Muriel J. Martinson of Lake Minnesuing died Saturday, May 7, 2011 in Essentia Health, Duluth.
She was born in Duluth to Edward and Clara Johnson. Muriel graduated from Denfeld High School.

She worked at Northwestern Bell as an operator and cashier before retiring in 1978 in order to care for Marty.
Muriel had a sense of style and beauty that was reflected in her home, appearance, life style, and the beautiful and whimsical needlework and crafts she created. She loved people, nature, and the furry and feathery creatures that were drawn to her gardens and yard. She enjoyed many years in her home because of the constant care and devotion of Ron Swanson, her loving companion.
Muriel was preceded in death by her husband, parents, brothers Clarence, Lloyd, Morgan and Anton Johnson, and other dear family and friends.
She is survived by her partner Ron; sisters-in-law Myrna Johnson of Cedar, MN, and Marvel Pederson of Superior; brother-in-law Gerald Martinson of Ashland; many nieces and nephews including Jane Pederson, Scot (Shannon) Johnson, and Debra Johnson all of Duluth, and Gary (Bev) Pederson, Foxboro; and precious poodle, Happy.
