Murphy; special niece, Martha Ellen Allen and husband, Dean; special nephew, Eddie Seabaugh and wife, Michelle; several nieces and nephews; great niece, Gracie Wall and husband, Ragan; great nephews, Grant Allen and George Allen; her very special second family, Eva Gamble and the Gamble family; special friends, Wanda and Darren Strong, Tammy and David Clark, and her church family at New Life Ministries.
