Erin L. Murphy, 30, of Worcester, Massachusetts, passed away in the presence of her loving family and friends on Tuesday, December 3, 2019 after her three year journey with cancer at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.

She leaves behind her parents, John “Jack” Murphy and Debra (Jamieson) Murphy, her sister Lauren Murphy, grandmothers Virginia Jamieson and Dolores Murphy, and many aunts, uncles and cousins. She was predeceased by her grandfathers John E. Murphy, Sr. and George A. Jamieson.

Erin was a graduate of Acton-Boxborough Regional High School (2008), received her bachelors degree in Psychology from Clark University (2012), followed by her masters degree in Education from Clark University (2013). Born a natural athlete and leader, she played and captained field hockey and softball at both the high school and collegiate levels. She was the well-deserving recipient of the Pat Hassett Award, an award given to the student athlete who has contributed significantly to the Clark and Worcester communities.

Dog mom to her two Bernese Mountain dogs, she enjoyed spending any free time with them as well as with her family and many special friends. Her contagious smile and positive attitude was an inspiration to all, but arguably most effectively to her students at Woodland Academy, where she has taught for the past six years. Beyond the classroom, Erin continued to apply her leadership skills by combining her passion for sports and teaching by coaching the Strikers AAU field hockey club.

Visiting hours will be held on Friday, December 13, 2019 from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Acton Funeral Home, 470 Massachusetts Ave. Rt. 111, Acton, MA 01720. A celebration of Erin's life is planned for Saturday, December 14, 2019 from 11:00 to 1:00 p.m. at Wedgewood Pines Country Club, 215 Harvard Road, Stow, MA 01775. The family will hold a private burial service in South Cemetery Boxborough at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Erin’s honor to Pancreatic Cancer: MGH GI Cancer Center Fund Number #120002027 to the attention of Dr. Jeffrey W. Clark, M.D., MGH Cancer Center, 55 Fruit St., Boston, MA 02114.

Thanks, Erin, for being an amazing Captain, a gifted field hockey player and a wonderful human being. You were always there for your family, your friends, your AB teams, your students, and during my cancer battle, you were there for me. I am a better person and coach for having had you in my life. You are missed and loved, Coach Shoe
