Ann Murphy

For all those who were connected in anyway with Matabeleland tennis, I am sure they will be very sad to learn of the death of Ann Murphy - wife to Phil and mother to Colleen and Sharon. Ann passed away peacefully on 29th February after suffering a heart attack a few days earlier. There was a memorial service for her today at the Methodist Church in Kloof - KwaZulu Natal.

Ann was very involved with Junior tennis in the 70 s / 80 s and managed both Matabeleland Junior teams and Rhodesian Junior Teams. She was also a very loyal member of Suburbs Tennis club along with Phil and youngest daughter Sharon who I think went on to represent Matabeleland at junior level.

I am sure there will be a lot of folk who will be very sad to learn of her passing and it is with great fondness that we remember her.
Thank YouRegards,

  1. dear Maureen,
    I was very sad to hear of Ann's passing. I spent many happy weekends with Ann and Phil, including playing tennis at Suburbs Tennis Club, during the period 1966 to 1970. I worked for a mining group and was based at Pangani Mine in Filabusi - Ann was the office Manager at our central buying office in Bulawayo and was always such a friendly and caring person. Sad to have lost touch after I left Rhodesia in 1970. If I recall, Colleen and Sharon were very small then. I now live in Cape Town and should you have contact with Phil, please pass on my condolences to all.
    best regards,
