Born in Port Maitland, July 5,1938, she was the only daughter to the late Ernest and Lena (Perry) Atkinson. Muriel was an office secretary for E.K Spinney for 22 years. She was one of the best crafters in Yarmouth County. She took such great pride in all her work. Her and Leonard traveled many miles over the past 25 plus years to craft shows and fairs all over South West Nova Scotia and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. She had a great passion for flowers and doing yard work, mowing the lawn and sitting in her sun porch. She had a love for dogs and going to the Windless Restaurant for fish and chips. She is survived by her loving and devoted husband, Leonard and special niece, Ellen Cottreau. Due to COVID 19 the family has decided not to have a visitation or funeral service.

I remember Muriel as a student in Port Maitland and in recent years saw her many times with her crafts and on her many walks about town. My condolences in your loss.

Dear Leonard , Peter and I were very sorry to hear that you'd lost Muriel . My Dad, Ken Durkee, likely worked with Muriel for most of the twenty plus years she worked at E.K. Spinney's . She would have had to endure his teasing . He spoke of her often . She was a lovely lady . I still have a few crafts I purchased from her over the years and enjoy them a lot . Please accept our sincere condolences. We are so sorry for your loss . Patty (Ollenberger) Saulnier and Peter Saulnier
