Muriel Arvilla Marcinuk

October 23, 1923 - September 26, 2011


Muriel Arvilla Marcinuk born Muriel Arvilla Brewster on October 23, 1923 in Haverhill, Massachusetts. Muriel met a like-minded and honorable sailor, Joe Marcinuk, and married him on October 10, 1948. On October 15, 1949 Joe and Muriel brought a new little boy into the world and into their lives. Joey Marcinuk. In 1961 the Marcinuk family moved to Alaska where Muriel attended nursing school. While nursing, Muriel being Muriel turned down many promotions and financial increases, enabling her to focus her full attention on patient care. That’s where her heart was, and what a big heart it was.
Some eighteen years later, Joe and Muriel once again pulled anchor and moved to their favorite piece of “heaven on earth”. This beautiful acreage on the Arrow Lakes, which they had visited often, became their home for over a quarter century.
Muriel and Pappa Joe spent many years establishing this new home. She spent long days lovingly planting their fruit trees, cultivating their gardens and tending to their four legged friends.
This soon became a “Gathering Place”. Muriel and Pappa Joe were special people who wanted to share the Love of Jesus with many others. The campsite, as it became known, was a place where you would often hear a group of harmonizing voices singing to the accompaniment of guitars and accordions through all seasons of the year and without a doubt, also accompanied by some pretty good food, especially the renowned pies baked from scratch by Muriel.
In December 2006 after 58 years together, Muriel’s beloved Pappa Joe went to be with the Lord.
Muriel had a Deep and True relationship with her Lord, whom she loved very much. Today Muriel is with him forever.
Muriel leaves behind her loving son Joey and her sister Elizabeth Brewster.
Muriel is today rejoicing in the presence of her Savior and no doubt is celebrating the reunion with Pappa Joe along her many believing friends who went before her.
Let us rejoice and celebrate her life.
