Maryanne Murphy

Obituary of Maryanne S. Murphy

Maryanne Stadnicki Murphy, 89, passed away at home on Monday, November 8 after a long illness. She is survived by her beloved children Kevin (Colleen), Janine (Dean) Kyburz, Peter, and Trace (Amy); grandchildren Aubrey, Max, Casey, Mariel (Tim), Maggie (Scott), Shannon, Haley, Luke, Jack, and Charlie; great-grandsons Owen and Jayden; and her dearly loved nieces, nephews, cousins, and many friends. She was predeceased by her husband Thomas, brother Jack, and sister Natalie. Maryanne was born January 6, 1932 in Shamokin, PA to the late John & Agnes Stadnicki. She graduated from Geisinger Hospital Nursing School in 1952 and then served as a stewardess for American Airlines, based in Dallas and later in Boston. It was in Boston that she met Thomas J. Murphy, who had just begun his career in educational publishing with McGraw-Hill. They married in 1956 and as their family grew and opportunities changed, they went on to live in New York, New Jersey, and Missouri. After moving to Connecticut, she continued her education at Fairfield University and received her BSN in 1986. Central to Maryanne’s life was family, intellectual curiosity, her heritage as a Polish-American, and most importantly her faith. The local parish in each place she lived was an extension of home and family, and personal devotions were her source of strength. To the many people whose lives she touched, Maryanne will always be remembered for her unshakable love for all people and for her quiet - sometimes silent - acts of generosity and compassion. Funeral services for Maryanne will be held Friday (Nov. 12) starting at 9AM from the Farrell Funeral Home, 110 Franklin Sq. New Britain followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 10AM at St. Paul’s Church, 485 Alling St. Berlin. Burial will follow in St. Mary’s Cemetery, 1141 Stanley St. New Britain. Visitation will be held Thurs (Nov. 11) from 5:00 – 7:00PM at the funeral home.
