Muriel grew up in Minneapolis with 3 sisters and 1 brother. Her very good friend Patti Bergstrom had a brother named Harold Snow and after spending so much time together, Muriel and Harold fell in love. They got married on May 30th, 1958.
Muriel studied to be a nurse through Northwestern Hospitalâs nursing program. She then worked as a nurse for many years. Muriel encouraged her family to go into the medical field and there are now 2 doctors and 2 nurses in the family!
Her faith was very important to her. She went to Holy Rosary Catholic School. She was very involved with the St. Pius Parish, using her sewing abilities, she made altar cloths and other dÃ©cor for the church.
She was a great âNana watcherâ and helped create so many wonderful memories with her grandchildren. She taught all the kids and grandkids to knit. She put a pool in the backyard in which all the grandkids have great memories spending time with her there. Muriel would host sleepovers and they would play games like cribbage together. She loved to cook and bake with the grandchildren, often making sugar cookies, Sun Vally Idaho pancakes, and plus lots of buttered popcorn. Hot tamales candy was a favorite and always in the house!
Muriel loved to garden and always had the biggest garden in the neighborhood. She grew many different perennial and annual flowers. Roses are her favorite flowers, and they had to be just the right pink! She also enjoyed reading, sewing, knitting, and dancing, especially square dancing.
Muriel was deeply loved and will be greatly missed.
