Early Sunday morning, December 13, 2020, Muriel Keen was called home by her Lord, Jesus Christ, at the age 90 after a brave battle with cancer. She passed peacefully at home surrounded by her loved ones. Muriel is survived by her two children and their partners, grand-children, great-grand-children, and many friends she loved dearly.

She married her high school sweetheart, John Paul Keen, on April 29th, 1950 and they had two children, Richard and Kathleen Keen. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
