SHEPHERD, Muriel MURIEL JEAN SHEPHERD 1929 – 2023 Muriel Jean Shepherd was born August 9, 1929, in Portage La Prairie, MB to parents Evelyn and Douglas Yuill, crossing over to their welcoming arms on January 13, 2023.
She is survived by her children, Robin Ingram, Kevin (Dixie) Ingram, Rory (Shelley) Ingram, Sean (Linda) Ingram, Sandy (Mernie) Russell and Erin (Robert) White; fourteen grandchildren Robyn (Liam) Hicks, Rhena (Bernie) Failing, Ryan Clubb, Angela (Joshua) Blanchard, Coleman (Andrea) Ingram, Holly Ingram (Evan), Benn (Lilia) Ingram, Ashley (Tyler) Conley, Hannah Ingram, Emily and Carly Russell, Michael (Felicia) White, Seamus (Teale) White, Seanade (Riley) Kirchner, Liam (Kate) White. These wonderful people gave her twenty-two great grands, who lovingly called her GG: Maeb, Gwyn, Brooklyn (Kash), Reese, Ben, Alley, Danni, Galilee, Josh, Freya, Willow, Alex, Vlad, Morgan, Carter, Mack, Dominic, Lexi, Alaina, Charlee, Evelyn, and Brianna. Muriel is also survived by her only brother Allan (Joan) Yuill, and two dear sisters Beth Money and Susan (Bill) Roll as well as Charlie’s daughters Rhonda (Randy) Terri (Rus) and their family.
She is predeceased by her beloved parents, her lifelong friend and beloved husband Charlie, her sister Marion, her beloved daughters, Jill and April and her much loved son-in-law Dwight, as well as Garnet Ingram and John Russell.
From the moment, at age sixteen when Muriel first put a foot on Alberta soil, she was a proud and devoted resident especially cherishing the Crowsnest Pass where she and infant Robin came in 1946 to join Garnet in Frank. She lived in the Pass until 1983 when she moved to Lethbridge to marry Charlie.
They enjoyed flying, motor biking and travelling to numerous faraway places. In 2010 they moved to Martha’s House and retirement. After Jill’s passing in 2014, she spent a short time in St. Albert, but the call of the mountains was too great and in 2015 she moved to Whispering Winds in Pincher Creek and then to Vista Village in 2020 until her passing.
Always a people person, Muriel loved life and never had an issue making new friends wherever she called home. A writer since she clutched her first pencil, she wrote weekly columns for two newspapers, had various things published and was a diary keeper for over forty years as well as a knitter since the age of six. She felt her greatest accomplishment was her exceptional family and the struggles they shared to survive as a family. She is also remembered by many relatives from her marriages and friends going back to childhood.
The family would like to express their heartfelt thanks to everyone who gave Muriel such amazing care.
Cremation has been entrusted to Martin Brothers Riverview Chapel.
