Emelia was born December 31, 1922 at the Red Cross Hospital in Altario, Alberta, daughter to Chester and Anastasia Domanski. Emelia was raised on the Domanski farm along with her four sisters and three brothers.

After completing her schooling, Emelia went on to work at the store in Altario which kept her busy until meeting Joe Murphy. In December of 1945, Emelia and Joe were married and together raised their family of four – three sons and one daughter.

Emelia and Joe spent many years calling Altario home. After their original house, they moved into a house they built together in 1972. In addition to enjoying their time at home, they also enjoyed to travel south and spent a number of winters in Arizona.

On March 5, 1988 Joe passed away and this brought many changes for Emelia. One of the biggest changes would have been getting her driver’s license for the first time at the age of 65 years. Her adaptability and willingness to learn new things allowed Emelia to stay on the farm until 2005.

From the farm, Emelia first moved to the Hillcrest Lodge in Provost, Alberta. Following her time here, she made her final move to the Provost Health Centre Long Term Care.

Surrounded by the love of her family, Emelia passed away on March 4, 2019 at the Provost Health Centre at the age of 96 years.

She will be forever missed and lovingly remembered by her children, Lynn (Herb) Tory, Bob (Rosemary), Frank (Donna), John † (Wendy); grandchildren, Carolyn, Greg (Sheri), Glenna (Mike), Brett (Carla), Jim (Angela), Jody, Todd (Naomi), Diane (Mark), Quinn (Wendy), Brian (Heidi), Shane, Jason, Mitchell (Jasmyn), Debra (Assar), Matthew, Dana; great grandchildren, Madison (Josh) and their daughters, Sophia and Annabelle; Layne, Taya, Jade, Gage, Michaela, Teagan, Sean, Natasha, Tyler, Nicholas, Julie, Drew, Isla, Pearl, Leo, Reagan, Kiera, Madison, Walter, Gordon, Stanley, Brome and Delia; as well as numerous other relatives and friends.

Emelia was predeceased by her husband, Joe; son, John; siblings, Joseph Domanski, Leon Domanski, Raymond Domanski, Cecelia (Gordon) Philips, Eleanor (Fred) Atkin, Lillian (Lionel) Farrell, Marion (Leonard) Liknes; brother in law, Albert (Muriel) Murphy; sister in law, Irene Murphy.

Sorry for your loss, I do have good memories of who I knew as "Grandma Canada" when she used to come visit when I was a kid. I am guessing Kurt Ruzicka and I came to know her as such as we couldn't understand how we were related! I remember her as a happy person who always had a smile on her face. Kevin & Heather Moore

Our sympathy to all of the Murphys in the loss of your mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. We have great memories of Emelia when our families got together. We were always treated with great hospitality when visiting and she certainly made sure that we ate well. It seems Emilia always took care of family and friends before herself. Cherish the memories. Joe & Dawn Moore
