Regina Murphy, 67, died peacefully at her home on September 4. Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1954, Regina moved to Las Vegas in 1973. She appears to have been at least partially responsible for Las Vegas' population boom, having led a long line of Murphy's, Picini's, Burkhardt's and loads of other families to move here, resulting in the birth of at least half of all Vegas Born VGK fans.

As the "R" in J & R Flooring, Regina founded what was to become one of the largest flooring companies in Nevada, resulting in the long term employment of many families, and a company whose defining success is that it was built so much more around people and service than product. While she left the company to be run by her daughter in 1995, her founding principles guide it still today.

Regina's true calling in life was as a healer and a giver, always paying her blessings forward and never letting life's difficulties, as heavy as they may have been at times, get in the way of gratitude for life's boundless gifts and wonders. Every person she touched with her healing light touched another, and another, and another still; her love and light spreading infinitely throughout the universe. Her gifts were boundless and she shared them with unmatched urgency and passion.

Regina was blessed with a large family rich in love and connection. She is preceded in death by her son, John Picini Jr. and her husband, David Coffey. She is survived by her loving daughters Jamie and Michelle; her grandchildren; the Fabulous Murphy sisters, and countless others who have felt her familial connection and warmth permeate their lives.

A true creative, Regina divined soothing sound frequencies and hereby grants her gift to the world at In lieu of flowers, please practice one random act of kindness each day in Regina's name, and always pay your blessings forward.

You will be so missed by me and my family.

I loved sharing a birthday close to yours and will always toast our birthdays as we always did- even this year!! Love you so much and will see you on the other side someday.

Regina was a true human Angel. Her wings of love and giving touched me in 2008 and we became close friends. I became enchanted by her charm, love, and inner spiritual maturity. She gave me much in knowledge and physical healing tools, she invited me to Las Vegas when I visited the USA for a Conference and we presented Energy Healing together at the Enchanted Forest Reiki. I will remember Regina for her kindness to all she met. Her love for Nigerians through our encounter was palpable. Fare well Regina Rose Murphy. Your guides will be by your side. You will find the right path to your eternal Home in Paradise.

I met Regina many years ago! She was teaching a healing class with tuning forks! I still have it to this day... she has always been a very special person to me over the years. I miss you very much but I know you are whole and happy.

Jamie and Michele, I'm sorry. I remember you frequently...especially at St.Francis de Sales. I thought she healed herself. She said she left hospice and was healed. I believed her. True to self, she kept grief and loss at bay for us until she left. She was good and kind to me. I will always remember her, and you. geri.

She was always ready to give, and did so without worry. She was dedicated ito way more than just living day to day. Complex, for sure, but always compassionate, friendly, and ever ready to lighten someone's load. She was a gift those who knew her will ever be grateful for.

Thanks for co-creating with me for a while, Regina!

Jamie and Michelle, even though I didn't know your Mom she must have been a Wonderfull Mother, because it shows in her Beautiful and Kind Daughters. Just know God will Comfort your Hearts and Soothe your Souls during this time... And when your tears fall Blessed Mother Mary will be there to catch them...
