MURPHY, Barbara Mary Passed away peacefully on June 1, 2013. Will be dearly missed by her children Nickye, Philippa and Dominic and all her grandchildren (predeceased by her husband of 49 years, Patrick, in 2011). Barbara was born March 14, 1930 in Coventry, England. She was an avid long-distance swimmer at a very young age. Barbara was also a strong cyclist participating in velodrome races as a young adult. She married Patrick in 1962 and they spent the first 14 years of their marriage in Rickmansworth, England raising three children. She was known as a fabulous cook after training at the Cordon Bleu School of Cooking and her dinner parties were eagerly anticipated. The family emigrated to Oakville, Canada in 1976. Barbara then started a 25-year career as a real estate broker and this was her passion. She was actively involved in arbitration and was a member of The Arbitration and Mediation Institute of Ontario. A private service has taken place. If desired, donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society..
