Muriel Ann Motquin

March 2, 1930 — June 3, 2020

Muriel Ann Motquin, 90, Green Bay, went to her heavenly home on Wednesday, June 3, 2020, at a local care facility. Born March 2, 1930, in Green Bay, she is the daughter of the late Alexander and Hilda (Pahnke) Schoen. Muriel married Joseph L. Motquin on January 24, 1948, at First Evangelical Lutheran Church, Green Bay, and he preceded her in death on February 10, 1989. She was a long-time, active member of First Evangelical Lutheran Church where she was baptized and confirmed in her Christian faith. Muriel also served as Sunday School superintendent and as a teacher for 37 years, also serving on the Altar Guild and with the Lutheran Girl Pioneers. She enjoyed camping, playing cards and crocheting. Muriel worked for a time as a clerk at Pranges but truly appreciated being a stay-at-home mom and wife.
