Celebrating 75 years!


The Murray Insurance Agency was founded in 1944 by brothers, Guy and Owen Billington.
They designed this business with the intent of it becoming a multi-generation endeavor, while keeping “protecting our community” as the primary focus.
Employing family and friends, The Murray Insurance Agency has been home to Owen’s daughter and son-in-law, Mary and Dan Shipley; along with Guy’s son, Bob Billington.

These days, the owners and principal agents are Jason Billington, Bob’s son (Guy’s grandson) and John Purdom, his friend who grew up across the street. Jason has been at the agency since 1996 and John since 1997. They are both from Murray with strong ties to the community. They are proud to be able to serve their friends and family.

Chandler Purdom, John’s daughter, who started working at the agency in 2015 and Jonathan Carter, Jason’s son, who started in 2018, are proud to join the ranks of their forefathers and continue the legacy of integrity, honesty, professionalism, and friendliness in insurance, that was created by the Billington brothers 75 years ago. Working alongside them, Diane Lilly has been with the agency since 1990. Tara Burkeen started in 2000 and Donna Marquardt in 2007. With over 100 years of experience between them, The Murray Insurance Agency team are equipped to take care of your insurance needs.

Over the years, the Murray Insurance Agency has continued to grow and adapt. We still have that hometown, community friendly and professional mindset, but at the same time are equipped to handle the risks that have come with modern times. We have been able to modernize our procedures and business to serve you in the most seamless way possible, while maintaining our roots and keeping your best interests at the forefront of our business.
