Obituary of Carol Alfreda Murphy

Please share a memory of Carol to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.


It is with heavy hearts our family announces the passing of our Mom, Carol Alfreda Murphy of Fredericton, NB on Saturday, January 7, 2023, at Pine Grove Nursing Home. Born on January 14, 1938, in Chipman, NB, she was a daughter of the late Orland and Ida (McAfee) Fidler. 


Carol dedicated her life in caring for others from an early start at the Saint John Orphanage. She continued her dedication to caring for her Mother until her passing. She also cared for an abundance of children and the elderly over the years. She loved quilting, puzzling, Scrabble, Skip-Bo, reading, watching movies, drives, and spending time with family and friends all whilst consuming endless amounts of ice cream. 


Carol is survived by her children, Daryl Hargrove (Donna) of Ottawa, ON, Dwayne Hargrove (Sandra) of Burton, NB, Donald Hargrove (Corlene) of Chipman, NB and Melanie Hargrove (Reg) of Fredericton, NB; Grandchildren, Patricia Arrowsmith (Charles), Amy Genge (Jeff), Lindsay Hargrove, Kristen Hargrove (Georges), Joshua Hargrove (Molly), Jessica Pitre (Eric), Veronique Pitre (Brandon), Vanessa Pitre (Tyler); Great Grandchildren, Zachary, Morgan, Madison, Sophie, Adonai, Rhoen, Lucas, Hudson, Sullivan, Abigail, Jack, Grace, Harrison, Olivier and Alexis; Siblings, Judith Clarke of Chipman, NB, Stanley Fidler (Lorna) and Lynwood Fidler (Grace Anne) both of Chipman, NB; and several nieces and nephews. 


Besides her parents, Carol was predeceased by her first husband, Maurice Hargrove and her second husband Ernest Murphy; grandson, Christopher Hargrove; siblings, Vance Fidler and Geraldine Keillar; and aunt, Muriel Glenn.
