Muriel Evelyn Andrews

April 22, 1923 – April 27, 2013

Muriel was born in Manitoba, Canada, the eldest of five children born to George and Edith Monson. Her parents immigrated from Ireland and England, respectively, and met and married in Canada. The family moved to Esparto, where her father worked on a ranch and her mother did the cooking for all the ranch hands.

After her father passed away in 1937, Muriel went to work to help support her brothers and sisters. Her mother moved the family to Davis, remarried and another sister was born in 1941. In Davis, Muriel met “the love of her life,” Norman Monroe Andrews. They were married in 1943 and lived on Third Street in Davis for 58 years until Norman’s passing.

She was a member of the Rebekahs and the Ladies Auxiliary for many years. Unable to have children, they helped raise numerous nieces and nephews. Together they owned many cats over the years, but only two dogs, Butch and Snowball. Bowling, gardening and taking cruises were their passion. Norman passed away in 2001.

In 2003, Muriel moved to Sparks, Nev., to be near family. An unfortunate injury forced Muriel to move to Cascades of the Sierra living facility, where she lived for several years with Snowball until her passing.

She was pre-deceased by her parents, George and Edith, sisters Catherine (Peggy) and Joyce, and brothers Joseph and William. She is survived by her Godchildren Debbie Johnston and Christian Wonder and sister Wilma Elizabeth (Betty). Also surviving her are numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, great-great-nieces and -nephews and two very special great-great-great-nieces, as well as her beloved Snowball.

Muriel passed peacefully in her sleep five days after her 90th birthday. Burial will be on Saturday, May 18, at noon in the veterans section of the Davis Cemetery, 820 Pole Line Road, followed by a celebration of her life at her and Norman’s favorite bakery, Konditorei, 2710 Fifth St.

Muriel had many humorous sayings and would like everyone to keep their sense of humor. Her family would like to express heartfelt thanks for the kind and loving care given by the employees of Cascades of the Sierra, especially The Lodge and to St. Mary’s Hospice.
