Profile of Life       


She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed.

Proverbs 31: 25-28a


Margaret Lucille Noble Murphy-Hamilton was born in Savannah, Georgia on September 21, 1933 to the late Mr. William Henry (Kelly) Noble and Mrs. Alice Noble.

She was educated in the Chatham County public school system.  Margaret was employed by the Desoto Hilton Hotel for more than 20 years and later retired. After retiring she was a Senior Companion for many years. In her early years, Margaret was a member of St. Mary’s AME Church of East Savannah.  She then joined Bible and Prayer Ministries, where she remained a member until her passing.

Margaret was truly an extremely loving, caring, direct, blunt and strong individual who did not mind saying exactly what was on her mind, or should we simply say that she was “brutally honest”.  Margaret was so full of love that she was able to spread much love around to many individuals throughout her life time.  She was looked at as a mother figure to many.  Margaret was also a God-fearing individual who truly loved the Lord and had faith that was un-wavered.


She was preceded in death by her father, Mr. William Henry (Kelly) Noble, her mother, Ms. Alice Noble, her sister, Ann Marie Noble, her brother, Everett Ray Noble Sr. and a sister-in-law, (Lillian Noble), her daughter, Cynthia Edwards, two sons, Walter Murphy and Robert E. Murphy Jr., a stepdaughter, Gloria Jean Hamilton, 2 stepsons, Tony Hamilton and John J. Hamilton Jr., two grandsons, Melvin Edwards Jr., Jason M. Murphy and a bonus son Michael Rampey.


Margaret entered into eternal rest on Wednesday, November 9, 2022.  She will always be loved and cherished by the many lives that she touched. She leaves behind her devoted son, Henry C. Murphy Sr., a son-in-law, Melvin Edwards Sr., a daughter-in-law, Sandra L. Murphy, three stepsons, Ronald Hamilton (Lula), Marvin Hamilton and Gregory Hamilton. Two stepdaughters, Johnnie Mae Grant (O’Neal), Barbara Hamilton Jacobs, a godson, Marvin Walker. Margaret also leaves behind a host of grandchildren: (33) grands, (57) great-grands, and (21) great-great grandchildren. Also, a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
