It is with great sadness that the family of Muriel Chambers announces her peaceful passing on Sunday, September 20, 2020 at the age of 85 after, thankfully, a very short illness.
Muriel loved her job as a federal government employee of the United States Army. She received many awards and commendations during her tenure and was very proud of the work she did supporting our soldiers and government.
She loved her many vacations to locations such as Hawaii, Canada, Bermuda, Bahamas, Las Vegas, Florida, Niagara Falls, and the 1,000 island region of New York. She easily made friends and is known as a loving, giving and kind-hearted woman. One time during a vacation a women she befriended admired her shirt and Muriel later gave her that shirt.
She was always ready to laugh and enjoy life, regardless of hardships that came her way. Not one to complain, she was strong and steady and quick to give comfort to others, not asking for it herself. She loved to read books, do crossword puzzles, knit, travel, listen to country music, and watch old games shows on TV. She loved her family with all her heart and soul. She will be missed.
She is predeceased by her father William, mother Lillian, sisters Naomi and Beth, her beloved son, Kevin and her granddaughter Michelle Ramsey. Surviving family members are sons Roy and Todd; daughters Vicki, Susan and Karen; son-in-law Karl McIntosh; daughter-in-law Aida Poulsen; 8 grandchildren, Kalena Soliman, Brandon Poulsen, Nicole Poulsen, Tyler Whitt, Dana Katz, Jason Katz, Eric Katz, and Tina McIntosh and 9 great-grandchildren, Kai Soliman, Alexander Katz, Devon Katz, Alexa Katz, Bella Katz, Kailee Katz, Silas Katz, Lucas Hausknecht, and Dylan Hausknecht.
Visitation will be held on Wednesday, September 23 from 1 – 2 pm at the Damiano Funeral Home. Entombment will follow at Woodbine Mausoleum in Oceanport.
