Muriel Holup

1918 – 2016

Muriel Doris Holup, affectionally known as Bubby, passed away peacefully on Friday, August 19, 2016 at Cumberland Lodge at 98 ½ years of age. She is survived by her sister Claire, daughter Gail, son Ric, six grandchildren, seventeen great grandchildren and one great, great grandchild.

Muriel was born in Vancouver and moved to the Island in 1973. She was instrumental in starting the St. Joseph’s hospital Thrift Shop and very involved in Canadian Daughters. She traveled to many parts of the world as a senior, was a great five pin bowler, and loved walking her dogs on the beach in her spare time. She had a wicked sense of humor and drove like a race car driver, not letting anyone beat her at a stop light. She was loved very much and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
