Muriel Carson, 1924 - 2007
Muriel Carson was born on Sept. 28, 1924 and passed away on Aug. 13, 2007 at the age of 82 years.
Muriel was born on her family farm near Conquest, Sask. and was the fifth child of Joseph and Ethel Sibbald. All her school years were spent in Conquest. After Grade 12 she attended St. Paulís School of Nursing in Saskatoon, graduating as an R.N. in 1947.
Muriel met her future husband while in training and married Malcolm (Mac) Carson on May 8, 1948. They moved to High Prairie and a few years later bought farmland in Sunset House where they farmed for nearly 30 years. After retiring, they spent a number of years traveling and settled for a time in the Okanagan before returning to Alberta.
Muriel spent the last year visiting family and friends while fighting a courageous battle with cancer. She had a positive attitude until the end. Her family will remember her as a kind, wonderful woman with a great sense of humour. She will be missed more than words can express. She was a loving mother, compassionate nurse, avid golfer and gardener and loved to read.
She is survived by: her children, Wendy Wilburn (Dan), Louise Potter (Al Smyth), Rick Carson (Jennifer); seven grandchildren including Jennifer Peterson (Brad), Brent Wilburn (Vicki), Jason Potter (Diana), Rick Potter (Julie), James Potter (Shelley), Jessica Carson (Yatin), and Alyssa Carson (Made). She is also survived by her sister-in-laws Gwen Carson, Lea Carson and Olive Sibbald.
Muriel was predeceased by her husband, Mac, and son Jimmy.
At Murielís request there was no funeral.
If friends so desire memorial tributes may be made directly to the Canadian Cancer Society.
