She traveled with her husband on cruises and bus trips to visit many new places. Lillian was an avid fisherman, never turning down the opportunity to fish or crab. She also enjoyed sewing, quilting, crocheting and crafting. Bill and Lillian were both master gardeners, the fruits of their labors were enjoyed by the whole family. Lillian loved her family. She is survived by her children Mary D. Kennedy, William T. Murphy III, Wayne M. Murphy and Nancy M. Bourne. She is also survived by fifteen grandchildren and twenty-one great-grandchildren. Lillian is finally at peace after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. She is reunited with her beloved husband and daughter Sharon L. Powell.
