Myrna married the love of her life, Bobby Jay, on December 21, 1957 and had nine beautiful children in which they made Port Edward, BC their home. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family and being with her husband fishing the Skeena River.
Mom enjoyed playing cards, cooking, and eating our traditional foods, she especially liked jarring sockeye salmon, listening to classic country and gospel music, watching game shows with her favorite being “Wheel of Fortune”, doing Word Search puzzles, scratching Bingo Multiplier lottery tickets, and on occasion attend the casino.
She will be fondly remembered for her energy, generosity, and loving kindness. Special thank you to the nurses at Prince Rupert Hospital and Dr. Belgardt for your care and kindness.
