Marilyn Lee Wiggins went to her eternal peace on June 9, 2024. She was born on November 5, 1936, to Will and Hilda (Happy) Bowman in Troy, Ohio. She was a graduate of Miami University of Ohio and also The Christ Hospital School of Nursing in Cincinnati.

She married Richard Keith Murphy, and their union was blessed with a daughter, Mary Ann Murphy. They moved to Dallas in 1964 where Marilyn was the nurse for Dr. Joel Steinberg’s practice for many years, and then for Dr. Albert Karam’s practice, finishing her career there well into her 70s.

Possessing a strong unshakeable faith, Marilyn lived a life close to God, family, and friends. She was a longtime and active member of Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church, where she served as an elder, deacon, and member of the Adult Choir and of the Women’s Circle. She was also a founding member and early leader of the CCPC Singles Group, leading many excursions and events.

Marilyn was an avid volunteer for a number of causes, including Meals on Wheels. She pursued many interests, including sewing and playing piano and the marimba. She loved to travel, especially with her daughter. Her family and friends remember her as cheerful and elegant, always bringing joy and laughter wherever she went, and always wearing a smile.

She was preceded in death by her parents and husband. Grieving her loss but cherishing her memory are her daughter and many beloved family members and friends.

A memorial service for Marilyn will be held at Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church, 3901 Northstar Road, Richardson, Texas, at 12:00 noon on Wednesday, June 26, followed by interment at Restland Cemetery. In lieu of cut flowers, the family suggests potted plants.
