Once again it is the time of year when the Farmer's Market in Puyallup is a Saturday feature. I will remember always those wonderful days of sharing a space and a friendship with Muriel. Remember loaning her a blue hat to keep the sun out of her eyes. Remember struggling to put up the canopy and get the booth set up and ready. Remember sitting and talking when things were slow. Remember the beauty of the soul that was Muriel. Thank you, Lord , for giving me the gift of knowing her.

Muriel epitomized the Christian woman. Always loving and giving to everyone she met. She joyfully worked extra hours in her garden to be able to share with those who needed food. She played the piano at church. She gave generously to charity, and most important she gave of herself without reservation. It was my privilege to know her. Hers was a life well lived and her loving soul will always be an inspiration to me.

Muriel was my youngest aunt, about halfway in age between my mother and me. I always loved being around her. When we got together for family gatherings she always had such interesting things to talk about: books, music, etc. I actually had a chance to visit her classroom once, back in 1984, when I was on furlough from Brazil. Brazil was one of the places featured in the social studies book, so she invited me to go and share firsthand experiences with the class. It was fun to share and to answer the questions that the kids had. I didn't realize until I got the notice from Steve about this site that Aunt Muriel and I share the same middle name (Joyce) !

Muriel was an inspiring neighbor. She always managed and accomplished her tasks with love and insight. I observed her completing degrees and instructing classes. I noted her teaching her own children piano, whiled working tirelessly at various farming duties.She modeled Christian motherhood, and accomplished all with humor and love. I was privileged to know her.
