It is with sadness that the family of Christel Elise Muhs, announce her passing in Medicine Hat on Saturday, September 14, 2013, at the age of 61 years. Christel was born September 2, 1952, in Ponoka, Alberta. She was raised in Ponoka where she received most of her education. Following her high school years, she briefly trained as a nurse before deciding to go down a different path in Medical Records, working as an administrator for 3M for a number of years. Christel had an ear for music and was involved on different levels including attending band camps, playing saxophone and as a member of many different bands through the years. She adored pets and provided a nice home for many dogs and cats and had a collection of many little cat trinkets. Christel was a wonderful person whose positive outlook on life brought joy and hope to those around her. Her personality made her well liked and the greatest accessory she wore was her warm smile that always brightened the day! Christel’s memory will be cherished by her son, Lancelot Pelletier and his son Nicholas of Okotoks; two sisters, Lydia Richard and Linda (Bernie) Steinmann as well as 10 nieces and nephews and their families.
