Regina E. (Murphy) Oplinger, 61, of Allentown, died January 6 at Lehigh Valley Hospital Cedar Crest. Born May 9, 1960, in New York, Regina grew up in King of Prussia and was a resident of Allentown for the last 36 years. She was the daughter of the late William G. Murphy and Eileen T. (Hartnett) Murphy. She was the loving wife of John Oplinger for 36 years. Regina graduated from Archbishop John Carroll High School in 1978 and Kutztown University in 1982. She worked at St. Luke’s Health Network, having previously worked at First National Bank and Guardian Life Insurance. Affectionately known as Migs, she loved spending time with her family and taking long walks around the neighborhood. Every night, she finished the entire puzzle page of the newspaper, particularly liking the crossword and jumble. She watched Jeopardy! nightly and always checked QVC for the day’s special value. She enjoyed reading romantic suspense novels and the obituaries in the daily newspaper. She tolerated her husband hosting large parties in their backyard waterpark, the OWP. She was an avid fan of the Eagles and Villanova basketball, although she wished coach Jay Wright would resume wearing his nice tailored suits on the sideline. In her memory, please enjoy some plain M&M’s and a glass (or two) of white zinfandel. She will be dearly missed by her husband John, son Michael (Somer Wiggins), daughter Amy (Anthony Almes); 3 brothers: William Murphy Jr. (Cecelia “Peggy”), Thomas Murphy (Betty), Mark Murphy (Amy Greer) and sister Theresa M. Betts (John). Services: 1:00 PM, Thursday, January 13 at Trexler Funeral Home, 1625 W. Highland St., Allentown. Calling will begin at 11:30 AM. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the charity of your choice.
