My sincere condolences to Muriel's family. She was a delight to see each time she came into the municipal offices to pick up the key for the Market Building for Senior activities. Her smile was genuine and I liked her very much.
What a character!! Muriel regularly attended performances at the Concert Hall and was not shy in sharing her opinions. I'll miss you.
Muriel was such a strong, confident, brilliant woman with a magnetic personality. I used to see her several times a week for the last fifteen years. She would hint at her amazing past and reveal little snippets of the incredible life she lived. I would have loved to share some of those experiences with her. I imagine she would have been quite a force in her youth. Muriel touched so many lives. I will miss you "dolly".
I only knew Muriel for a short time at Palisades but she always brought such a large smile to my face every time I saw her. She was funny and incredibly charming, brightening my day no matter what. I am grateful that I got to meet her and she will be greatly missed.
Rest in Peace beautiful.. It was a honour to get to know you. Xo

Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in Heaven where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy. Muriel was an amazing, strong and funny person. I am glad I got to know her and spend time with her for a few years. We enjoyed playing bridge together. Love you, Muriel.
Our heartfelt condolences Muriel. Was a very lovely person We knew her from St Peter's Anglican Church. She would come to dinners there on Thursdays. I always made sure I saved her a banana off the cart before super. She would always have problems. With herhearing aids so you would almost have to tell at her. Andy used to. Tease her and she loved it. When she was in Palative. We would visit her taking her banañns. And she she went nuts for rice krispies. Then she moved to Palasades. That's when Covid hit. Muriel went through hell with her cancer. On her lreg and always had pain in her shoulder. We met. Linda and her husband. Now my dear friend you are. In God's hands in Heaven. Rest In Peace
I use to be Muriel’s mailman. She was such a nice lady. I’m so sorry to hear of her passing.
Muriel's Family: Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. We enjoyed playing cards with Muriel and she really enjoyed things when she won. She is missed. Marg & Ed
Linda and Denis and family Cobourg and families will miss a wonderful character who has been part of the town for many years. Muriel was a great neighbour and it was always with delight that she greeted everyone. Thinking of you. Christine (LaBrash) Thompson
