The Murphy Funeral Home in Falls Church, Virginia, opened in 1965 after founders, Robert J. and Betty Murphy decided to open another location in Northern Virginia to better serve the community. The original Murphy Funeral Home opened in 1956 and was located in Arlington on Columbia Pike and relocated to a larger home on Wilson Boulevard in 1975.
60 years of service
With more than 60 years of service, the Murphy Funeral Homes have continued to evolve and grow with the diverse and changing Northern Virginia community. We are guided by a quote from our founder, Mr. Murphy: "You don't make yourself known. You make yourself worthy of being known."
"I could not have asked for such a wonderful staff form murphy funeral home! I was so very blessed that everyone was so compassionate! Everything was explained to me during this process."
"We are awaiting funeral at arlington national cemetery so we are not finished."
"My regret is that I did not have the presence of mind to instruct murphys to not put obit online. I can not undo it from legacy. Com because of this."
