Muriel Toste - Cumberland

Muriel Toste, 86, of 3 Valley Stream Drive, Cumberland, entered the gates of heaven on April 10, 2013, at the Woonsocket Health Center.

She was the beloved wife of the late George A. Toste. Born on Sept. 1, 1926, in South Attleboro, Mass., she was the daughter of the late William Benson and Elsie (Pickering) Benson Crompton.

She is survived by her son David and his wife Elizabeth; granddaughter, Erin Toste; and granddaughter, Dr. Beth Harrison and her husband Michael, PhD. Muriel is also survived by her sister, Audrey Gardner, and several nieces and nephews.

Earlier in her life she loved to walk and to play golf. She was an avid Patriots fan who adored their quarterbacks–Steve Grogan, Drew Bledsoe and Tom Brady.

Her most enjoyable moments in life were the times babysitting her granddaughters, Beth and Erin and making them their favorite dishes–tuna melts and “blueberry mess,” and watching their softball games. “Nana” will be greatly missed.

Committal prayers will be offered at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 20, 2013, at the R.I. Veterans Cemetery, 301 South County Trail, Exeter, R.I. Calling hours and flowers are respectfully omitted. Donations in her name to the Alzheimers Association of R.I. 245 Waterman Street, Providence, R.I. 02906 appreciated.
