Gwendolyn (Gwen) Frances (Mode) Murphy

1942 ~ 2023 (age 80) 80 Years Old


On January 18, 2023, Gwen Murphy (Mode) got her wings and went to walk with the angels. She was 80 years old. A lifelong philanthropist, Gwen donated to many charities and was always there to offer a helping hand. She was a proud mother and wonderful teacher and friend. Gwen liked to laugh, loved animals and was an avid reader; she was rarely without a book in-hand.

Gwen was predeceased by her husband of 50 years, Frank Murphy. She is survived by her son, Patrick, and family, Pamela, Rylee and Nolan. There will be a Celebration of Life Ceremony at 2pm on January 29, 2023 followed by refreshments, at Basic Funerals in Barrie. All are invited.


Your Hug Meant the World
Nobody else held me so tight
Or made me feel so right
No one's eyes shined so bright with love
As my mom, who is now high above.

- Tamsen Butler
