Muriel LEASK (nee Norman)

Muriel Leask (nee Norman)

January 21, 1916 – June 26, 2015


Muriel passed away peacefully at Cottonwoods in Kelowna at the age of 99.

 She was predeceased by her husband Cameron, daughter Jean and her son-in-law Richard, her brother Charles, and sister Evelyn.  She is survived by her brother John, daughter Lorna (Ian), son Ian (Jane), and son Jim (Teresa), her grandchildren David, Robin, Andrew, Jessica, Christopher, Colin, Kelly and Kate, and her great grandchildren Tabitha, Griffin, Harrison and Tessa.

Muriel grew up in Prince Albert, graduated from the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, lived in Saskatoon and then travelled the world supporting the work of Cameron, a CIDA consultant.  She retired on Salt Spring Island and in Kelowna.  The world is a richer place as she taught numerous students to play the piano and through her community work with Girl Guides of Canada, Order of the Eastern Star, Daughters of the Nile, UCWA, various Community Clubs, and a life time of memberships in choirs and choral groups. 

A memorial service will take place at First United Church 721 Bernard, Kelowna, Aug 29, 2015 at 2:00 PM.
