Muriel Isom Rowland Obituary
Carmel – Muriel I. Rowland passed peacefully in her home with her family by her side. She and her husband, Ralph Rowland, were residents of Carmel for over 20 years. Muriel is survived by her daughter, Lindsey Coleman; her son, Jeff Coleman; and her brother, Bill Isom. Muriel was a beloved grandmother to Brook Paulsen, Erin Coleman and Kristina Coleman and great-grandmother to David Paulsen. She was preceded in death by her husband and her sister, Janice Gray.
Muriel was born to Walter and Nellie Isom in Modesto, California and spent her childhood in Crows Landing, California. A graduate of UC Berkeley, she taught school in Clovis, California. Muriel enjoyed a long and enriching life. An artist at heart, she enjoyed painting, gardening, and playing the piano. She found delight in nature, frequently spending summers at her family cabin near Sonora Pass, fishing and painting. Muriel was a member of St. Dunstan's Episcopal Church in Carmel Valley. Muriel and her spirit for life will be missed dearly.

"Almighty God, we entrust all who are dear to us to thy never-failing care and love, for this life and the life to come, knowing that thou art doing for them better things than we can desire or pray for; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."

Graveside services will be held this Friday, October 18 at 11:00 AM at Hills Ferry Cemetery in Newman, California. Memorial contributions are suggested to St. Dunstan's Episcopal Church, P.O. Box 101, Carmel Valley, CA 93924. Please visit www.thepaulmortuary.com to sign Muriel's guest book and leave messages for her family.
