Linda B. Murphy moved to Toledo as a teenager and, after completing her secondary education at DeVilbiss High School, earned her baccalaureate, masters, and PhD degrees in education at the University of Toledo.  Her professional career was dedicated to public education, having worked in a variety of positions ranging from high school math/physiology teacher, guidance counselor and school psychologist to university professor, administrator, and dean.  In these capacities, she received a variety of awards, including outstanding alumna for service at the University of Toledo.

As a life-long Presbyterian, Linda participated in a variety of service activities over the years.  Her most recent church affiliation was at Eastminster United Presbyterian Church in Toledo, where she served as teacher, choir member, and Elder.

Linda and her late husband, Dr. Charles (Charlie) Murphy, raised two children, Charles Jr. (Zoellen - deceased), and Mary Anne (Roger Davis).  They, in turn, awarded their parents with the love and companionship of seven grandchildren and five great grandchildren!

Over the years, Linda's hobbies and favorite activities have ranged from handling her bullmastiff dogs in the show ring to boating, bowling, swimming, duplicate bridge, travel, and sharing her favorite American folk tunes on the accordion.

There will be a Memorial Service for Linda at Eastminster Presbyterian Church on Saturday, May 21, 2022, at 1:00PM.
