Her death was a peaceful one. With her family by her side, she passed away in her home in New Jersey. A formal statement was issued by the publicist for Charlie Murphy, Lyndsey Jacobs.

The family of the Murphys have requested the fans, friend and acquaintances to grant them some amount of privacy in this very difficult time of mourning. They have thanked everyone who has been with them for all the support throughout Tisha Taylor Murphy’s illness. Tisha Taylor Murphy is survived by her husband, Charlie Murphy, and her three children, one of whom is from Charlie Murphy’s previous marriage. No comments have been forthcoming from the bereaved family itself. Although fans and friends have been sending their condolences via email, there has been no attempt to contact the family for comments.
