Dates of existence



Suzanne Muir was born in Glascow, Scotland on June 26, 1891. She was the eldest daughter and the second of five children of Matthew McLeod Muir and Sarah Muir (nee Frayer). Suzanne and her widowed mother emigrated to Canada in 1921 or 1922. A sister Emma Kathryn emigrated at a later date. Sarah Muir died in Winnipeg in January 1930.

Suzanne and her sister Kathryn sold the family home on Lindsay St. in 1932 and moved into Fairmont Apartments at 52 Edmonton. The sisters both worked as legal secretaries. Suzanne and Kathryn became active in the Spiritualist Church following the death of their mother. In 1937 they met the Reverend William Robertson Wood (1874-1947), a United Church minister. For ten years Reverend Wood and his wife Margaret Matilda Wood sat weekly at the Muir sisters' apartment in a rescue circle. The purpose of a rescue circle was to release earth bound spirits to leave the mortal realm. Suzanne was a bi-monthly lecturer at the Winnipeg Spiritualist Church/ Winnipeg Psychic Society from 1962-1990. In 1997, Suzanne Muir died at the age of 105.
