MURIEL JOAN MCGIMPSEY (SMITH)
Born: Nov 26, 1929
Date of Passing: Jun 11, 2020Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
MURIEL JOAN MCGIMPSEY
Left to cherish her memory are her husband Clifford; five children, Gary (Patricia), Gail, Gwen, Gord (Patty) and Guy (Cathy); nine grandchildren and six great-grandchildren (plus two more on the way!). She is also survived by her brothers, Harry and Dave and sister June. Predeceased by grandson Joel, brothers, Art, Jack and Stan, and sister Nona.
Muriel was born in Winnipeg on November 26, 1929, to Guy and Muriel Smith. Muriel worked at Richardson and Sons until getting married on November 25, 1950. They had five children within 10 years and her family became the centre of her life. She was well known for her cooking, baking, sewing and knitting. Her grandchildren have wonderful memories of playing games and doing crafts with grandma. Her great-grandchildren brought her great joy.
We would like to thank home care for their kind care for Muriel at her home in Transcona, and staff at Meadowood Manor where she lived for the last three months.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date when restrictions are lifted.
Thanks Mom for all you have done
for creating the best family anyone
could have. It is because of you that
we all know what is important in life.
