Muriel Thompson (nee Normore) passed away peacefully at the Corner Brook Long Term Care on Friday, December 28, 2018 at the age of 104 years. The daughter of George and Annie Normore, Muriel was born at Botwood August 4, 1914 one week after the onset of WWI. She moved with her family to the Bay of Islands, eventually settling at Gearyville, Corner Brook. Widowed at age 26 after just two years of marriage when her husband Henry (Harry) Wells was killed working on the railway, Muriel emigrated at the beginning of WWII to Toronto where she worked in factories devoted to the War Effort. There she later met her second husband James Thompson whom she married on Sept 10, 1966. They moved to Pasadena, NL in 1968 and back to Gearyville, Corner Brook a few years later where Muriel was an avid observer of the life in the Harbour, and an active bowler, walker and motorist well into her 90’s. Muriel was widowed the second time on May 31, 1981. She moved to Mountain View Estates in 2007 and from there to Corner Brook Long Term Care in 2010, successfully determined to never have to move again. Muriel was a social being and fully participated in the social and recreational life wherever she lived including CBLTC. Predeceased by her five siblings Grace, Ernest, Clarence, Calvin and Beatrice, Muriel leaves to mourn her nieces Mary Normore and Linda Bradburn, nephews Calvin Jr. and Wayne Normore, and Sidney Thompson, great-nephew Douglas Tapp and their families and a large circle of other relatives and friends. Visitation will take place from Fillatre’s Funeral Home, 4 St. Mark’s Ave. Corner Brook on Sunday, December 30, 2018 from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm.
