Ella Barbara Smith Murphy
Birth: Oct. 22, 1896
Kings County (Brooklyn)
New York, USA
Death: May 14, 1974
Massapequa Park
Nassau County
New York, USA

There seems to be some controversy as to what her first and middle name were. Someone changed this memorial to read "Helen Sarah" and there are family trees out there with "Helen Sarah", however every document I have has "Ella Barbara" and the headstone has "Ella" so the memorial will remain that way.

Ella was married to Edward J. Murphy. She had two daughters: Claire Jacqueline Schwartau Solheim (née Murphy) and Ella Murrow (née Murphy).

She was survived by 6 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.

Added to her family after her passing are 5 great-grandchildren and 27 great-great-grandchildren who have all heard and love the stories of the lady we loved and knew as "Nana".

She was a wonderful, lovely lady who I remember dearly as my Nana...and she is forever in our hearts.

Nana, You have always been so special to me. As a kid, I loved to tease you about playing tennis - I look forward to the time I will see you and can tease you again. I sure do love you, Nana - always have, always will. Richard (a.k.a. Ricky)
