Elizabeth L. (Babcock) Murphy passed away Saturday, July 23rd at the Woburn Nursing Center. The beloved daughter of the late Martha Babcock, she was seventy two years old.

Born in Ipswich Betty was raised and educated there, graduating from Ipswich High School with the Class of 1961. Following high school she secured herself a position working in industry, until she later began her family.

Betty brought five children into the world to whom she was devoted to . In the early seventies she moved to Woburn where she has made her home for just about forty five years.

Pretty much a home body, Betty enjoyed time spent with her children. As her children got older and grandchildren began arriving this was all a very special time and she just loved being called “Nannie.”. Board games, cards and puzzles were things Betty enjoyed herself and also with the children and grandchildren.

Sadly Betty was predeceased by her two sons Kevin P. and Scott D. Murphy, her mother Martha Babcock.

Betty is lovingly survived by her children Shawn M. Murphy his wife Kelly of NH, Karen A. Murphy, Donald E. Murphy his girlfriend Laura all of Woburn, and the late Kevin P. and Scott D. Murphy.
