CAILLAU, Muriel E.-- entered into rest July 15, 2002 in San Jose, CA at the age of 70. Survived by her beloved husband of 48 years; two sons and a daughter; four grandchildren; three sisters; and many nieces and nephews.

Muriel born and raised in San Jose, California. She was a graduate of San Jose State University, a talented "Jill of All Trades, and one who loved and enjoyed her extensive family. Deeply involved in genealogy for many years and a member of DAR, Muriel was a prolific contributor to various genealogy forums and well-respected for her contributions and willingness to share her knowledge and "how to" tips with others. Traveling to libraries, resource centers, homesteads and cemeteries across the county, Muriel diligently documented and photographed her findings to share in a beautiful family tree she published online, long before "fancy programs did all the work".

Proceeded in death by her son, Leland John (1959-1978); parents Charles Abbott and Edna Lavina; sister Hilda Aimee (1920-1999); brothers Jack Ernest (1922-1989), Dale Willard (1924-2002), Howard Eldon (1927-1987) and Glenn Herbert (1928-1987); nephew Clayton Clark Carney (1957-1966); and niece Linda Victoria Ransom (1967-1999).
