    The Mackintosh Family & friend Audrey Grant (Marchant) convey their sincere condolences on the passing of Muriel. Our families were longtime friends of the Thoburn Family, Ralph Anne and Muriel when they lived in Winnipeg and were all attendees at the marriage celebration of Muriel & Buster. Once the Stewarts moved to Calgary we lost contact. Again our deepest sympathies on Muriel’s passing.
