Annie K. Murphy (Fingerhut)

Annie K. Murphy, 90, of Meadowbrook, passed away Thursday, September 15, 2022. She was the beloved wife of the late John T. Murphy, Jr.

Born May 20, 1932 in Philadelphia, she was the daughter of the late Frank and Ava Fingerhut and sister to Nick (Anna) and Michael (Teresa) Fingerhut.
