Marie Anne Murphy

July 27, 1933 - March 5, 2013


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Marie on Tuesday March 5, 2013 in Nelson, B.C.

Born on July 27, 1933 in Nelson, B.C. to Rosina and Louie Coletti,

Marie spent her youth in Nelson and graduated in 1955 from Sacred Heart School of Nursing in Spokane, Washington.

Marie’s happiest times were spent gardening, travelling and celebrating with family and friends. Her devotion to God sustained

her throughout her long battle with cancer.

Marie was predeceased by her sisters, Louise Thast and Loretta Coletti and is survived by her brother, George Coletti and sister Reta McGovern.

Predeceased by her son Tom Jr., Marie will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 57 years Thomas Murphy, her children Shannon(Richard), Jo-Anne (Tom), Pam, Erin (Jim), her grandchildren Charles,

Michelle, Chloe, and Everett.

The family wishes to sincerely thank Dr. Cochrane, Dr. Malpass, Dr. D. Cook and all of the wonderful nurses and care workers in Nelson and Trail.

Dear Tom, the Murphy family, siblings and extended relatives of Marie, we offer our shared suffering in your loss of a wonderful person in Christ who has now returned from whence she came and now eternally healed.

“Brothers and sisters we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.” (1 Thessalonians 4:13)
