Margie was born August 31, 1921 in Houston County to the late Carmi Adus and Mary Alice Marse Kirkland. She possessed an optimistic attitude and always looked on the bright side. You could say her glass was always half full. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends and like every southern lady, loved cooking for them. Margie retired from Van Heusen after many years of dedicated service. Above all else, she loved going to church and now she will dwell in the house of her Lord forever. 


In addition to her parents, her husband, Albert P. Murphy; two sons-in-law:  Ray Ward and Dan Wack; three brothers and three sisters preceded her in death.

This seems so impersonal, but it's the best I can do since I'm sick. I hope you all know how much I loved Mrs. Murphy! Her huge smile always warmed my heart when I saw her. I've been praying for all of you as you grieve your loss.

Dear family,
I am so sorry for the physical pain you all are enduring but there has got to be some solace in the fact that we all know she has now re-joined her husband and other family members who passed before. her life was an example for all of us to live by. She was a wonderful person and will be missed . Just think what an Angel god brought home with her! She is in a mansion filled with no more hurt! I Love You all!

God Bless !
