Murphy, Alice  
Murphy, Alice Alice Murphy (Alice Luczejko) born in Philadelphia, PA in 1920, died January 8, 2015, Doylestown, PA at the age of 95. Alice was born of Ukrainian immigrants (Julia and Tony). She was the last survivor of their five children (Anne, Sophie, Julie, Alice and John). Her family home was in Sayre PA. After graduating high school, Alice moved to Ithaca, NY to join her eldest sister Anne as a hairdresser for the Updike Salon, where Alice continued to work until she was seventy. Shortly after moving to Ithaca, Alice met Bill on a blind date. In 1941 they began their 73 years of marriage. Within a couple of months Pearl Harbor triggered Bill's involvement in the army. Bill was shipped overseas for World War II as an airplane mechanic. They spent their honeymoon in Atlantic City in a hotel that later became a barrack where Bill was housed during his training. Alice and Bill were active in their Ithaca community where they raised their three daughters. They were members of the Catholic Church and Bill was a member of the volunteer fire department and a member of the Elk's Lodge. They always had neighbors who became close friends. Bill's extended family also lived in Ithaca, and Alice always remained close to her sisters and brother. Extended family gatherings have always been an important part of Alice's life. There were summer vacations on Cayuga Lake, picnics at the state parks, gatherings at lake cottages, visits to Eldridge Park. Holidays were always a time for family to come together at various family homes. After the children were grown, Alice and Bill went on road trips with Alice's sisters and brother, always maintaining a close relationship. As the years went by Alice became the matriarch of the family, and nieces, cousins and friends gathered at her home to celebrate holidays. Later in life Alice became an accomplished artist. She delighted many people with her wonderful painted boxes, trays and artwork. Six years ago Alice and Bill moved to Wesley / Heritage community in Doylestown, PA to be near their daughter Jan. Her artwork was displayed in the lobby of Wesley / Heritage during a collective show in the fall of 2014. Alice was spirited and loved. During her time in Doylestown she develop close relationships with many caregivers, including Brenda, Glen, Elona, Jeanette, the nurses in skilled nursing (Terri, Mary, Carol, Linda) and many more wonderful people. During her last few days she was assisted by the Grandview Hospice. The family will be eternally grateful for all the people who cared for her and the loving kindness they showed. Alice is survived by her husband, Bill, who lives at Wesley Enhanced Living in Doylestown; her daughters, Gail Florian of Gladstone, OR, Carol Murphy of Carbondale, CO, and Jan Murphy of Carversville, PA and their husbands; her grandson, Frank Florian of Gladstone, OR; and many nieces, nephews cousins and friends.
