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.

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.

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.
