Muriel Morris was the fourth child and second daughter of Max and Irene Morris to live to adulthood. 

Muriel was born on 13 May 1926 in New York. Her earliest years were spent in the Bronx. Sometime between 2 July 1928 (when her brother Edwin was born in New York City) and 1 April 1930 (when the 1930 U.S. Census recorded the family in Red Bank), the family moved to Red Bank, New Jersey.[1]

Muriel married Joseph Sofer (30 May 1919 - 3 February 2000). They had no children.

Muriel died 21 April 1962 in Red Bank. [2]
