MURIEL SADIE MYERS
January 30, 1933 - April 21, 2020
Muriel was born in Trenton, Nova Scotia, the 10th of 14 siblings born to Benjamin and Josephine Bugden of Park Street.
She is survived by her loving husband Frederick Myers, daughters, Joy Myers Piske (Frank Piske) of Narol, Manitoba and Nancy DeFrancesco of Vancouver; grandchildren, Michael DeFrancesco, Joy (Val) Litwin, Andria DeFrancesco, Kiefer Myers Piske and Nicholas Myers Piske; great-grandson Gaël Ocean Litwin. Also surviving are sisters, Anna (Norm) Felton and Bertha MacNeil; sisters-in-law, Muriel Bugden, Elaine Bugden, Dorothy Bugden, Vera MacDougall and Helen Myers Hannah; as well as many nieces and nephews.
Muriel was predeceased by her infant son Stanley, her parents, sisters, Ada, Verna, Elizabeth, Jean, and brothers, Neil, Scott, Alton, Leslie, Daniel, Gorden and William.
Muriel graduated from Success Business College in Truro, NS. She was secretary to the General Manager of Eastern Car Company in Trenton, NS until she married Fred in December 1954. They recently celebrated their 65th Wedding Anniversary. They lived in Trenton, Moncton, Saskatoon and Winnipeg during Fred's career with CN Rail, retiring in Winnipeg in 1993.
Muriel was an advocate for mental health and for those in need. She was a passionate Christian who lived her faith by the minute, trusting God for love, guidance and support throughout her life. She was a lifelong member of the Church of the Nazarene and most recently attended the New Hope Church of the Nazarene in Winnipeg.
Being together with siblings, children, grandchildren was always the highlight of her days. Muriel valued family above all.
We wish to acknowledge the many doctors, nurses, aides and support staff at Misericordia, Concordia Place and Riverview Health Centre who treated her with loving care and compassion.
Burial will take place in a private ceremony on Monday, April 27 at Glen Lawn Memorial Gardens. A memorial service may take place at a later date.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)
My deepest sympathy on the passing of dear Muriel. The love and support she received from her beloved husband Fred and from the rest of the family was a testament to the way Muriel lived her life. Your loss is great...May the memories you have give you comfort during this difficult time. Sincerely, Deb May - Posted by: Deb May (Friend from Riverview) on: May 09, 2020
Dear Joy and Fred, I met Muriel in the mid 1990s when I attended the Church of the Nazarene when it was temporarily located on Scurfield and later when the Church moved to st Mary’s Road. She was such a lovely woman with an open heart and love for God. It has been many years since I have seen her and also yourselves as I remember you both well from my time attending the Church during this period. I am sorry for the loss of your dear Mother and wife. I know that she is in a beautiful place because of the promises of her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. - Posted by: Betty McGregor (Church) on: Apr 25, 2020
