It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She left us October 25th, 2012 in the Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria at the age of 90 years. Muriel was born in Vancouver to her proud parents Bert and Jean Booker. At a young age Mom met and married Garnet and shortly thereafter moved to the Shuswap. They spent 48 years together devoting their time raising their children and running the family logging business. Sadly Garnet predeceased Muriel in 1987.
Years later while on a vacation Mom met Bill whom she later married. They resided in Victoria and spent time travelling around the world and enjoyed a happy life together.
She was predeceased by her daughter Marquita, son Brian, sister Lorraine and son-in-law Kurt.
She is survived by her loving husband Bill, sister Doreen, daughters Bev, Linda (Terry), Wendy (Bill), Donna (Andy) daughter-in-law Marg, 11 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren
A service was held on Saturday November 3rd, 2012 at 2 p.m. at Bowers Funeral Service, 440 10th Street, Salmon Arm.
In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to the charity of your choice.
