Muriel was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, during WWII to her parents, Bill and Mary Hamar. She immigrated with her family to Canada aboard the Queen Mary ocean liner in 1942. The family lived in Alberta close to Bill’s family before settling permanently on Vancouver Island.
Muriel married Jerry Danielson on September 21, 1956. Together they built a life and raised a family of five children: Geraldine (Gordon); Eric; Leonard (passed 1997); Kirk (Marilyn); and Myles. Love of family was central to Mom’s life. She devoted herself and her considerable resources to providing for the well-being and happiness of her family in so many ways. She also deeply loved her grandchildren and will be missed and lovingly remembered by Jeanine, Kimberly, Erin, Valerii, Sarah, Brittany, Jacob, Jordy, Brandon, and two great-granddaughters Dailynn and Kendall.
Muriel will also be sadly missed by her brother Pat Hamar and his family, as well as many other family members. A special “Thank you” to Lori for always being there.
Muriel will be remembered by many in our community as one of the helpful and friendly staff at the IWA Local I-80 office on Brae Road, Duncan. She was a valued employee for 27 years until she retired in 1994.
In later years, Muriel’s friendships at Rocky Creek Mobile Park were very important to her. To all of Mom’s friends and neighbours, especially Joan, Cathy, Marlene and Tony, many thanks for your loving kindness.
There will be a Celebration of Life on October 25, 2015 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM at the Royal Canadian Legion – Branch 171, 621 First Ave., Ladysmith, BC
Always in our hearts,
forever and always.
