It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Muriel Minnie Dunphy, 95, of Port Elgin. Muriel passed away peacefully at the Sackville Memorial Hospital on Thursday, March 16, 2023  Born in Port Elgin, she was a daughter of the late Harry and Estella (Walton) Ingalls.

Muriel was a member of the Trinity United Church, Port Elgin and had been an active member of the Eastern Star. She had retired from being an elementary school teacher after 35 years but would often talk about her students and share many great memories of her time there. She was very fond of animals, and in particular her cat, Tuck.  She enjoyed painting, clogging and swimming in the Northumberland Strait while spending time at her beloved cottage in Walton's Beach.  Muriel was a devoted and caring mother, grandmother and great grandmother.
