  1. Very grateful to have had Muriel in my life growing up, I have really good memories of Boxing Day lunches over at her house – she always put on such an amazing spread and bought presents for my brothers and I. She was a wonderful honorary aunt and will be missed

  2. Memories stretching back 60 years of a very, very special Sunday School teacher who then became a good friend and an honorary and very much loved aunt to our children. She always took such an interest in their lives and we were truly blessed to have her in ours. Visits at Christmas to her home were highlights of our children’s lives and they held her exceedingly well catered lunches in great esteem. Never were children’s appetites catered for as well as at the dining table in her Mackey Street home. Her knitting of jumpers for them when young … she wielded a talented pair of needles and turned out some incredible jumpers which we treasured. She made a point of sourcing unique gifts for them … and they were always just the thing to keep young minds occupied. I still have the Sunday School prize books from my childhood … and her gift for selecting special stories make them amongst my most special items from my youth. Thank you Muriel … for all that you blessed us with and for being such a special part of my life. We will miss you and always love your influence on our lives and your kindnesses to us. Susan and Peter, Oliver, Gareth, Elliott and Emily xxxx

  3. Aunty Muriel will be greatly missed.
    During his early years at Preston Salvos, she was like a grandmother to Shaun, and he has lots of very fond memories. I met her as a young adult and she attended our wedding in 1993. She was there as I had my 2 kids and loved us all very much.
    As life has a way of doing, over the past few years we had lost contact with her, but she was never far from our thoughts. A couple of weeks ago she was on our minds and we started to try and find her as she was no longer at her address in Lalor. Our only wish is that we had found her sooner, so that she would know that we still loved and cared for her.
    Our greatest sympathies are with all the family at this time and we look forward to the day that we get to see her again in the Lord’s house.
    Kindest regards,
    Shaun & Sharon Yates.

  4. A long and fulfilling life of service to others. Her love and care for young people will be long remembered. I enjoyed our chats on a Sunday. Privileged to ‘attend’ the lovely on-line service reflecting on her interesting and rewarding life. God Bless the memory of Muriel Cooper. May the comforting arms of God surround the family during this sad time of loss.

  5. Thanks for the opportunity to share in this service, I would have been terribly upset not to be able to share … I am one of her Sunday school members from Reservoir who she had a profound impact on … I became an officer in The Salvation Army largely through her spiritual influence, no-one has impacted me more in the spiritual sense as she did … she may have been small in stature but she was a spiritual giant in my eyes … whilst I’m saddened by her passing I am rejoicing in the fact she has received her eternal reward, & praise God for her life of selfless service,
    & the impact she had on so many young lives during their formative years, mine included …

  6. A fitting tribute to a wonderful lady. Remembered from the Lalor Sunday school way back in the late 1960s. Condolences to the family, with much love from The Jacobs Family.

  7. Very meaningful tributes, beautifully expressed. Thank God for Muriel Cooper. God bless and comfort her loved ones and her friends!

  8. Rest In Peace, Auntie Muriel.
    You were a lovely lady who will be sadly missed.
    Thank you for all the family history and stories you shared with me the past couple of years.
    I will miss visiting and our chats

  9. I am eternally grateful for the example of this amazing lady, particularly at Reservoir. I would not have found the path of life without her.

  10. Quite an innings. We’ll always remember the visits around the festive season and the thoughtful gifts from (honourary) Auntie Muriel.
    Rest easy.

  11. I knew Mrs Cooper from my Sunday school days at Reservoir Salvation Army, I have very fond memories of her. Resting with her lord now xx

  12. To all of the family my thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    She was like a grandmother to me and I am disappointed I couldn’t attend. She will be deeply missed

  13. A beautiful kind gentle lady well remembered.
    I am now 60 and Muriel taught me at Sunday school and took junior soldiers at the reservoir corp.

    May she rest in peace:

    Regards Linda Stewart

  14. Fond memories of our Young Peoples Sargent Major Mrs Muriel Cooper. She loved all her ‘kids’ at Reservoir Corps of the Salvation Army and made our Sundays interesting and informative in the 60’s and 70’s. We had a lively Sunday School, Junior Soldiers, Sunday School Anniversaries and the memorable Sunday School picnics. She was very loved by all the lives she touched. Ian and Julie Findley
