Please accept our deepest sympathy.
We are sorry to learn of Myrna's passing, but we know she was more than ready to go home to her Lord and Saviour. She loved you all very much. We were very fortunate to have spent many visits with her over the past several years. I will miss her, but I know she is much happier now. My last visit with her in early Nov. I thought she was doing very well. We talked at length about many things but mostly her family and the good old days at Memorial. She seemed to love the home-made fudge that we took her. God Bless all of you. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Curt, Nona, and Family,
We are so sorry to see online that your Mom/Grandma has passed away. We hope your many memories of happy times spent together bring you comfort in the days ahead. Been a long time since I've talked with you...long time since Beef N Brew days, Nona. I have many great memories of Myrna from that time.
Love, Steph & Jim

I worked with Mryna at Handelman Tire Company over 40 years ago. She taught me what it meant to be a friend. She was indeed a character - the type of woman who gives women a good name! My memories of Mryna are precious.
