Muriel Hampton passed away on January 18, 2023. Muriel will be missed by her daughter Michele (Steve Johnston), grandchildren Chloe and Luke, brothers Maurice and Norbert Lanteigne and sister Jacqueline Lanteigne and numerous other cousins and friends.
She was predeceased by her husband Skip, parents Rita and Julien Lanteigne, brother Rejean Lanteigne and sister Lucie Lanteigne as well as other relatives and friends.
Muriel was born in Bathurst, NB and grew up on the sea in Caraquet, NB. She finished nursing school in NB in 1965 and decided to journey west with her friend for new adventures and to nurse at the Drumheller Hospital.
Muriel nursed for many years at the Drumheller Hospital, Drumheller Home Care, and the Drumheller Penitentiary. She made many lifelong friends in her years in health care. Muriel met Skip and they were married on March 17, 1967. They lived just north of Rowley where they raised their daughter Michele. Muriel and Skip were involved in many community activities. She also farmed with Skip and learned to drive and back up farm vehicles and machinery.
Muriel loved to have projects and decorate. She was proud to say she completed 17 projects around her house in 2022. Muriel loved her family and loved spending time with her grandchildren. She also loved spending time with both old friends and new friends. Muriel was always a proud Acadian.
Special thanks to Muriel’s health care providers and friends that helped her out when she needed a hand.
