MURPHY, Dr. Mary A.

October 16, 1918 to January 10, 2016

Mary was born in Calgary and grew up in Vancouver, receiving Bachelors and Masters degrees from the University of British Columbia, then going on to receive her M.D. from University of Western Ontario in 1948. She and her husband Edwin Markowski, settled in Cloverdale B.C. where she practiced family medicine for decades, finally retiring in 1998 at the age of 80. She had three children of her own as well as many other interests. The gardens she planted are some of her legacies. So are the lives she touched through her long and rich life. Predeceased by her husband Edwin and her son David, she is survived by her son Stephen, daughter Christine, and numerous grandchildren. There is no service by her request, but you may make a donation to the charity of your choice.
