Jeanette P. Murphy, 70, died on Dec. 19.
Beloved mother of Jamie and Lauren and grandmother to Daniel and Paige Johnston and Ryan and Kyle Carroll. Almost as important in her life, were her dogs Zoey and Onx and her bird, Andrew, of 24 years.
We will always remember Jeanette for her confidence, directness, and drive. She lived by the adage, “You don’t ask, you don’t get!” We will never forget her professional presence of 30 years in the Jamaica Plain and West Roxbury markets (“The Pumpkin Lady” & “The Condo Queen”). We will surely miss her amazing personalized Send-Out-Cards that she sent to all she loved. In June, Jeanette began her battle with lung cancer. We want you to know she was strong and positive throughout her final days. She was surrounded by her friends and family each and every day, which is all she truly desired.
Please join us in celebrating Jeanette’s life at the Robert J. Lawler and Crosby Funeral Home 1803 Centre St., West Roxbury, on Jan. 22, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. (service at 5:30 p.m.). Bring your “Jeanette stories”! In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to MSPCA.
