I loved my Aunt Myrna. I always had a good time visiting with her and loved how she would give my dad her brother Roy a hard time. Myrna was a special person, and the video tribute is beautiful. I will miss her and the kindness she always showed to me.

Love, Chris Ballinger, my wife Michelle, and my three boys Josh, Ben, and Evan just like Aunt Myrna

Memories, Where do I start… Strength is the first thing that comes to my mind. She had it and inspired it. I lost my father at a very early age and Aunt Myrna came to my rescue, she took me into her home and helped me get away from all the greif I was losted and needed time to heal. She also has always been a guiding light in my time of need when I needed to care for my MOM her sister Shirley Thank you I will miss you but will never forget all that you taught me. Be at peace now my Special Angel!!!

myrna was my dear friend and i will miss her.

she was always trying to help others no matter what the cost to herself.

i have seen her change the lives of others when no one else in this world would help them.

during our last conversation, she was not concerned about her situation, she was only concerned about her family.

myrna, you will always be in my heart.

Myrna was special. Her life was devoted to her family. I think her goal in life was to ensure the happiness and security of her boys, and she did that. May she rest in peace.

So Strong – I hoped you’d bring that strength forward again. But you choose not to so I left, Now I’m left with memories we’ve shared and your birth at home = WE WHERE THERE YOU KNOW? coming back from California, I was there. Your sickness at my home. I was there too. Now as you go forward I will finish some of the things I must before I follow. Your final peace is needed and I will always be here as I’ll need you and your strength to go on….The rest will carry on as you so wanted, together. Sisters love is with you always. Shirley

The thought that comes most to me, Aunt Myrna is your strength! If some one was down, you lifted the up, with your warm smile, most kind heart. I will always treasure our times together. If ever anyone needed you — you were there! May God hold you now — as you held so many in this short life. You were never one for big hugs! So look down from above I AM HUGGING YOU NOW, and I won’t let go till we meet again, your loving niece Anna.

Word can’t be found for the Special times we’ve had together. From our childhood fights over cleaning the bathroom, class reunions that felt like family reunions and OUR fight with meningitis in our teens. Aunt Myrna you were always there to keep the family going. Family was your greatest treasure. Thank you for being that SPECIAL PERSON to so many!!!! You’ll be missed-All our Love.
