April 17, 2005

Agnes L. Murphy, a retired telephone company worker, died Monday at St. Agnes HealthCare after being injured in a fall at her home. She was 81 and had lived for more than four decades in Linthicum.

Born in Baltimore and raised on Hollins Street, she attended the old St. Martin's Academy.

In 1941, she began working for the old Chesapeake & Potomac Telephone Co. as a switchboard operator at its Gilmor Street exchange. She was later a payroll and desk clerk and retired in 1985 from the Inner Harbor office.

Miss Murphy traveled throughout Canada, Mexico and Europe. She was a member of the Telephone Pioneers.

A Mass of Christian burial was offered Friday at St. Joseph's Monastery Church in Irvington.

Survivors include a brother, William B. Murphy of Linthicum; and two sisters, Mary Dubois of Milton, Maine, and Carolyn Schoeneman of Linthicum.
