Muriel De Namur

De Namur Muriel _Associ _opt CROPMuriel’s family includes her son, Tom, who resides in Algoma, a daughter, Marcie, in Barrington, Ill., and two grandchildren.

Muriel is among the first Associates who entered in 1984. She and her mother frequently prayed at the Chapel in Robinsonville (now the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help). During the visits, Muriel struck up a friendship with Sister Ambrose who often was busy cleaning vigil lights in the Shrine Crypt. Both the peaceful prayer times and friendship led to Muriel’s interest in the Associate Relationship.
