BOYLE – Muriel Gertrude

May 20, 1920 – March 5, 2011

It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great- grandmother, and aunt.

Muriel is survived by her loving husband of thirty years, James H Boyle, her children; Richard Donnithorne of Calgary, Jan Donnithorne of Markham, ON, and Marcia DeSantis of Cape Elizabeth, ME She is also survived by her step-children; Kathleen (Leonard), Howard, Timothy, Ann (Armstrong), Mary (Phelan), and Janie (Sondergard) and her seventeen grandchildren. She also leaves to mourn her niece Christine (Merry) and family, and her youngest brother John of B.C.

Muriel was predeceased by her first husband, Commander RJF Donnithorne in 1972, her sister Kathleen (Collins), and her brothers Roy, Clifford, and James.

Muriel’s biggest joys in life were her family, her home and her garden. She was a “true blue” Canadian and loved her country passionately.

As per Muriel’s wishes a small private family service will be held in her memory. Forward condolences through A special thank you to Care West Sarcee Hospice for their compassion and care. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made to the charity of their choice.

In living memory of Muriel Boyle, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH Telephone: (403) 276-2296.

    Richard, Marcia, Jan & families,

    I want to tell you how sorry I am to have heard that your mom passed away. When my mom (Darla Williams) called to give me the news, she said that her best friend in the whole wide world had passed away. I have know your mom since I was born. What a lovely lady she was. I would call her every New Years day and we would have a nice chat. She has lifted my spritis so many times and I would feel so good when I got off the phone from her. She will be greatly missed.

    Know that my thoughts are with you all.

    Love & hugs,
    Diane Gravel & family
