ST. ALBANS — Mrs. Anita E. (Trombly) Murphy, age 85, passed away Wednesday evening, June 15, 2016, at the Northwestern Medical Center. She was born Oct. 7, 1930, in St. Albans, daughter of the late Joseph and Victoria (Poupore) Trombly. She married Robert Carlton Murphy April 28, 1951, in St. Albans. Bob predeceased her Dec. 12, 1995. Anita was the bookkeeper for the family business, Murphy’s Auto Repair.

She was a communicant of Holy Angels Church, a member of the American Legion Auxiliary Unit #1, and the Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary Unit #758.
