tweet.

He said she died of cancer.

The former senator said he is broken and devastated by the passing of his wife of
43 years, who he described her as a “blessing” who “touched the lives of everyone she met”.

He tweeted. “I’m broken. Just lost my beautiful wife to cancer. She was my best friend for 43 years and my wife for 41 years. Cancer is real, but it shouldn’t be a death sentence – awareness, and early detection and treatment are key to survival. I miss her so so much. I’m broken,” he tweeted.

”Our children are devastated, I am too. But I have to be strong for them. Please put our family in your prayers. Like the sun, my wife was a blessing and touched the lives of everyone she met. Though she’s gone, she’d remain alive in our hearts forever.”
