Judy Murphy Fischer, 48, passed away Jan. 21, 2016, at Dixie Regional Medical Center. She was born Sept. 20, 1967, in St. George, Utah, to William Owen Murphy and Lani Kay Losee Bingham.
Judy grew up in St. George, Utah. She married Chris Fischer; together they had four children. They were later divorced. Judy loved cooking, camping and, most of all, her family. She spent many years as a beautician and the past year working at the Southern Utah Veterans Home.
Judy shared her infectious personality with all she came in contact with. She served in the LDS Primary for many years, but her heart was working with the Young Women. Her favorite was girl’s camp, especially showing off her cooking skills.
She is survived by her children, Jodi Kay Hughes (Drannen Hughes) of St. George, Utah, Kacie Jo Fischer (Mark McKinney) of Roanoke, Virginia, Mandy Fischer (Ian Barlow Jr.) of St. George, Utah, and Kolten Lane Fischer of St. George, Utah; grandchildren, Klansi Hughes, Houston J. Hughes, Gunnison McKinney and Madison McKinney; ex-husband, Chris Fischer of St. George, Utah; and sisters, Kari (Brent) Theobald of St. George, Debbie (Vince) Cramer of Pocatello, Idaho, and Peggy (Todd) Woolley of St. George, Utah.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Bill Murphy and Leon and Lani Kay Bingham, and a nephew, Ryan Woolley.
