Muriel was gently called Home on February 21, 2009 ending her life’s journey in her 92nd year.
She was a dearly loved and cherished mother, grandma and great-grandma who will be remembered for her kindness to others, her sense of humour, her love of language and literature, her sewing and knitting skills, but mostly for the nurturing love and guidance she gave to her family. She is survived by her daughter Jane (Tom) Lucin of Calgary, her son Tom Dunlap of Montreal; grandchildren Tanja (Peter O’Leary) Lucin, Dana Lucin, Lauren (Ira Clay) Dunlap, Kristin Dunlap; along with great-grandchildren Jean-Olivier and Sarah O’Leary, Christopher-James, Jordan and Marya Dunlap, as well as many nieces and nephews.
Muriel was born in Canora, SK on May 9, 1917 and in 1919 the family moved to Stettler, AB. In 1942 she married Stuart Dunlap. Muriel and Stuart raised their family in Stettler and were very active in the community until 1963 when they sold the family pharmacy business. They continued their life journey living in Calgary, Banff, Victoria and Penticton, finally settling in Calgary in 1987 to be closer to family.
Muriel was predeceased by her husband Stuart in 2001, mother Eva in 1951, and father Thomas in 1954. She was also predeceased by sister, Georgina in 1919, sister Norma in 1935, sister Gladys and brother Robert in 2006, and sister Eva in 2008.
The family extends a very special thank you to Betty Norman, the staff on Unit 400, and all others at the Beverly Centre Glenmore for their excellent care and compassion during the years Mom was in their care. At Muriel’s request there will be a private family gathering in lieu of a service. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
