Muriel was a devout Catholic and enjoyed many years of attending daily Mass with her husband Les. There she made many lifelong friends. Growing up in South Boston she still enjoyed her visits to Castle Island. Muriel loved to swim, from her favorite Old Silver Beach on Cape Cod to Singer Island FL. Even getting in the pool when it was only 58 degrees! Muriel was a trooper. She most enjoyed spending time with family and friends. Especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren, they brought so much joy to her life. Muriel will be deeply missed, but her love will live on within all who loved her.

A private service will be held to honor and remember Muriel at Holden-Dunn-Lawler Funeral Home, Westwood, MA and a celebration of life to be held a later date.
