Mary Pat Murphy
- Published: May 7, 2015
Mary Pat Murphy, age 87 of Fairborn, died May 2, 2015, in Dayton. Her husband Edward preceded her in death. Survived by children: Pat Chambers (Jerri), Chris Murphy (Susan) and Kevin Murphy (Lisa); grandchildren Will, Meghan, Jill, Sean, Ryan and great-grandson Connor.
A member of Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Fairborn, she leaves a host of church friends and close neighbors who were instrumental in her care and well-being. We wish to give a special thanks to the doctors and the staff on the Heart and Vascular Intensive Care unit at the Miami Valley Hospital.
A military spouse, Mary served alongside her husband, who was active duty for 35 years, moving her family many times and always managing the change with a smile. She set up a home in each country she was in and made friends with any and all people she came into contact with.
She was a great mom and will be sorely missed.
The family received friends on Tuesday May 5, at the Belton-Stroup Funeral Home in Fairborn. A funeral service was held on Wednesday, May 6, at the Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Fairborn, with Pastor Arthur M. Casci officiating, followed by entombment in the Byron Cemetery Mausoleum.
