Obituary of Grace Murphy
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear mother and Granny on Monday, October 3, 2022 surrounded by her family. Beloved wife of the late Bill (2017). Fun loving Mom to Grace, Agnes and Bill. Cherished Granny to Sheila and Jeff. Honorary Mother to Sharon Silenzi and Lorraine Barton. She will be missed by her nieces, nephews and extended family members across the globe.
Born in Glasgow, Scotland on November 1, 1930, she immigrated to Canada in 1958. Grace worked in many locations including, Imperial Optical, General Signals and Welland Hospital. A selfless and giving person, her home was always open for family, friends and cherished neighbours. Throughout the last year she was strong through her battle with Cancer and never let it bring her down. She will always be remembered dancing in her kitchen to ABBA.
A special thank you to the Nurses at ParaMed, especially Kim and Jocelyn for their exceptional care and compassion. In accordance with Grace’s wishes, cremation has taken place. Arrangements are entrusted to Essentials Cremation and Burial Services (905) 734-1031. As she had a love for animals, memorial donations may be made to Niagara SPCA – Welland Location.
There are no upcoming public services scheduled or the service has occurred in the past.
