    • (Living names removed) MURPHY, Beatrice Mary Norsworthy; December 1, 1919 - December 18, 2012
      It is with great sadness that the family announces the death of their deeply loved Mom and Granny, Beatrice Norsworthy MURPHY on December 18, 2012. Predeceased by her husband and best friend, Dr. David Ross MURPHY in 2007, B and Dave made a terrific team.As the mother of five, she relied on a strong sense of humour. Mum was a wise and strong inspiration to us and a close and reliable friend to so many. She had a particular fondness for the family dogs; first Paddy, then Sam and finally Coach. She graduated in 1941 from McGill University in Honours Biochemistry, one of three women in her class. She contributed time and enthusiasm to the Women's Auxiliary at the Montreal General Hospital, to the Tiny Tim Shop at the Montreal Children's Hospital and Meals on Wheels. Memorial service on May 18 at 11:00 at the Mount Royal Funeral Complex, 1297 Chemin de la Foret, Outremont, Québec Remembrances to the charity of your choice or to the David R. Murphy Fund c/o Montreal Children's Hospital Foundation, 3400 de Maisonneuve Ouest, Suite 1420 Montreal, Quebec H3Z 3B8.
