So many wonderful memories of "Aunt Myrna". From my summers spent at the farm to her wonderful Christmas baking, Aunt Myrna was a treasured friend. My mother, (Jean McEachern) and Myrna were bonded friends for over 60 years. They loved to travel and especially loved to shop, exploring ladies clothing stores throughout Ontario. Remembering Myrna fondly and she will be missed. To Uncle Keith and family, my deepest condolences.

Dearest Uncle Keith, Gary, Brian and Grandchildren, It is with heartfelt sorrow that we express to you our deepest sympathy. God above all, knows and feels our heart aches, so we will continue to call upon Him and ask Him to be your comfort and consolation. Aunt Myrna was a beautiful, kind, encouraging and very loving wife, mom, grandmother, sister, aunt, friend. She was very proud of the generations that came after her. She had a sparkle in her eye and a lift in her voice when she spoke of these, her children. She will be missed much. Love Gerry and Carolyn

I was ever so sorry to hear of the passing of Myrna. I have many fond memories of her wonderful baking and seeing her out on her walks past our farm, on Oro line 3. Lots of memories of her working out in the dairy barn too. She was really a terrific lady. Keith, I am thinking of you and Gary and your family at this sad time.
