Muriel Lorraine Langford (nee Zoo)

November 15, 2012


Langford, Muriel Lorraine (Zoo) It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Muriel Langford, beloved spouse, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Survived by spouse Harry Langford, sister June Anne Spencer, brother Jim Robertson (Verna), son Glen Langford (Shelley), daughter Carol Perry, granddaughter Brynne Langford, grandson Jaden Langford, granddaughter Taryn Silver (Dave), and greatgranddaughter Anika Silver, and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.

Muriel grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and moved to Calgary, Alberta, at the age of twenty-one. She relocated to Nanaimo, British Columbia, in 1988 to be closer to family, and worked for many years at Nanaimo Home Support as a receptionist. Muriel retired in 1994, when her youngest grandchild was born, and assumed a key role in her care. A kind, generous and loving person, she maintained close ties with many friends, who loved her very dearly. Muriel had a passion for knitting; in addition to the many treasured creations produced for family and friends, she frequently contributed her lovely handmade items to fundraisers and charitable organizations. Following a stroke in 2010, Muriel lived in the Complex Care Unit at Nanaimo Senior’s Village, where she was loved by all who cared for her so well. A very special thanks to all the staff there, who made her last days so very comfortable. A service will be held at Trinity United Church (6234 Spartan Road, Nanaimo) on Friday, November 23 at 11:00am.
