Muriel was born on March 17, 1932, at home in New Bremen, NY, a daughter of the late Harold E. and Helen Mezaros Jackson and attended Beaver Falls High School.  On June 3, 1950, she married Robert A. Lee at St. Peter’s Rectory, Lowville with Father Cotter officiating.  Muriel stayed home with her children and was a homemaker. 

She was a communicant of St. Stephen’s Catholic Church, Croghan.

 

Mother enjoyed knitting, crocheting, circle words books and providing for family, friends, and everyone who entered her home.  Mother was noted for her carmel corn, wax on snow, Christmas cookies, “dirty rolls”, clam chowder, penuche fudge, molasses cookies, and her amazing mashed potatoes.  Mother would make a favorite treat for everyone’s birthday.  Everyone was family to Mother, and she loved everyone unconditionally.  Although Mother endured many tragedies in her life, she persevered with her strength and faith.  This made her more loving and accepting without judgment.
