Obituary for Muriel Margaret Popp
Muriel Margaret (Pockett) Popp, second child of Charles and Margaret Pockett was born at Springside near Yorkton, Sask on January 30, 1930. At the age of two Muriel, her parents and her older brother trekked to a homestead north of Porcupine Plain, Sask; her two other brothers and her sister where born there.
After attending Teachers College in Saskatoon, Muriel began her career in Bjorkdale Rural School. There she met the love of her life, John Popp. Together they had a daughter, Sandra Fae (Popp) Dickson and chose a daughter, Beverly Ann (Brown) Hale; two sons-in-law, Don Dickson and Marvin Hale, four grandchildren, Jesse and Joshua Dickson and Jodie and Montie Hale, along with their spouses and four great grandchildren completed Muriel and John’s family.
After thirty years of teaching, Muriel retired and began a busy and active time of her life. She aided John in the auction business and belonged to several organizations…Lions Club, where she served at various levels including District Governor, the retired Teachers Association, the Tisdale and Saskatchewan Writers Guilds, and St. Paul’s United Church.
After John passed away in 2007, Muriel used her flare with words and her love of writing to fill her hours. She wrote several books about her life and the lives of those closest to her and a children’s book dedicated to her great granddaughter.
Muriel lived by the motto, “One can be happy anywhere if she but wants to be.” And happily she lived in Bjorkdale, the Madison condo and Caleb Village in Tisdale and at the Heartland in Okotoks. She slipped away peacefully in her sleep with her daughter, Sandra, by her side, on January 2, 2018 at the age of 87.
