Born September 8, 1941 in Peoria, a daughter to Francis & Isabel (Wyman) Munn. On February 16, 1957 she married George H. Murphy in Burlington, Iowa and together they cherished 63 years.

Dee enjoyed many activities such as tap dancing, golfing, and socializing with friends. After retirement she spent the winter months at her home in Donna, Texas enjoying the warm weather.
