Muriel was born on February 1, 1924, to parents Elsie and George Harrison. Mom married the love of her life Douglas Davidson after WWII and dedicated her life to him for 52 years. She treasured her children and grandchildren, embracing every moment with them. She encouraged, comforted, and provided for us all. Mom faced hardships and adversity with grace and fortitude. Mom was spiritual, feisty, and strong willed, humorous with a quick wit, compassionate and nurturing, talented and accomplished at whatever she turned her hand to. Mom enjoyed listening to music of all kinds, loved playing the organ and singing. Reading her large collection of books, being outdoors enjoying the beauty of nature. Playing in her garden, growing tomatoes and flowers, visiting and phone calls to family and friends. Throughout her life mom loved to travel, and a trip to Hawaii with two of her daughters was especially memorable and brought her joy. She enjoyed life! Her legacy lives on in her children with memories and love.
