Muriel Ericksen

April 10, 1935 — August 11, 2022

With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Muriel Ericksen.  On August 11, 2022 at the age of 87, she was called home by her Lord and Savior Jesus ChristJesus Christ and her family were the most important things in her life. Muriel was surrounded by family and loved ones when she passed. She was preceded in death by her loving husband Rev. Alan Ericksen, her brother Edwin Jacob, and parents Morris & Emly Jacob.  Muriel is survived by her five daughters, Sue Hailey, Linda Ericksen, Karen Ericksen, Donna Weidner, and Ruth Ericksen, along with her grandchildren Audrey Mix and Amanda Mix.

Muriel was a devoted wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, and friend.  She served alongside her husband throughout his 50 plus years of ministry, spreading God's word in multiple parishes from the mid-west to the east coast, settling at Grace Lutheran Church in Bowie, MD in 1964.  She is known for her deep and unwavering faith, unconditional love, sense of humor, myriad of talents, and being a warrior for God throughout her life until her death from aortic stenosis and uterine serous carcinoma.  She was a loving, faithful, kind, generous, dedicated, humorous soul that will be greatly missed by ALL.

The viewing will be held on Sunday, August 21, 2022 from 1pm - 3 pm and the funeral service will be held on Monday, August 22, 2022 at 11:00am.  Both will be held at Grace Lutheran Church (2503 Belair Dr, Bowie MD).  The interment will take place at Lakemont Memorial Gardens (900 W Central Avenue, Davidsonville, MD, 21035).  A reception will follow at Grace Lutheran Church.
