The family would like to thank sincerely the staff of the Ridge Meadows Hospital ICU for their diligent efforts to prolong Muriel’s life, and to make her final passing as peaceful as possible. The wife of an army officer, Muriel had a full time job raising five children as the family moved from posting to posting in the Yukon, three Canadian provinces and Germany, before finally settling in Maple Ridge in 1971. She was an enthusiastic bridge player, she loved going to the latest movies, in later years she was a kind and generous grandmother and she always enjoyed her afternoon glass of sherry. She was a memorable person and she will be greatly missed.
