Loving Mother, Grandmother, Daughter, and Sister

Nancy Murphy, 57, of Westfield/Avenel, passed away of natural causes on August 20, 2020.

Born to Eileen and Elliott Scott, November 11, 1962, in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Nancy graduated from Westfield High School, later achieved an Associates Degree, and was employed in various secretarial positions over the years.

Nancy often stated she was extremely proud of her two children, Kevin and Jennifer. She enjoyed cooking weekly dinners at her apartment and keeping involved in her children's lives. She enjoyed playing games with her grandson, Jaden, and loved to make him laugh. She also spent much of her time with her mother and sister, Eileen and Jeanne, and loved them dearly.

Nancy experienced difficult times throughout life, however she did not let this impact her ability to express kindness. She was able to make friends wherever she went and will be forever missed for her corny jokes, playful personality, and kind-heartedness.

Nancy is survived by her mother Eileen, her sister Jeanne, her two children; Kevin and Jennifer, and her grandson Jaden. She will be extremely missed by all and may she forever be at peace.

Nancy, how do I begin. we met when we were 10 years old, and instantly became best friends. after 47 years we went through everything: puberty, adolescents, being wives, being mothers, being grandmothers. When things were tough we were on the phone; when things were amazing we were on the phone and in between all that we were on the phone. Nanc my head and my heart will be waiting for your call, and I will be calling you. I am gonna miss you and I will ALWAYS love you!!! Until we meet again my friend. Patti
