A memorial Mass of Christian Burial for Patricia (Ford) Running Murphy, 96, of St. Louis Park, previously of Marshall, will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 12, 2020, at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church. Visitation will be one hour prior to the service at the church. Interment will follow the service at Calvary Catholic Cemetery.

Patricia passed away peacefully on July 16, 2020. Pat “Gammy” was born on May 12, 1924, to Dr. BC “Bobo” and Laura (Grink) Ford in Marshall. Pat graduated from Marshall High School, and she studied Occupational Therapy at St. Mary’s College in Milwaukee, WI. Her favorite place was at her cabin on Ten Mile Lake in north central Minnesota. Pat and her first husband Red raised four children, Darcy, Kerry, Linda, and Brad.

Pat was preceded in death by her parents, sisters Eileen and Marty, brother Jack, and her loving husbands NA “Red” Running and Dr. Joseph Murphy. Pat was also preceded in death by many of her friends from Marshall, Naples, FL, and Ten Mile Lake. Pat spent the last years of her life at the Sholom Home in St. Louis Park, MN, where she received wonderful care from all of the caregivers and staff who lovingly called her Patty. She will be missed by everyone who had the opportunity to be with her. As Gammy would say whenever anyone left after a visit: “Toodaloo!”
