She loved knitting, especially large dolls, doilies, Christmas stockings, and baby blankets.

Muriel was preceded in death by her parents, her brothers, and her sister.

Survivors include her husband of 66 years, Bob Kimbley; daughters, Debra Kimbley, Cindy Harris, Barbara Phelps, and Jeanette (Sam) Calloway; and 12 grandchildren, 26 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-granddaughter.
