She was predeceased by her loving husband of 56 years, Allan; parents Christine and Angus MacDonald; and sisters Adelaide and Shirley.
If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane. I would walk right up to Heaven and bring you back again. No farewell words were spoken, No time to say “Goodbye”. You were gone before I knew it, and only God knows why. My heart still aches with sadness, and secret tears still flow. What it meant to love you -No one can ever know. But now I know you want me to mourn for you no more; To remember all the happy times life still has much in store. Since you’ll never be forgotten, I pledge to you today ~ A hollowed place within my heart is where you’ll always stay.
A gathering of family and friends will be held at the Kensington Legion on March 18th at 11:00 am. In living memory of Muriel Goodridge, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Crowfoot, 82 CROWFOOT CIRCLE N.W.
