Jennifer Egler-Murphy, 49, of Lemitar, NM, passed away on January 17, 2022 peacefully at home.
Jennifer was born on April 4, 1972 to Emory and Jo Egler in Brookhaven, NY. She was raised in Socorro, NM and has spent her life living in Santa Fe, Socorro, Magdalena and Lemitar, NM.
Jennifer’s compassion for people prompted her to attain her Licensed Practical Nurse degree and she cared for patients in Santa Fe. She was a home health aide throughout the years as well and brought comfort and care to many. Jennifer had an incredible way with animals and gave her heart and soul into caring for horses, dogs, cats, rabbits, chickens, goats, sheep, pigs…you name it, any animal was well cared for and loved. Her life was enriched with this mission.
Jennifer was predeceased by her father, Emory Egler, her mother Jo Egler and the father of her youngest child, Pat Esquibel. She is survived by her daughters, Heidi Nelson and Eryn Esquibel, her husband John Murphy, her sisters, Tracy Egler and Gina Egler, and her nephew, Liam Roback and niece, Emma Roback . She left this life too soon and we will miss her one of a kind spirit and giving heart.
The family will be providing an online life celebration for family and friends soon. The family requests that any gifts be made as donations to Animal Protective Association of Socorro (APAS) directly.
