On Tuesday, October 29th, 2013 we said goodbye to Sharon who died peacefully after a lifelong battle during which she inspired us with her eternal optimism, strength and courage. She was a loving and caring daughter of Leo Murphy and Margaretta (nee Sheflin) Murphy. She will be missed by her three brothers: Terry, Kevin and Dennis and their families. Sharon had a wonderfully varied career as a teacher, co-ordinator and principal. She volunteered tirelessly for many organizations including the Canadian Cancer Society, The Arthritis Society and the Robarts Centre. She loved the arts, especially classical music and literature, and travel for big and small adventures. We all remember Sharon for her cheerful phone calls and thoughtful letters. She touched the hearts, minds and souls of her students, colleagues, relatives and friends. Special thanks to the marvelous staff and nurses on the 8th floor and the I.C.U. at University Hospital in London.
