The family will receive friends from 12 pm until a service at 2pm on Sunday, November 3, 2019 at Advent Funeral Home in Falls Church, Virginia.

      Dear Wendy and Mark. I am so sad to hear of your mom’s passing. Though we were cousins and very close in growing up, distance put a glitch in our seeing each other over the years. Also I will never forget how she and your dad were so great to my mom and dad when he was undergoing cancer treatments in Washington. God bless you and your family.

    Wendy and Mark and the Muir family, it was a pleasure being at Mrs Muir’s to help her each day. She enjoyed being home and me reading all the newspapers to her so she was up to date on what was happening in the area. She loved all the holidays and most especially Christmas. I would decorate her 9 ft tree each year and she loved it. Didn’t want it taken down, so I brought a smaller tree and would decorate it for each holiday. She will surley be missed.
