End of an era

A sad chapter in our family history occurred last week with the passing of Nita Dawne Murphy (nee Tibby). Dawne was married to Fred Murphy and loved mother of Mike, Steve, Coralie, Kerry and Megan - and grandmother and great grandmother to many more loved ones. Although Dawne suffered from dementia for the past several years she will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her many descendants.
