Muriel Williams was more than a political critic

Recent writing about Muriel emphasizes her “political” commentary. There is so much more to be said about Muriel. She didn’t just comment on how the City should be run, she was an active participant! In her 70s and 80s she was still actively involved in the Poulsbo Public Library Board and on behalf of the Poulsbo Historical Society, a valuable service, and example to citizens of all ages.
“The Spirit of Poulsbo” history book is a timely and invaluable gift of Muriel’s legacy. It was remarkable at her age that she could have, much less would have been willing and able to dedicate months of effort to help produce this amazing volume. I also want to say that Muriel was much more than a critic; she took time to send personal notes of both chastisement and support, but also encouragement in times of personal bereavement. Few of us take the time to get personal these days.
Muriel was a good role model for our public and personal lives.
