Muriel, or “Moolie” as she was affectionately known, will be remembered as a generous and loving woman who took great joy in her family and their accomplishments. She continuously put others before herself, and was always there with a kind word, a home cooked meal and a listening ear. She inspired all with her deep faith and devotion, and generous support of her church and other causes. Special thanks to her physician and family friend Dr. Randy Hart for going above and beyond in providing care, and to the staff of Tiffany Village for their support.
