Judy Murphy

Judy Murphy

Judy Ann Murphy passed from this life on May 9, 2023, at the Livingston County

Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation, Mt. Morris, NY, where she was graciously

received and had wonderful care the final months of her life. She waged a

courageous battle with her health almost 35 years. Judy was born on March 14, 1953,

to Richard David Murphy and Nancy Lee (McKee) Murphy, at Latrobe Hospital in

western Pennsylvania. Judy attended her early years of school in Pennsylvania and

moved with the family to upstate NY, where she graduated from Letchworth

Central High School.

Judy began a career as a nurse’s aide at 18 years of age serving in a nursing facility

in Castile, NY. She loved caring for the elderly. Also, during this time she studied

Bible classes for a while at Elohim Bible School. She helped care for our beloved

grandmother, Freda Murphy at Manor Oak Nursing Facility some years later in

Warsaw, NY. She served as a nurse’s aide for 20 years. After this time, she dedicated

herself to looking after the joys of her life, her two grandchildren, Tyler and Lily,

particularly in their primary years of school. She always tried to attend their various

involvements when able and would play board games with them, and was their

biggest fan.

Judy loved to laugh, had a lovely alto voice and sometimes sang solos in church

when she was younger, loved the water, vacations, country music, pretty flowers

and volunteering at Houghton Rehabilitation and Nursing Center for several years.

She very much enjoyed serving others and would do anything for anyone.

Judy is survived by her daughter April (Darren) Boynton of Warsaw, NY, grandson

Tyler Boynton, granddaughter Lily Boynton, Lifelong companion and friend, Kathy

Browne, sister Sandra (Murphy) Reimer, Cibolo, TX, brother Richard Murphy (Suzi),

of Clarksburg, PA, sister Kathy Bower of Fillmore, NY, Tim (Tracey) Murphy of GA.

Uncle and Aunt, David and Karen Murphy of Cabot, PA, and multiple nieces,

nephews, cousins, and friends. Judy was preceded in death by her parents.

of Life will be held on Sunday, May 21 at 1:30 at the Valley Chapel Fellowship Hall in
