She was a homemaker by trade with cooking and baking for her family a daily priority. Prior to her illness Muriel enjoyed many trips throughout New England with her family but loved North Conway, NH the most. With a spirited sense of humor she loved the long car rides – always as a passenger – to many vacations and trips to Foxwoods. In the afternoon you would always find her watching her soaps and Judge Judy. She loved her grandchildren most of all and they were her main focus in life. As a grandmother and great grandmother, she was hands on,
hands down, sit on the floor and play with dolls or cars with whoever was in her audience. She was a strong hardworking sole whose time came to rest and be reunited with her beloved husband, the late Joseph W. Collier.
