Murphy, Helen C. (1939? - 19 Feb. 2009)

Helen C. Murphy, 69, Marshfield, died Thur., Feb. 19, 2009, at the Marshfield Care Center.

"God saw she was getting tired,

and a cure was not to be.

So he put His arms around her

and whispered, "Come with Me".

With tearful eyes you watched her suffer

and saw her slowly fade away.

Although you loved her dearly,

you could not make her stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,

hard working hands put to rest.

God broke our hearts to prove to you

He only takes the best."

A memorial service will be held at 6 p.m. Sat. March 14, 2009, at the home of her daughter, Maureen, 3808 Pine Siskin Lane, Wausau, WI 54401.

Helen had been a graduate of Pittsville High School and Milwaukee Business College. She married Richard Murphy in April 1959. She was employed most recently as treasurer and office manager for Grundstrom Company in Glenview, Ill.

She is survived by a daughter, Maureen Murphy of Wausau; and a sister, Anna Marie Waters of Naperville, Ill. She is further survived by a niece, Elizabeth (Walt) Ryzner; a nephew, John (Nancy) Waters; a great-nephew, Adam Waters; and a great-niece, Aubrey Waters.

She was predeceased by her parents.

Helen's daughter would like to extend her heartfelt thanks to all the staff at the Marshfield Care Center, Saint Joseph's Hospital, The Lighthouse and the Marshfield Area Respite Care Center who took exceptional care of her during the course of her illness.
