Patricia Ann Murphy, age 84, of Buffalo, peacefully joined her Lord on May 29, 2015.

Pat was raised in St. Paul and married Edward Murphy in June, 1967. She was blessed with two sons, Tim & Jeff. Pat & Ed raised their boys on Lake Pulaski in Buffalo. Pat loved to read by the lake & watch their boys swim. She loved spending as much time as possible with them & later, with their families. Pat had a heart as sweet as sugar; always so kind, loving, caring, faith filled, positive, generous & selfless. She had many hobbies including knitting, crocheting & volunteering. She was always looking for yarn for her many projects! She made Christmas stockings, blankets, shawls, mittens & scarves for her grandchildren, and other children in need. Her grandkids always looked forward to seeing Grandma Pat because “she had the best snacks & always played games with us!” We can all hear Pat laughing in the heavens & know she is flying free with our Lord & all other family members & friends that have passed before her.

She is preceded in death by husband, Edward, and parents John and Bertha Then.

Pat is survived by sons, Tim (Angie) Murphy and Jeff (Jill) Murphy; grandchildren: Tara, Maia, Mitchell, Alison, Megan, Sarah and Grace; sister, Joan McCann.

    Grace Murphy, Everyone here at Rainbow’s End is very sorry that you have lost your Grandmother! We are all sending you prayers of strength. Hoping thru this time of sadness you will also remember and feel her love that surrounds you for the rest of your life!

    Our prayers are with you. We fondly remember Pat and Ed next door to our cabin. Pat would laugh when our then-young children got excited over catching a ‘feeshy”. Gordon and I still refer to their house as the “Murphy house”! What a wonderful lady Pat was!

    I had the pleasure of working with your mom at the High school. Many good memories working together and of the stories she shared and the laughter we shared together. We always told her she should write a book on her life. She knew true joy and happiness. My sincere sympathies.
