My condolences to the family. Myrna was a member of the VFW Auxiliary 4099. She first joined in Sept 1969 for a period of 4 years. She rejoined in Aug 1996 and remained a member since. When she entered the Extended Care, the Auxiliary kept her a current member each year. I enjoyed many great conversations with her when she would be shopping at JCP. Visits at Extended Care were often until COVID. May memories bring you comfort knowing she is in God's hands.

My condolences on the loss of your mother. George and Myrna were always part of my life as a child growing up across the street. I always appreciated them keeping an eye on my mother and extending a helping hand when she needed one. I will always have fond memories of them both.
