Life Story for Luella "Lou" Murphy

Luella "Lou" Murphy
Luella Janet (LeClaire) was born in Ormstown, Quebec on January 23, 1936. She is survived by her children Diane (Ken) Leavine, Deborah (Geoff) Lindemer, Lynn (Michael) Darrah, Jane (Lee) Davis, and Danny (Kathie) Roby. She is also survived by her grandchildren Kenneth (Laura) Leavine, Danielle (Chris) Jackson, Kendi (Bryan) Rankin, Kevin Demars, Heather Darrah, Kristin Roby, Shana Darrah, Matt (Kirby) Lindemer, Brandon (Heather) Darrah, and Ben Lindemer along with her great-grandchildren Kayleigh, Tristan and Dylan Jackson, Owen and Addison Rankin, Ashleigh and Tyler Leavine, Caleb DeCarlo and Jahly Stranahan, Raina and Jerry Darrah, Riley and Joseph Roby, Ryan and Jacob Ferreiras, and Silas Demars. She is also survived by her brother Murray (Grace) LeClaire and her cherished nieces Lauranna (Chuck) Dowdall and Beth (Chris) Stewart and great nephew Wesley Stewart.
Lou was predeceased by her parents Dufferin E. and Janet M. (Rutherford) LeClaire, her husband James A. Murphy, companion James McCaffrey, brother Clifford LeClaire and her granddaughter Katrine Ferreiras.

Lou was employed at Plattsburgh Lanes for many years. She always enjoyed bantering with her customers and formed many lasting friendships. Lou cherished and enjoyed her family, holidays, camping trips, the pool, ballgames, visits to St. Hubert, the Malone Fair and visits to her Ormstown family and friends. In most recent years the Campus Corner became her favorite place to share stories and meals. Lou had an unlimited supply of smarties and “Rangy Canes” (inside joke) for her grandchildren and loved her Thursday dinners and shopping trips. Raise your cup of tea (make sure it’s hot) and salute Lou, as she is on the road again. She will be missed by her family and friends.

Calling hours will be held on Thursday June 21, 2018 from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm at the Brown Funeral Home, 29 Broad St., Plattsburgh with services to be held at 7:00 p.m. at the Brown Funeral Home.
