  1. What a stoic woman Auntie Mil was. She had the tough Murphy blood, and was classy to the very end. I’m so glad her passing was peaceful and that she’s with Ted and her girls now <3 Please know I'll be thinking about you all at the service and I'm sending out a great big hug to you!

    So Sorry for your loss. We didn’t know Mildred at all but my mom, Lena Taylor, was the pianist in Ted’s orchestra for a time when living in Ontario. I remember my mom coming down the stairs wearing the most beautiful dresses, going out to play for some event. The morning after, she told us many stories about how the dance went.
    Those were the days. Again, so sorry.
