My heart goes to family and friends,

She is one of my most memorable ladies that resided here at Brookdale.
I loved that I could always get her to laugh but she ended up making me laugh even more.
Always a twinkle in her eye :)

I have known Muriel and her family for over 40 years. Muriel was my neighbor. She was a wonderful kind person. Loved spending time with her on our deck talking, She loved life and lived hers to the fullest. She had a wonderful personality and was really active. She was always going somewhere. I loved that about her. Our thoughts are with her family during this time. RIP Muriel! Mary Lou Sparkuhle and Kevin Segreve

There’s a special place in all of our hearts for our mothers, just like there’s a special place in every mother’s heart for her children. You must continue to carry her memory in that special place in your heart. We are sincerely sorry for the loss of your Mom.
