Here is a possible death record for Muriel:

Muriel Loiselle: Social Security Death Index (SSDI) Death Record
Name:       Muriel Loiselle

Last known residence:
       City:        Tucson; Rincon
       County: Pima
       State:        Arizona

Her obituary reads:

"LOISELLE - The remains of Muriel Loiselle, former Butte resident who passes away in Tucson Sunday, are being forwarded to the Duggan Merrill Dolan (Montana) St. Chapel...Interment .. in VFW Auxiliary Plot in Mountain View Cemetery." ~The Montana Standard, Butte - Wed, 7 May 1975

Here is another:

"LOISELLE, Muriel M., 59, died May 4, 1975. Mother of Phyllis Gillette of Tucson and Robera [sic] Thielen of Montana; sister of Edward Gendel and Betty Lou LaForest; five grandchildren and two great grand-children also survive... Mrs. Loiselle was a member of Degree of Pocahontas and Imperial Order of Redmen, in Butte, Montana.."~Tuscon Daily Citizen - 6 May 1975, Tucson, AZ

Another article chronicles a divorce proceeding that must not have been finalized:

"Muriel Loiselle filed suit for divorce from James Loiselle, charging extreme cruelty. The couple married in Butte on June 29, 1935, and are the parents of two minor children, whose custody the plaintiff seeks. She asks $20 per week support and maintenance, plus $75 attorney fees." ~Montana Standard, Butte - 24 Jan 1943

In later newspaper clippings, Muriel keeps using the last name Loiselle, and remains at the same home address (2538 Kossuth), and directory listings have her living still with James.

Hope this helps. Annie
