Muriel was born in Atlanta, Georgia and graduated from Henry Grady High School. She worked many years as an office supervisor for Southern Bell. She later managed a kitchen shop and worked part-time at Neiman-Marcus.
Ready for a change, she and her husband moved to Mooresville where she worked at Walmart, then opened and operated “Johnson Road “ a specialty kitchen shop and later worked at Lowe’s Hardware where she made new friends and became a customer favorite.
Muriel was predeceased by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Homer Robert Hannah and her brother, Homer Robert Hannah Jr. Survivors include her devoted husband of 27 years, George Sanford Alls of the home, her son Michael Benson Wilbanks (Holley) of Lilburn, GA; grandchildren Warren Michael Wilbanks and Kathryn Elizabeth Wilbanks, also of Lilburn, her brother Frank Thomas Hannah (Barbara) of Shelby, NC, sister Carolyn Hannah Mellon of Atlanta, GA, former sister-in-law Joyce Barton of Trion, GA, special friend and caregiver, Selena Carver and eight nieces and nephews.
Muriel had a solid work ethic which was always apparent in everything she did. Her memory for names, dates and details was amazing. She cherished her family, friends and valued the time she spent with them; she never knew a stranger. She enjoyed time at Lake Norman, long walks, gardening, cooking and their dogs, Rugs and Shelby.
