April 22, 1925 – April 7, 2023
at the age of 97 years:
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Muriel Sloan, 2 weeks shy of her 98th birthday. Muriel was born in Edmonton, Alberta to proud parents Bernie and Ethel Dennett. She was the eldest sibling to Marion, Pat, Bud and Billie.
Muriel spent her younger years in Alberta, completing grade 1 though 12 at St. Joseph’s Convent in Red Deer, before enlisting in the navy during WWII on her 18th birthday. Shortly after the war ended she met her husband Alfred with whom she had four children; Don (Jennifer), Dawnalea, Deane (Kathy) and Dennett and 8 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. They lived throughout Alberta while spending many summers in Blind Bay, BC before retiring there permanently in 1991.
Muriel was pre-deceased by her husband Alf, grandson Tarl, daughter-in-law Kathy, and youngest son Dennett.
Muriel passed away peacefully at home in her sleep, with her dog Judy the 4th curled up beside her. At her request there will not be a service and her ashes will be placed with Alf in the family plot in Red Deer.
I have many years of great memories of Muriel. We had lots of laughter, some tears and the best hugs! She told great stories and the funniest jokes. I remember her bringing our two dogs home, they took off on their ownand she seen them so she lured them into her vehicle with cookies and brought them home Such a gem she was!
She was a treasure to have known ❤️
Muriel was a very special lady and a very good friend. We are going to miss our visits and enjoying the Chinese dinners we often had. The sweet peas are going to continue to grow to remind us of her. Our deepest sympathy.
Auntie Muriel is missed and her passing leaves an empty spot in our hearts, but we also know it will heal with the gratefulness for all the wonderful memories we have of her. She lived a long life full of family and friends. She was kind, generous, loved a good laugh, and always had an open door and heart.
We love you.
Tim and Laura
