Marilyn Murphy Overton, 83, died Wednesday, October 3, 2018 at home surrounded with love by her husband, children and grandchildren.

She was born in Atlanta, GA and as the daughter of an Army officer, traveled the United States and the world throughout her school age years.  She graduated from St. Mary’s Academy high school in Washington, DC and continued her education, receiving a Bachelor’s degree from George Washington University and later a Master’s degree in Speech Therapy.

In 1965, she married Army officer William Edward Murphy III (deceased 1986) and continued her world travels as they began their young family.  They eventually settled in the Philadelphia, PA suburbs where she worked as a Speech Therapist helping children transform their lives.  A few years after the passing of her husband, she married the second great love of her life, Terry Scott Overton in 1993.

Together with Terry, she enjoyed seeing their five children complete college, get married and bless them with seven wonderful grandchildren while extensively traveling the world.  In 2000, Marilyn and Terry retired to Savannah, GA and quickly began making friends and establishing themselves in the community.  Marilyn founded and led several dining, golf and bridge groups at the Landings.  She was active in volunteer work in her community and was always ready to lend a helping hand.

Surviving are her husband, Terry Overton of Savannah, GA; daughter and son-in-law Bridget and Patrick Cronin of Bethesda, MD; son and daughter-in-law Brian and Alina Murphy of Darnestown, MD; son and daughter-in-law, Keith and Cynthia Overton of Wayne, PA; son and daughter-in-law, Ken and Valerie Overton of Chestertown, MD; son and daughter-in-law Kevin and Maggie Murphy of Highlands Ranch, CO.  In addition, she is survived by her grandchildren Ryan Overton, Claire Overton, Tilghman Overton, Carter Murphy, Cullen Murphy, Peri Overton and Elizabeth Cronin as well as her brothers H. Michael Rankin, W.H. “Skip” Rankin and S. Patrick Rankin.

The family will receive friends from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. on Sunday October 7, 2018 at Fox and Weeks Funeral Directors, Hodgson Chapel.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:00 a.m. Monday October 8, 2018 at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Savannah, GA.

Interment will be private.

The family suggests that any remembrances be made in her memory to the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University, Office of Gift Records, Emory University, 1762 Clifton Rd. NE, Suite 1400, Atlanta, GA 30322.
