Margaret Louise Pumphrey, 76, of Chesapeake Beach, MD formerly of Camp Springs, MD passed away peacefully with her loving family by her side at Burnett Calvert Hospice House on September 20, 2016. She was born on August 10, 1940 in Washington, DC to the late Francis and Louise Hamilton Murth.
"Ma" as she was known to her loved ones, was a wonderful and caring person who would do anything to help her family and friends. She was a member of the Camp Springs Elks for over 30 years. She loved to go to craft shows and to shop. She loved to watch her Redskins. She also loved to travel to Las Vegas and to Florida and going on a cruise with her family. We will all miss the family gatherings at her house for Christmas, our summer crab feasts, the many good times with her friends at Traders and sharing a few beers every now and then.
There are far more memories than we could ever list. She leaves a lasting impact on all who had the privilege of knowing her. Her strength, determination, love and kindness were evident to all and were a true example of how to live and to treat those around you. Ma loved her family and friends. She will be missed but not forgotten.
Margaret is survived by her husband of 58 years, Ralph Eugene Pumphrey, Jr.; daughter, Sherry Hurd (Billy) of Chesapeake Beach; son, Francis "Gene" Pumphrey (Lisa) of Chesapeake Beach; brother, Francis Murth of The Villages, FL; four grandchildren, Candice Wheelock (Nate), Kevin, Michael (Brandi) and Kaitlyn Pumphrey and three great-grandchildren, Mackenzie and Jaidyn Wheelock and Travis Pumphrey.
