Muriel C. Brownell

1923 - 2013 CAMBRIDGE, N.Y. Muriel C. Brownell, 89, of 2 Cambridge Woods Lane, passed away from this life on Friday, Aug. 30, 2013 after a brief illness, at the Center for Nursing & Rehabilitation, Hoosick Falls, surrounded by her family. It was her firm belief that she would be raised to glory at Christ's Second Coming. She was born Sept. 19, 1923 in Lawrence, Mass., the youngest daughter of the late Rev. Arthur and Elizabeth (Frantz) Sweet. On March 31, 1945, she married Gordon E. Brownell, who predeceased her in January, 1984. Muriel worked alongside Gordon on the family farm in Groveside, where together they raised four daughters. After Gordon's death, Muriel moved to Clarkesville, Ga., where she made many friends. Muriel's deep faith in God and devotion to family was evident in her interactions with others. Muriel's many interests included art and crafts, ceramics, reading, doll collecting, and coordinating get-togethers for friends and family. Muriel had a love for travel and was thankful for her trips and experiences. She is survived by her four daughters and sons-in-laws, Patricia and Philip Peeler of East Haddem, Conn., Nancy Hallford of Port Saint Lucie, Fla., Susan and Raymond Morin of Groveside, N.Y., and Beth and Charlie Leeseman of Manchester Center, Vt. Muriel was proud to tell others of her nine grandchildren, Michelle Patch, Stacey Waddle (Michael), Matthew Morin (Lin), Lesley Perrone (John), Gregory Morin (Shannon), Jennifer Reidy (Sean), Kevin Bushey (Emily), Kate Bushey and Adam Bushey (Chelsey), and nine great-great grandchildren David, Logan Colton, Michael, Sadie, Hannah, Kylianne, Keirra, and Chasity, also many nieces, nephews and dear friends. Muriel was preceded in death by her siblings, Esther Pennock, Louis Sweet, Arthur "Bud" Sweet Jr., and Myrtle Eastman. FUNERAL NOTICE: A graveside service at the West Hoosick Cemetery will be scheduled at the convenience of the family. Contributions in Muriel's memory may be made to the West Hoosick Fire Department, Ebenezer United Methodist Church, Hollywood, GA, or an organization of your choice. Arrangements are under the direction of the MAHAR FUNERAL HOME, 43 Main Street, Hoosick Falls, N.Y.
