WATERFORD On March 5, 2019 Muriel Marchand went home to her true citizenship in heaven to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ of Nazareth. She was a woman of noble character, a woman of beautiful grace and soothing touch. She was the loveliest reflection of all the light and goodness in the world.
Born November 13, 1923 she was the beloved daughter of John J. Casey and Lillian Keeler Casey; cherished and adoring wife of the late George J. Marchand; a mother who loved beyond measure her children: Charlene Marchand of North Chatham, Denise Roque (Dr. Romeo Roque) of Longmeadow, MA, Christopher G. Marchand (Victoria) of Waterford and the late Charles Marchand; honored grandmother of Dr. Tara Roque of Bethesda, MD, Christopher Marchand and Jivon Reo of Waterford; proud great grandmother of Luke and Lily Hibey, Stella, Cal, Mac and Anthony Jr. Reo, and Lucia Marchand. Each of their names is engraved in the heart of Muriel.
Blessed with not only a large and loving family, over the course of decades, Muriel relished the company of countless friends - young and old - who enjoyed her rich humor and generous spirit.
A private burial and celebration of her wonderful life will be held at St. Agnes Cemetery, Menands. Those who wish to honor her may make contributions to Capital City Rescue Mission, 259 So. Pearl St., Albany, NY 12202 or St. Mary’s School, 12 6th St., Waterford, NY 12188.
Muriel's entire family is deeply grateful for the warm and tender care that she received at Schuyler Ridge. They also express their gratitude to the doctors and staff at Albany Medical Center and South Clinical Campus for their exceptional care and compassion at the end of her life. Surrounded by family, she passed into the hands of Jesus with dignity, respect, and love. All praises to the King of Calvary for the gift of righteousness and everlasting life!
