Krista Vigneault (Murphy), of Dart­mouth, passed away on Au­gust 2, 2017 at the Hal­i­fax In­fir­mary, with her lov­ing fam­ily by her side.

Krista was born on Christ­mas Day of 1964 in Hal­i­fax to Joseph Murphy and the late Valerie Gil­met (Math­e­son). She grew up in Glace Bay, Nova Sco­tia be­fore set­tling in Hal­i­fax where she raised her fam­ily. She stud­ied Child Stud­ies and Psy­chol­ogy at Mount Saint Vin­cent Univer­sity.

Krista was a won­der­ful mother, de­vot­ing her life to lov­ing and nur­tur­ing her chil­dren, Han­nah and Sam, ex­pos­ing them to all of the joys that life has to of­fer. She shared with her chil­dren her love of read­ing, theatre, mu­sic and the arts. She was ex­cep­tion­ally close to her only sis­ter and best friend, Micki. Krista en­joyed trav­el­ling, gar­den­ing and spend­ing time with fam­ily and friends.

Krista’s kind-hearted, com­pas­sion­ate per­son­al­ity made her well-suited for her work car­ing for se­niors and she de­vel­oped long last­ing re­la­tion­ships with the clients she served. She was a beloved mem­ber of her com­mu­nity and was al­ways will­ing to vol­un­teer her time at school and com­mu­nity events.

Ev­ery­one who came to the house felt wel­come. Krista had a way of lis­ten­ing to ev­ery­one, mak­ing them feel spe­cial and cared for. Her house was of­ten full of friends and fam­ily, mu­sic, food and laugh­ter.

She will be lov­ingly re­mem­bered for her pos­i­tive, sunny nature by her chil­dren, Han­nah and Sam Vigneault; sis­ter, Micki Murphy, and fa­ther, Joe Murphy. She is also sur­vived by many fam­ily mem­bers, Wanda Chisholm, Randy Gil­met (Joanne), Cindi Bar­rett (Tony), Gre­gory Murphy (Florence), Theresa Ban­field (Ge­orge), Mau­reen McIn­tosh (Bill), Bernie Murphy (Mar­i­lyn), Pat Murphy (Mar­i­lyn), Kevin Murphy (Sheila), many cousins, and close friend, Trevor White.

She was pre­de­ceased by her mother, Valerie Math­e­son; aunt and un­cle, Judy and Bill Wil­son; un­cles, Vic­tor Gil­met and Doug Camp­bell, and aunt, El­iz­a­beth O’Keefe.
