Muriel Theresa (MacKinnon) Bedecki
We are truly sad to announce the sudden passing of our dear sister, Muriel ‘Babs’ Bedecki on Friday, August 31, 2018 at the age of 68. Born in Glace Bay, she was the daughter of Neil and Sarah Jane (O’Handley) MacKinnon.
She was loved and will be missed by her brothers, sisters, brothers and sisters-in-law, nephews, nieces, cousins, friends especially her special friend, Trudy Smith and her family in Edmonton, AB. She will also be missed by her co-workers and friends at Tim Hortons along with the staff and friends from Dynasty Cabs and the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 12.
In her earlier years, Muriel worked as a graphic printer in Edmonton and Halifax. Locally, she worked at Jasper’s Restaurant and most recently at Tim Horton’s on George Street. She always had a smile for everyone and enjoyed a good laugh.
Muriel is survived by her brothers, Neil (Val), Basil (Claudia) and Chuck (Peggy); sisters, Mary Madore, Kathy (Bob) Bradbury and Sandra (Mike) McDonough. She is also survived by her aunt, Kaye O’Handley, and many nieces and nephews who cherished her. Happy trails to you Aunt Babs!
