On Saturday afternoon, July 24, 2010, Wynona Patricia “Tricky” Thompson Murphy entered into her eternal reward at the age of 74. Her life was an example to all of how to live as a Proverbs 31 woman. She was born July 12, 1936 in New Kirk, Oklahoma to the late Earl and Beulah Thompson. Pat was preceded in death by her husband Carlos “Scoots” Murphy.
Pat is survived by her children, David Murphy and wife Peggy, Tim Murphy and wife Judy, Steven Murphy and wife Brenda, James Murphy and wife Alicia, and Tiffany Murphy Sheldt and husband Lee; eleven grandchildren; eleven great-grandchildren; numerous other relatives and a host of friends.
We, her children, are honored by the great legacy that has been given. Although we grieve our loss, we take such comfort in knowing that not only is she with her Lord and Savior, but that both of our parents now walk hand in hand down streets of gold.; no longer hindered by diseased and broken bodies. Praise God, they have been made whole!
The family will receive friends Tuesday, July 27th, from 5:00am until 8:00pm at Niday Funeral Home. The service celebrating Pat’s life will be Wednesday, July 28th, at 10:00am at Christian Temple Church, 9701 Almeda-Genoa in Houston. Interment will follow at Forest Park East Cemetery.
