Muriel was born in Eatonia, Sask. and lived on the farm near LaPorte. She took her nurses training at St. Paul’s Hospital in Saskatoon. She was actively involved on the farm south of Eston for many years. In her later years, she spent the winters in Winfield, B.C. and her summers at her beloved cabin at the park south of Eston.
Her two passions in life were playing cards and nature. One reason she moved to Winfield is that area is known as the “Bridge” capital of the world. Mom played Bridge up to five times a week and was known as “No Trump Muriel” by the players in the Kelowna area. Mom believed that nature and the environment were of the utmost importance. She would sit in her chair by the window in her cabin and she knew all the species of birds by sight and by sound. Mom was a very independent woman who was up to any challenge. She travelled around the world on a freighter with her sister, Joyce. She was never afraid to voice her opinion even if it was controversial. You may not have agreed with her but you could never question her remarkable intelligence.
The family would like to thank the staff at Heritage Manor in Kindersley for taking such good care of mom in her final two years. We would like to thank Pat Layton, for being a wonderful friend, Canasta player, and for having the occasional Caesar with Muriel. The family would also like to extend our appreciation to Gail Milton for being such a wonderful friend and neighbor.
As per Muriel’s wishes there will no ceremony but the family will be having a celebration of her life at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Eston Riverside Regional Park.
