Muriel Louise McEachern, 95, of Fergus ON passed away at home on June 3, 2019. Born and raised in Fort William ON, she was the daughter of Thomas and Daisy (Browden) Martin, sister of Colleen Taylor and granddaughter of her personal hero Thomas Browden. In 1944 she married Lynden Neil McEachern while he was home on leave from convoy duty in the North Atlantic and they enjoyed 39 years together venturing from Fort William to Sault Ste. Marie to Sudbury to Sept Iles QC and then Fergus until Lynden’s death in 1983.
Muriel was a fixture of her family, and lived her long life with joy, grace and adventure. She loved to travel, bake (just try to rival her lemon meringue pie!), follow politics and current events, appreciate the antics of birds, wildlife and pets and most of all to be surrounded by friends and family.
Muriel is survived by her children Thomas and wife Susan (Belanger) McEachern of Quispamsis NB and Bonnie McEachern of Fergus ON, grandchildren Kevin McEachern and Meagan McEachern Poirier, and her adored great grandchildren Drew, Kate, and Reid all of Quispamsis NB, as well as those she included and loved as family: Catt, Dustin and Julien, Mike and Javan, Andrea, her extended McEachern family, her Aboyne neighbours, “the girls” – you know who you are, and her four European “daughters” Tini Koepf, Alice Meyenkoth, Malin Ahlbeck and Anna Ostman.
Muriel’s positivity, tenacity (she called it stubbornness), strength and kindness will remain an inspiration to all those who met her, and are a reminder to look for the good, to be willing to learn, to laugh more and to find joy in the people you love. She always gave you the benefit of the doubt, made friends wherever she went, and exhibited unwavering, unconditional love.
Her life was long and full of love, and her light and wisdom will be missed and never forgotten.

When I was an exchange student at CWDHS back in 1992 I was blessed with an amazing host family. I stayed with Muriel and Bonnie who made me a part of the family. I have so many fond memories of Muriel. If I had to pick one it must be a baseball related memory since she really made me enjoy a sport I had barely even heard of before coming to Canada. I remember us going to the games at the Skydome and there being something of a special break sometimes. Suddenly everyone got up and started to stretch and exercise. She was always the first one to get up, beaming with enthusiasm, telling me this was an important part of the game. When you get to know baseball through someone with a love for the game like she had you can’t not get interested. I still keep up with the Blue Jays, thinking of her everytime I check their scores. Not only did she make me a Blue Jay fan for life, she made me a part of her family. For that I am truly grateful. I will remember her for the rest of my life.

What a lovely tribute to Muriel, and it's all so very true. Did you notice the glass in the picture? She did enjoy the occasional rye & ginger :-). As close friends, we will miss all the wonderful social times with Muriel, especially at Easter and Thanksgiving. Political discussions will never be the same again! We will think of you often, our special friend, and you were an amazing lady.

Dear childhood friend
I will never forget hoe dear you were to me for many of those teen years. And of how much kindness I received from your dear parents. Indelible memory shot of Mom in her blue housecoat with an egg lifter in her hand making breakfast following a sleepover or Daddy at the BBQ on the upstairs deck above Mill and Mine Supplies. How they loved their children and it showed. I wouldn’t probably learned of your Mom’s fomegoing except that Joyce Vokes and I spent the afternoon together and were remembering all of you. She asked me about Muriel and I was sad to confess we had not been in touch.
Know that my sympathy, prayers and love are directed your way. With enduring affection, Kathy

I got the pleasure of meeting Muriel and her daughter Bonnie back in April. Upon meeting both of them I felt so welcomed and at home. The two of them had such an amazing bond you could see instantly. I really enjoyed our morning visits together. Even at 95 years old Muriel would always have the nicest outfits picked out to wear and her makeup done by Bonnie, who had it down to a T. She had such an amazing personality she was funny, sweet, sassy, smart, determined and caring. During our time together she used to love to watch the birds, especially the Orioles, and wildlife. Together we would wait for the Chuck's (groundhogs) to come, that was one of my favorite things to do with her. They would come so close sometimes and I would photograph them and show her. She loved to talk about her family and friends you could see how much they meant to her. She also really loved Gracie the cat, Gracie was her buddy and protector. I am really going to miss Muriel.
