Marnie Murphy

September 17, 1968 ~ July 28, 2022 (age 53)


CANFIELD — Dr. Marnie Murphy, 53, passed away unexpectedly after a brief illness, on Thursday, July 28, 2022.

Born Sept. 17, 1968, in Youngstown, she was the daughter of Robert D. and Patricia Flynn Murphy.

Marnie graduated from Canfield High School in 1986 and went on to attend Youngstown State University, where she was a member of Delta Zeta sorority. She received her doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1992.

She initially practiced in Flushing, Ohio, before returning to her hometown in 2000 to open Murphy Chiropractic Center in Canfield. Marnie loved her chiropractic practice and caring for her patients, and gave all she had to improve their health and well-being.

She was an active member and past president of Junior Women’s League of Canfield, where she received the Member of the Year Award in 2022.

Her kindness and compassion was felt by all who knew her; her passing leaves a void in the hearts of so many.

She is survived by her mother, Patricia; a sister, Anne (Tim) Murphy Hagan of Hollywood, Fla.; and a brother, Robert (Stephanie Harris) Murphy of Williamsburg, Va.; as well as many other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her father, Robert.
