Muriel Rosetta Huffaker, age 90, passed away on Monday November 16 2015 at the Point Grey Private Hospital in Vancouver BC Canada. She was born on June 17 1925 in Lamar, Colorado, the daughter of Clifford J. and Lelia Jane Mendenhall Marriott. A resident of Vancouver, she formerly lived in Sidney BC and Brantford Ontario where she was a homemaker.
Muriel was preceded in death by her parents; her husband Philip Allison Huffaker of 44 years; 4 brothers – Wayne, Floyd, Paul and Coy Marriott; 2 sisters – Erma Cathcart and Virgie Silvey. She is survived by 2 daughters – Debra Huffaker of Vancouver BC and Laura Huffaker of Riverview NB; her son Russell Huffaker of Dresden Ontario; 2 grandchildren – Brendan Little of Vancouver BC and Hanna Little of Vancouver BC; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Muriel did not want a service and so her daughters will honour her wishes. Her ashes will be scattered amongst those of her husband Phil. As expressions of sympathy, donations can be made to St. Francis Advocates.
Muriel would have liked to dance her way to heaven. We hope she's dancing there now.
