On March 8, 1985, Tena was born to Benny Murfin and Cleo Chambers in Roswell, New Mexico. She graduated from high school, attended college for two years, and received a Massage Therapist License from the New Mexico Massage Board. Tena was self-employed, she had her own business, “Tena’s Touch Massage.” She loved volunteering at BeeHive Homes, Artesia Family Wellness Center, and Craft Fair for the elderly. Tena’s gift of compassion is more than a learned behavior. It was a characteristic of her nature; her heart was for service, and her life was dedicated to being a giving person. She enjoyed shopping, massage therapy, and make-up. Tena’s most treasured memories were the times she spent with her friends and loved ones. Her favorite sports were volleyball and cheer. She will be deeply missed, but her joyful spirit will forever dance in the hearts of everyone who loved Tena.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Tena’s honor to Anderson Bethany Funeral Home.
I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.
I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways,
of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days.
I’d like the tears of those who grieve,
to dry before the sun of happy memories
that I leave when life is done.
