Muriel found the most joy in life being with her beloved husband, Richard, and playing the organ surrounded by a house filled with family. She loved the holidays and spent countless hours on her extensive holiday decorations. She will be deeply missed by her family and countless dear friends. "The family would like to thank her loving caregiver Graciela De Marco for her dedication and love for Mom throughout the past several years"
