Muriel Ann (Boutin) Winslow, age 78, of Paso Robles, Calif., died at 2:53 a.m. on Monday, June 17, 2019, at Twin Cities Community Hospital, of a sudden illness, surrounded by her loving family.
Muriel was born in Fall River, Mass., on Jan. 6, 1941, to parents Rose and Albert Boutin, and has two older brothers, Normand and Roland Boutin. At age 18, Muriel relocated with her family to California. Soon thereafter, Muriel married the love of her life, Winton Dwight Winslow. They made their home in Reseda, Calif. In 1973 they moved to Valencia, Calif., where they lived for most of their lives. Muriel and Winton raised four happy, successful children with constant, unwavering love. Upon retiring, Muriel and Winton relocated to Paso Robles, Calif. to be near their daughters and grandchildren. They have enjoyed living in Paso Robles for the last 14 years, happily sharing in the daily lives of their family in San Luis Obispo County.
Muriel attended Catholic schools her whole childhood and loved Jesus, God the Father, and the Holy Spirit. She was devoted to her church and sang in church choirs for almost 40 years. Muriel attended weekly bible study which brought her true joy. She was known for her sense of humor and contagious laugh. Muriel was unassuming, humble, kind, generous, smart and beautiful; a charismatic woman that drew people to her. Her family absolutely adored her. She was a joyful spirit, an inspiration and friend to all. Above all, Muriel loved her family.
Upon retiring she loved spending time with her daughters (especially Girls Night Out). She rejoiced in time with her grandchildren, enjoying fine food and wine, reading, animals, and every precious moment spent with her beloved husband, Winton. Muriel and Winton were soulmates, with a deep unconditional love. She will be deeply missed.
