miss alice murphy, 
orillia, passed

Miss Alice Murphy died quite suddenly and unexpectedly about noon on Sunday, of heart failure. She had been ill only three or four days.

Her mother died only a couple of months ago, after a long illness, and it would appear that the strain of nursing had weakened her daughter.

Miss Murphy was the only daughter of the late Thos. Murphy, L.D.S., of Simcoe.

She is survived by two brothers, Messrs. Bruce and Robert Murphy of Orillia.

Miss Murphy was a graduate of the Toronto Conservatory of Music and had been a successful teacher of piano in Orillia for many years.

The funeral, which was private, was held on Tuesday afternoon to St. James Cemetery. -- Orillia Packett.

The family of the late Mr. J. T. Murphy, 
Mrs. Samuel Chadwick and her two sons and the Misses Polley are among the Simcoe relatives of the deceased, who will be well remembered by many other residents who were schoolmates of hers in the seventies of the last century.
