Southbury — Muriel Ann Abrams, of Southbury, wife of Sidney Abrams, died peacefully on June 30, 2018. Muriel was born on May 1, 1928 in Brooklyn, NY and was the daughter of the late Alexander and Bessie (Bergstein) Albert.

To this day the store, now known as Encore Billiards & Gameroom has remained a family business in Milford.
In later years she and her husband moved to Heritage Village in Southbury. She was an avid painter and had many circles of friends. She loved to travel, especially to Las Vegas where the two frequented more times than we can count. She was fun, she loved people and everyone who knew her loved her back.
