My Dad, Maurice Murphy, was born in Oderin, NL in 1919. He grew up in Fox Harbour, Placentia Bay, where Mom also lived. Dad joined the Navy in 1939 and stayed till 1945.He was in confrontation in many places worked on many ships. When he came home, he again went to sea and worked on ferries, with Fisheries Patrol, and for many years worked with CN until he passed away on the William Carson with a heart attack.
I, Marie (Murphy) Dymond, graduated from the General Hospital School of Nursing. After working there for two years (which was required at that time), I joined the military and worked at NDMC in Ottawa, ON, then was posted to CFS Gypsumville, MB and worked a short time in CFB Lahr, Germany. I returned home to St. John's and continued to work as a nurse until retirement.
