It is with great sadness that the Murphy family announce the passing of Bridget Teresa Murphy, 79, and Peter Paul Murphy, 79. The couple passed away within 24 hours of each other on Sunday, May 10th, 2020, and Monday, May 11th, 2020. Bridget passed away in her home and Peter passed away at the Doylestown Hospital.
They were married for 57 years. Both originally from Ireland, Bridget and Peter started their married life in Philadelphia and eventually landed in Buckingham, where they had lived since 1973.
Peter was born in Cashel, County Tipperary, Ireland. He moved to England at the age of 16, and then immigrated to America in 1958 at the age of 18. Peter held various jobs after settling in the Northeast, and ultimately joined the Plumbers Local 690 in Philadelphia, where he worked until retiring in 2002.
Bridget (who went by Teresa) was born in Midfield, County Mayo, Ireland. She immigrated to America in 1958, and originally worked for Nice Ball Bearing before becoming a homemaker. After their youngest child went off to college, Bridget reentered the work force as an administrative assistant at Whitehall Insurance, until retiring in 2002.
Bridget and Peter enjoyed spending time with their family and friends, as well as volunteering at their parish, Our Lady of Guadalupe.
Peter is survived by one sister, Norah Mulhern, and two brothers, Patrick Murphy and Joseph Murphy. Bridget is survived by two sisters, Anne Taylor and Patricia Cashin, and two brothers, Michael Gavin and John Gavin. They are survived by two sons, Peter (Michelle) Murphy and Kevin (Leah) Murphy, and one daughter, Teresa (Timothy) Earles, as well as eight grandchildren and one great grandchild.
Services will be held Wednesday, May 20, 2020 at a private mass at Our Lady of Guadalupe, Doylestown, PA. A live stream of the mass will be made available. A community celebration of Bridget and Peter’s life will be held on a to be determined date in the future.
