Mark, my condolences to you as you grieve the loss of your dear Mother. May you find comfort from Psalm 34:18 “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds”.

From: Deborah Luanne Liness
Relation: Niece

So many fond memories of Aunt Myrtle. She was always very welcoming, whether we were just coming through town or staying the night. I loved sharing time with her at their homes in Nelson and Cranbrook. I remember laughing so much with her sons while playfully being swatted with wet tea towels. The home gardens were beautiful. I remember baking Uncle Dave cookies and how Myrtle would smile. Whether we were attending family reunions, birthday Celebrations, sharing meals and stories or making puzzles or playing games sheways made times special. Much loved by our family.
Our deepest sympathies to Mark (Zara), Glen, Anne, Wendy, Patti and Bobby and all family grieving in this difficult time. Hugs, strength and love to all.

Myrt was truly one of a kind and I was so very blessed to have known her and spent time with her. She was the Gramma I never had the pleasure to know. I will never forget the cards games, dominoes and especially the wonderful clam chowder. Many memories were created and will be forever cherished. I was truly blessed to have known you ❤️💐

My condolences to family and friends ❤️😘
