Barbara Lynne Mahar Murphy, 66

B arbara Lynne Mahar Murphy, 66, of Myrtle Beach, S.C., passed away unexpectedly on Dec. 29, 2010, due to complications from surgery with her loving children by her side.

Born July 5, 1944, in Albany, she was the daughter of the late John Donnell and Lorraine (Aiken) Mahar. Lynne leaves behind three cherished children, Tommy Scott and his wife, Dawnice, of Myrtle Beach, S.C., Jennifer Wallner of Vienna, Austria, and Katherine Murphy of Whiteville, N.C. Lynne is also survived by her brother, John Donnell Mahar and his wife, Patricia, of Queensbury; as well as a special uncle, James Aiken and his wife, Sandra, of Whitehall; and aunts, Irene Mahar of Venice, Fla., Cathy Aiken of Huletts
Landing and Lilly Aiken of Whitehall. Lynne also leaves behind several cousins, nieces, nephews and other cherished family members and friends.

Lynne was raised in Albany and earned a nursing degree from Dutchess County Community College, Poughkeepsie. She had a great passion for her vocation and her patients. She also had a great love for animals, especially her four pugs, a great love for photography and for spending time in nature.

A memorial service will be held at a later date at the convenience of the family.

If wished, Lynne’s family suggests that memorial contributions be made in her memory to the ASPCA or any nature preservation organization.
