Muriel Wach 1922 - 2017

Obituary of Muriel Wach

Muriel Wach, died Friday, August 25th 2017 at the age of 94.  Muriel was born on September 23, 1922 to the late Bessie & Jerome “Jerry” Gorman in Brooklyn, NY.  Muriel is survived by her cherished children, Richard (Bonnie) and Michael; her adoring sister, June; and devoted grandchildren Gillian, Rorie (Adam Miller), Emilie and great-granddaughter, Ruby Rainn Miller. 

In her younger years, Muriel worked alongside Babe, in her father’s luncheonette, as a hostess.  Years later, she worked in a local Burger King – doing what she loved most – greeting people!  She was truly the quintessential Jewish mother, sister and grandmother – loving and nurturing her family unconditionally.   She never had a bad word to say about anyone.  In addition to her beloved husband, Julius “Babe” Wach, she is also predeceased by her daughter-in-law, Rhonda.
