Muriel Hope Kardell left her life on this earth on August 17, 2017 in Laurel. She was born October 16, 1930, on the family farm north of Funk, the fourth of five children born to Ephraim and Clara (Nelson) Anderson. She attended rural school District #11 in Phelps County, graduated from Axtell High School in 1948 and attended Northwestern Bible College in Minneapolis, MN. At an early age, Muriel chose to follow Christ; this decision was reflected throughout her life. She worked as a telephone operator in Holdrege and Minneapolis, MN. Muriel married Kenneth Kardell September 5, 1953, at Trinity Evangelical Free Church in Holdrege and to this union four sons were born: Daniel, Dudley, Derwin, and David. The couple farmed for many years near Laurel before moving to a farm north of Dixon. Raising four energetic boys provided many memories through the years. Her every thought and prayer was for her family and friends. The couple moved into Laurel in 2015. Muriel was an active member of the Concord Evangelical Free Church where she was involved in Sunday school, Women's Ministry, White Cross, choir, and in various other ways. She enjoyed music, Bible study, baking, sewing, gardening, quilting, and traveling. She was also a former member of the Concord-Dixon Cemetery Association.
