TULSA, Okla. – The family of a woman killed in a car crash is devastated by her loss, but also celebrates the fact that she’s saving other lives through organ donation.
Cherie Murphy‘s husband, son and other loved ones were at Saint Francis as LifeShare raised a flag in her honor.
Friends and family of Cherie Murphy believe there’s nothing greater than the gift of life and said she had a servant’s heart until the very end.
“When you have a person that walks in and you go, ‘oh hey, the days better, you know it is the days better,’ and that’s the type of person she was. The day is better. She’s there. The day’s better,” said Chuck McKinney, Cherie’s boss.
Cherie was 54 years old when she died from her injuries in a car crash.
“She was my work wife and we spent more waking hours with her in the last 24 and a half years than I probably did my wife,” said McKinney. “She was a fighter, I mean she, you know, she never gave up. She could take on any task. Just happy. Just wanted to be part of the team.”
