    Muriel babysat my 2 children in the early to mid 80s in the North end. Such a wonderful and loving woman. I so appreciated her and her seeming to enjoy the walk to and from my home (Hawley st) to spend day with my lil ones! Know my daughter had been in recent contact and both she and Muriel both reminisced about the “good old days”!
    Muriel will be missed by those of us whom she shared her love and for just being “her.”
