Muriel Kathleen Yates

Muriel passed away peacefully on December 27, 2014 at home with her husband, John, daughter Sharon and son Johnny after a courageous battle with cancer. Born in Toronto, Ontario on February 5, 1929, she is predeceased by her parents George and Doris (Dolly) Marshall, her brother Bob and niece Tanya. She will be sadly missed and forever loved by her family, friends and neighbours. Muriel loved life which included travel, cooking, quilting, family and friends. She was an active member of Mother’s Union, Eastern Star, the Sooke’s Quilting Guild and the Snowbird Quilters in Indio, California and happily volunteered for many community events. Her family would like to thank her neighbours and the home care workers from Beacon Community Services & Sooke Hospice for their compassion and care during her last year.

A celebration of Muriel’s life will be held January 20, 2014 at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, 1962 Murray Road in Sooke at 11 AM.

In lieu of flowers, a donation to Pancreatic Cancer Canada would be appreciated.
