WEARE, NH: Muriel Jones, born on April 20, 1927 to Edward Bunn and Florence Culm in Birmingham, England, passed away on July 7, 2017 in Concord, NH.
She was predeceased by her husband, Donald, in 2009, after 63 years of marriage. Their journey together spanned three countries: England, Canada and the United States. They finally settled in Weare, NH in 1986, close to their two daughters.
