Lovingly remembered by nine great -great nieces and nephews. Sadly missed by her many, many dear friends across Canada, who knew her as Mac. Muriel's nursing career began in 1937, when she entered the School of Nursing at The Toronto General Hospital, where she was employed until joining the the RCAF in 1941. Her Air Force Service career took her to Europe twice- to England during the Second World War and to Metz, France where she was the matron of the RCAF's NATO Air Division from September 1954 to September 1957. She was matron of RCAF hospitals at Goose Bay, Nfld, and Rockcliffe, Ontario from 1957 to 1959. In 1958, she became an honourary nursing sister to the queen and was re- appointed for a second term in 1959 where she was presented to Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip at Government House. In 1961, she was promoted from Squadron Leader to Wing Commander of the Canadian Armed Forces. Muriel was the first woman to attain this rank in Canada. In 1963 she was invested to the Order of the St. John Ambulance by Governor General Vanier at Rideau Hall. This was followed by work on the Surgeon General's staff and the appointment as matron of the Canadian Forces Medical Services. She held this post until her retirement from the Air Force in 1965. Shortly afterwards she moved to Edmonton where she nursed at the University of Alberta until her retirement. In 2002, she was awarded the Queen's Golden Jubilee Award. When she was 86, she decided to move back to Ontario to be with her family. This was a huge move but most beneficial for everyone. The family immediately embraced Muriel from the eldest niece to the youngest great nephew. It was a lovely time together, indeed.

Marvin Norman Hargreaves - In Memoriam
HARGREAVES, Marvin Norman - October 18, 1932 - October 18, 2005. In loving memory of a dear husband, father grandfather and great-grandfather. GRAMPA There was no warning No chance to say good-bye Now our hearts are full of tears And our minds are asking why. So suddenly God took you In His arms to heaven above Maybe he needed a new chef One whose main ingredient was love. The barbecues now unheated The van will never run Your chair sits empty And our family chains undone. We know though, that you're still around Your arms wrapped around us when we cry And when it's you we're missing You lift our spirits towards the sky. By Christina Beatty.
