MURIEL JOYCE INGLIS nee REDSTONE

Well known pioneer Muriel Inglis, passed away July 25, 2008. She was born in Broadview Sask., Dec. 17, 1920, the daughter of Tom and Emily Redstone. The family moved to the valley, settling in Kelowna in 1925. Ten years later Tom purchased a business and moved the family to Peachland. Here Muriel met her sweetheart, Chuck Inglis. They were married in 1940. Two children followed, Marilyn and Wayne. World War 2 was breaking and Chuck was off to join the troops, (Muriel fought her own battle of being left alone to raise two small children. She worked in the packing house during the day and at night wrote overseas letters by lamplight, to the man she loved.) When Chuck was discharged from the P.P.C.L.I, they bought Grandad Powells ranch in Peachland and started planting. (These were hard years, but a new beginning.) Muriel was still active with the Legion, teaching Sunday School and writing for the paper, Sherryl was born and soon after, Chuck and Muriel were getting caught up in the exciting next stage of their life, square dancing. Soon they were teaching up and down the valley and by 1965 Muriel had started her own business in Penticton. Chuck’s Western Wear. The Peachland orchard was sold and the family moved to Penticton. In 1974 they retired, and became snowbirds for the next 20 years. They had the time of their lives. With Chuck’s passing in 1996, Muriel, still with the same courage and tenacity, fought the devastating disease of dementia. She now joins her dearly beloved, in the next part of her journey. Lovingly remembered by your children, Marilyn, Wayne (Sharon), Sherryl (Bob), also Warren, Barry and Betty. Her Grandchildren Christopher (Nicole), Kevin, Scott, Bryan, David (Rhonda) Tawna (Neil), and Shirely Lee, Tom (Shannon), Ron (Gail), Kimberley (Rene), Hillery & (Justin).
