In Loving Memory Of

Joan McMurphy


Our precious Joan McMurphy passed away peacefully at the Points West Hospice, on Thursday, January 14, 2016. 

She already has a dog show to prepare for. She crossed the rainbow bridge and picked up all that was ready for her first show on her new journey.

The very first show she ever did as a Show Secretary was in Whitehorse in June of 1977. So for the last 40 years up to the day she passed, that was her life.

Her dog show world was everything as well as the owners of those magnificent dogs. She had many, many friends in that world and was happiest there.

Her 5 children: Dave (Cheryl), Jim (Sue), Judy, Steve (Marlene) and Melody: as well as 10 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren will miss her immensely. As well as those crazy doggy people and all other family and friends, four legged babies as well.

At Mom’s request there will be no funeral or service. Please remember Mom fondly in your hearts and at every show you go to. Go ahead and paint your hair purple in her name. She’d love it.

In lieu of flowers, please feel free to donate to the Grande Prairie Hospice Palliative Care Society (Box 21215, Grande Prairie, AB, T8V 6W7) where Joanie got the utmost of care.  We are so blessed to have had her there.

In Loving Memory of

Joan McMurphy
(Maiden: Snapes)
