DANVERS, MA - It is with sad and heavy hearts that the family of Margaret ( Magee) Fleming Murphy says goodbye to her, who in life, gave, and gave of herself. Magee died very unexpectedly Friday night.
Her family and friends were blessed to have had her in their midst for 72 years.
Magee leaves behind her husband Paul; her two daughters; Maureen McCarthy, and her husband, Jim, of Milford, N.H., and Leah Dyleski, of Danvers; Paul's son, Eric Murphy, of Kensington, N.H., his wife Laurie, and their daughter, Sarah, Paul's daughter, Diana Murphy, of Peabody. Magee leaves three grandchildren, Christopher McCarthy, of Milford, N.H., Courtney McCarthy, of Cambridge, and Hannah Grenier, and her husband, Casey, of Colorado Springs.
Magee is also part of a large family, being the fourth of nine children, loved and nurtured by her late parents, Margaret and Eugene Fleming, of Methuen. She leaves her brothers, Bob, and his wife, Mary, of Methuen, Ted, and his wife, Ethel, of Londonderry, N.H., sister, Cathy Fleming, of Danvers, Lori Fleming, of Lowell, Rita-Gene Landers, and her husband, Bill, of Ocala, Fla., Michel Phaneuf, and her husband, Marc, of Hudson, N.H., Christine Lees, and her husband, Bobby, of Londonderry, N.H., and the late MaryBeth Fleming, of Salisbury. "Auntie Gee " also leaves numerous nieces and nephews and grand nieces and nephews. We were all blessed to have her in our lives.
