The Compass - - OPINION -

Slipped gen­tly and serenely into the be­yond to join her fam­ily mem­bers, who have gone be­fore, Mrs. Muriel Eleanor Dawe of Clarke’s Beach, aged 63 years. Muriel en­dured a de­bil­i­tat­ing ill­ness dur­ing the last 19 months with quiet ac­cep­tance and com­po­sure, be­ing treated at var­i­ous hos­pi­tals, lat­terly at the Har­bour Lodge Nurs­ing Home, Car­bon­ear, from where she de­parted this life on Sun­day, July 14, 2013. Muriel was the only child of Dou­glas Wil­liams, Phar­ma­cist and his wife Doris (Coombs) Wil­liams of Clarke’s Beach. Muriel, with her hus­band, David H. Dawe, Phar­ma­cist, be­came the third gen­er­a­tion to op­er­ate the fam­ily busi­ness, Wil­liams Drugs, Clarke’s Beach. Muriel was a gifted pi­anist and gave un­stint­ingly of her time as or­gan­ist at Clarke’s Beach United Church from the age of 13, where many fam­i­lies ap­pre­ci­ated her mu­si­cal tal­ents at Sun­day ser­vices and dur­ing their spe­cial oc­ca­sions, whether in sor­row at the fu­neral ser­vice of a loved one or in joy­ous cir­cum­stances at a wed­ding or a christening. Her St. John’s stu­dents may re­call their at­ten­dance at the Muriel Dawe Pi­ano Stu­dio dur­ing the early 1970s. Muriel’s un­timely pass­ing will leave a void in the lives of many in her home­town but the empti­ness in her fam­ily’s life will be im­mea­sur­able. Leav­ing to mourn their loss but with re­mem­brance of happy fam­ily events are; her hus­band of 41 years, David, their two daugh­ters: Char­lotte and hus­band Wayne Kupfer­schmidt, Calgary, Al­berta and Heidi and hus­band Ryan An­drews, Clarke’s Beach; their two grand­sons: Daw­son and Luke An­drews, Clarke’s Beach; and brother-in-law Wal­ter (Ivy) Dawe, Lewisporte. Muriel will be fondly re­mem­bered by Aunt Muriel Mar­shall, Clarke’s Beach and Un­cle New­man Wil­liams, Gan­der. In ad­di­tion to her par­ents, Muriel was pre­de­ceased by her par­ents-in-law, Har­ris and Marion Dawe, Clarke’s Beach and Un­cle Vic Wil­liams, St. John’s. As Muriel re­quested, cre­ma­tion has taken place. Visi­ta­tion for fam­ily and friends will take place at Moore’s Fu­neral Home, Clarke’s Beach on Mon­day from 10-Noon, 2-5 p.m, 7-9 p.m and Tues­day morn­ing from 10-Noon.
