Byron, Chester, Jeffery, Kathy, Mark and the rest of her family; We felt very sad when we received the news of Muriel’s death. She was such a likeable person and she kept up a very strong fight right to the end. A family is always broken down when losing a loved one in death so we are going to try to cheer you up a little by having you read the passage at JOHN 5:28,29 in your BIBLE as it guarantees Muriel a resurrection. For now she is asleep and feels no pain of any kind. Our sincerest sympathy, Del & Mary.
Callie & Kevin Uhlman

Byron, Jeff, Chester and Family: Some of my fondest memories are from the summers I spent with you when I was young. Aunt Muriel showed me first hand, how important family is. She always made me feel like I belonged. I will miss her dearly……… and she will always be “my other Mom”. God Bless.
