Muriel graduated from Pinkerton Academy in 1913 and from Plymouth Normal School (NH) in 1915. She taught school for 15 years in Derry, Lyme and Hanover, NH. She owned the Muriel Gift Shop in Lincoln, NH at the time of her death.

Muriel became a member of the Molly Reid Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) on Oct. 12, 1949 and was Past Regent (1953-1955) of the Chapter. She was also a member of Ransford Chapter, OES of Derry; First Congregational Church in East Derry, the Derry Arts and Crafts Association and the South Range Sewing Circle.

She is a direct descendant of Matthew Thornton, signer of the Declaration of Independence through his daughter, Mary, who married Silas Betton.

When she was but 14 years of age, she had the honor of unveiling a plaque honoring Matthew Thornton which was placed on a boulder in front of his home in Derry Village, New Hampshire.
