Passed peacefully surrounded by love on Tuesday August 21, 2018 at Wellington Terrace Long Term Care Home in Fergus.

She will be deeply missed by her sons Peter and Doug and daughter Tina, grandchildren Lara (Tim), Robin, and Erin as well as by her nieces, nephew and extended family and friends.
Muriel had a lifetime love of baseball starting with the Woodstock Shamrocks and Crushies, continuing with women’s softball leagues, and actively following her Blue Jays. Muriel retired from City of Guelph in 1990 and was active in the Guelph Industrial Softball league well into her 70’s, Guelph Calligraphy Guild, and Guelph Stamp Club, among others. She returned to her love of painting in her late 70’s, attending many classes at both Southampton Art School and the Evergreen Senior Centre.
