Patricia Ann Murphy Hudson peacefully departed from this life on October 9th, 2016 surrounded by her loving family. As she crossed into the next life she was immediately welcomed by her son Kevin Metheny, her parents Frank W. "Pat" Murphy and Leah Alice Harjo, and her brother Frank W. "Mike" Murphy and step-sister Joyce Jackson, who had all been somewhat impatiently awaiting her arrival, as they were extremely curious to know her unique commentary about this year's Presidential election. Pat was 80 years young and accomplished more than many do in a lifetime, earning her Master's Degree to serve as a therapist and clinical social worker, a career choice allowing her a lifetime of doing what she did best - helping people who needed it, no matter who they were. Patricia's witty intelligence and outspoken nature effortlessly drew others towards her, and those who had the pleasure of speaking to her even for just a brief time could sense what a passionate, giving, and warm person she was. She was an unapologetic feminist, using her oratory gifts and ability to connect with others to remain active in women's rights throughout her life. Patricia was a world-renowned cook and baker in the eyes of her family members - those she was blood-related to as well as anyone she knew who simply needed a meal, as they were all family to her. She leaves behind three loving daughters and their husbands - Tara and Randy Feuerborn of OKC, OK; Seana and Kyle Dean of OKC, OK; and Amy and Peter Regan of Tulsa, OK - who daily emulate the selflessness and kindness of their mother in many different ways. She leaves the unforgettable legacy of being a strong, resilient, and hard-working matriarch for her surviving 5 granddaughters, 2 grandsons, 1 great-granddaughter and 1 great-grandson. Memorial services and a celebration of life will be held at 2 pm at Saint Augustine of Canterbury Episcopal Church, 14700 N. May Avenue, Oklahoma City, OK on December 2nd, 2016. In lieu of flowers, donations to Planned Parenthood, Infant Crisis Services, or the Guild of Saint George are graciously appreciated.
