Beloved of her family and friends, Muriel, 26, left us too soon on June 25, 2021. She was born on February 15, 1995 to Daniel and Becky Scott of Lansing. She was predeceased by father Daniel Lee Scott. She is survived by her mother, Becky; sisters, Jane Linley, Carolyn Harper, and Jacqueline Scott; and many loving relatives.
A graduate of Eastern High School, Muriel participated in the Disability Network Capital Area and made many friends there. She was passionate about justice and loved to read biographies. She was a talented painter and knitter, and along with her paintings and items she decorated, she often made hats and scarves for friends and family. She loved music, especially Josh Turner. She loved being organized and was always willing to help with household projects and chores. She loved animals, especially sea creatures, and felt a special affinity for turtles and frogs.
Innocent of the world, but greatly aware of her own feelings and motivations, Muriel leaves us with a greater appreciation of the value of simplicity, heartfelt communication, and the ties that bind. She was authentic, never dissembled and was always eager to understand more of the world around her. She delighted in opportunities to give to others and continually grew in self-confidence, understanding, and maturity. She will be greatly missed.
There will be a celebration of life on Sunday, July 25, 2021, from 2 to 4:30 p.m. at the Eagle’s Landing Pavilion at Potter Park Zoo, near the playground, with inspirational readings at 2:30 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Disability Network Capital Area, 901 E. Mt Hope, Lansing, MI 48910. Arrangements are by the Estes-Leadley Greater Lansing Chapel.
