Carol Adam Murphy

Carol Adam Murphy, 69, died December 28, 2017 at Hope Hospice in Bonita Springs, FL in the presence of her beloved children and loving husband.


Born on February 17, 1948 in Batavia IA to Walter and Mary Catherine Adam she was the third of 12. Her mother would refer to Carol as her "little baker". From a young age she always wanted to help others. After her childhood on the Adam family farm she grew into a woman who found success in every sense of the word, most notably as a Mother and Grandmother.


Carol would talk to anyone, as if they had been friends forever. Her loving words have healed many wounds. Her stories have brought tears and laughter. Her encouragement has changed many a life. However, Carol will be remembered by her actions. With loving deeds too many to count, the extent of her impact is truly immeasurable.


Out of the many scriptures in her Bible that she underlined, there is one verse that she exemplified. "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven" Matthew 5:16.


Carol blessed us with her light, filling any room, no matter the size. Even in the years leading up to her death, with pain from the cancer consuming her, she did not waiver in her faith. In the darkest moments, she shined as bright as ever.
