She is survived by her son, Michael Craskey of Wilmington, DE; brothers, James Murphy of Broomall, PA and Philip Murphy of Coatesville, PA; sister, Patricia Quinn of Glenolden, PA; and longtime companion, Richard Miller.

    Thank you for the many gifts you gave me. You will always be with me. The mom I made hot chocolate with as a child, went ice skating with as a young boy, and shared adult conversations with as a grown man. I miss you. I love you.
