Betty Carolyn Murphy


Age 86, of Davison, formerly of Glennie, passed away on January 15, 2024, peacefully at home with her family. In accordance with her wishes, cremation has taken place. Expressions of sympathy may be shared with the family on Betty’s Tribute Wall at detroitcremationsociety.com. A memorial service will be held for her at a later date.

Betty Carolyn Murphy was born on January 1, 1938, in Middlesboro, Kentucky, the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Delbert and Edith (Lemar) Scott Sr. She was a faithful and active member of Glennie United Methodist Church and the Fraternal Order of Eagles for many years. She was also involved in MUCC and enjoyed camping, fishing, and hunting with her family and friends. She loved spending time with her family, every chance she could. She valued family dinners, especially those that brought several generations around the table. She could usually be found with a wordsearch on her lap or working on her latest puzzle, sometimes even with a little help from her great grandchildren. Unless it was baseball season, then she was busy cheering on her Tigers. Her warm and welcoming heart will be missed by all.

Betty is survived by her daughter, Marianne (Mike) Barnett, her stepchildren, Chuck Murphy Jr., and Charlotte Murphy, her brother, Joe Scott, several grandchildren and great grandchildren, her sister-in-law Dorothy Seni and several nieces and nephews.

Betty is preceded in death by her husband, Chuck Murphy Sr., her children, Diane Collins, Michael Kondrath, James Kondrath, and Daniel Kondrath, her granddaughters Rachel Kondrath and Heather Barnett, her grandson Bill Collins, her brother, and her sister.

    I will miss her terribly. I called her Gramma Betty and loved crocheting things for her for Christmas. We loved her very much. I am glad I was able to take my last trip to Pennsylvainia for reunion with her and my Great Aunt Dorothy years ago. I had so much fun. We love you Gramma, farewell until we see you again.
