June A. Murphy


"This is my beloved child, in whom I am well pleased." Matthew 3:17

June A. Murphy passed away peacefully in her sleep on January 28, 2017, she was 90 years old. June was a proud lifelong resident of Ballston Spa.

June was the oldest child, and only daughter, of Leo and June C. Murphy. She graduated from Ballston Spa High School. June enjoyed working with children and over the years provided daycare to dozens of local school kids.

June loved to knit and donated many baby blankets and hats throughout her life to local hospitals. She also loved to make sweaters for teddy bears.

June was a faithful Catholic and a member of St. Mary's Church. When she lived at 91 Church Ave., June asked her brother Ray to build a portable altar so mass could be said on site for those unable to attend church. While living at the nursing home June frequently prayed with and for others, especially in their final hours.

June is now joyfully reunited with her parents, brothers Thomas, Patrick and James and sister-in-law Linda. She will be fondly remembered and greatly missed by her brother Raymond, sisters-in-law Eleanor and Kay and many nieces and nephews.

The family wishes to thank June's many friends for their support and companionship over the years, especially Barbara and Mariann.

Services will be private at a later date. Contributions may be made to the Patrick M. Murphy Scholarship Fund, c/o Meg Lance, Awards Coordinator, Ballston Spa High School, 220 Ballston Ave., Ballston Spa, NY 12020.

I met this lovely and kind lady, June, when I came from South Texas to stay at Doubleday with my Mother for a week or two many times. We would eat lunch together. Many many years ago, June gave me an "Angel Coin" and I have carried it in my purse ever since. She was "Special"!
Our condolences to the family.
