Devoted wife of Peter Giblin, mother to daughter Kerry and son-in-law Angelo Liakas of Ho-Ho-Kus, NJ, mother to son Christopher and daughter-in-law Meghan Giblin of Alexandria, VA.

Muriel was born in Rangoon, Burma, and over the course of her childhood also lived in England and Queens, NY. After marrying her husband of 45 years, Peter, they moved to NJ to raise their family. After short stints in Cliffside Park and Bergenfield, they settled in Ho-Ho-Kus and have lived there for 41 years. Muriel’s favorite pastimes included doing art projects with her grandchildren, using her Master Gardener skills in her gorgeous garden, traveling the world with her husband and family, quilting, cooking, baking, and spending time with family and friends. She also worked for years as a marketing executive for Money Magazine. She was extremely creative, magically made everything she touched more beautiful, and was always willing to lend a hand. All who knew her, loved her.
