CRAFTSBURY COMMON – It is with great sadness that the family of Lucia Anwandter Murphy announce her passing on April 27, at 94. Lucia, a longtime resident of Craftsbury Common, was predeceased by her beloved husband, John, and by her son, Anthony. She is survived by her children, Peter Murphy and his wife Donelle of Cambridge, Mass., Kathleen Murphy of Miami Shores, Fla., Clare Knight of Jacksonville, Fla., and Anne McGowan and her husband Michael of Kinnelon, N.J., and many grandchildren.
Born in Valparaiso, Chile, Lucia loved to travel and spent much of her adult life exploring the globe with her husband and children before retiring in Vermont. Lucia’s passion for life was evident in her beautiful gardens, delicious meals, and her curiosity about all things, especially music and books. She enjoyed the company of family and friends.
A Requiem Mass will be celebrated in memory of Lucia on Friday, May 5, at 10 a.m., at Our Lady of Fatima Church, Craftsbury, with Fr. Christopher Knight presiding.
