Erin Marie Murphy Obituary
May 26, 1961 - January 12, 2016 Erin was raised in Pasadena and graduated from St. Philip School, Alverno Heights Academy, Pasadena City College and Cal State University at Northridge. She served for many years as a nurse at Huntington Memorial Hospital and as a high school nurse. She summered with family on Balboa Island growing up and studied a year abroad in Ireland. She played guitar and had a lovely singing voice. She had a nearly encyclopedic knowledge of basketball teams. She would become the youngest resident at the Pasadena Highlands Independent and Assisted Living facility, where she and her mother both had apartments. Not letting her diabetes or need for dialysis constrain her, Erin managed the library, served as Vice President of the Residents Association, joined in weekly at a game called Skimpo, and went on nearly all of the excursions available. The unique mother-daughter team of Marion and Erin was exceptional at a senior facility. Erin's ailments seemed to invite a mother's attention while Erin's consistent presence provided her mother with constant companionship. She is survived by her brothers Timothy, David and Kevin and her sister Marianne. Her father, Timothy Ignatius Murphy, passed away in 1988 and her mother Marion Scott Murphy passed away on November 30th, 2016. Erin Marie Murphy along with her mother Marion Scott Murphy will be remembered on Monday December 12th at a 9:30 AM Mass at St. Philip the Apostle Church, 151 South Hill Avenue in Pasadena followed by a celebration of life in the parish hall. Condolence emails sent to [email protected] will be forwarded to all close family. Cabot & Sons, Pasadena
