Margaret Murphy, beloved Mother, Daughter, Sister and friend, passed away on Saturday, July 4, 2020, joining her lifelong love and best friend, Michael Puglise in eternal rest.

Born in New Haven on September 7, 1964, she was one of six children to Barbara Ann (Howard) Murphy of Hamden and Thomas W.

Remembered for her nurturing nature and kind spirit, she will be missed dearly.
