My heartfelt condolences to the family of Catherine Murphy. We all lived in the same sub in WB and attended WBHS, and were involved in youth activities in the church.

I worked with Catherine at Blue Care Network on many key corporate initiatives and process improvement projects. She was a very kind and supportive leader and well respected.

Catherine and I shared a love for our dogs and shared tears and memories when we had to say goodbye to our four legged friends.

My deepest condolences to the family, may you find peace in the coming days as you reflect on special family memories.

Catherine and I work closely together at Blue Care Network for many years. She was always collaborative, dedicated and a pleasure to work with. Catherine was well respected and will be missed by many. I’m out of state and regretfully can not say farewell in person but will keep her and her family in my prayers.

Catherine was a powerful force for change at Blue Care Network. I had the privilege of working with her in a major system implementation and after for 10+ years. I pray her family finds comfort in these next few months. I can’t attend the visitation as I am out of town but will keep the family and her friends in my prayers.
