Muriel Watty

March 3, 1957 — October 2, 2023


Muriel Watty, born on March 3rd, 1957, in Geraldton, Ontario, passed away peacefully at Hospice Simcoe, Barrie on Monday, October 2, 2023, at the age of 66.

Known for her fun-loving spirit and adventurous nature, as a French Immersion supply teacher Muriel had an infectious energy that brightened every classroom she entered. With a heart full of compassion and an unwavering commitment to her students, she created a warm and inclusive learning environment where everyone felt valued and supported.

Outside of the classroom, Muriel found much enjoyment in her life. She had a deep love for her family, cherished her time spent at the camp in the summer with family and friends and relaxing in Florida during the winter months. Whether it was discovering new cultures while following Glen’s career in aviation or simply enjoying the beauty of nature, Muriel's adventurous spirit was an inspiration to all who knew her.

Muriel's greatest joy in life came from being a loving wife and mother. She shared countless precious moments with her family, cherishing each one as a gift. Her devotion and unwavering support were the pillars that held her loved ones together during both moments of celebration and times of hardship.

On October 2nd, 2023, surrounded by the love of her family and friends, Muriel passed away peacefully at Hospice Simcoe in Barrie, Ontario after bravely fighting her battle with COPD. Though saddened by the loss of such an extraordinary individual, we find solace in knowing that Muriel's memory will live on through the countless lives she has touched.
