    She had a full life, did things right. She had Ninty Nine years of Earthy time, an Amazing journey she walked. I felt bad that she did not have a obituary, so I decided to at least honor this beautiful child of God.

    To Sherri and family; it is with deep sympathy, understanding and compassion that I cherished the memory of my last first cousin Mamie Lee Murphy. It was a delight to be in her company as we celebrated life throughout the years. I relished the visits of joyfulness both in Oklahoma City and California. Mamie was so blessed to live a long, prosperous and healthy life. Mamie was exceptional in her love of life and family and I am going to grieve for her unique and distinctive personality. I have come to understand that earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot mend. May God bless you in this hour of need and you will be in our thoughts and prayers. Anna and I will certainly not forget you. You are in God’s hands now and until we meet again rest in peace!
