March 19, 1938 – March 5, 2021

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dear mother Myrna on Friday, March 5, 2021, at St. Boniface Hospital at the age of 82 years.
She was predeceased by her parents, Myrtle and Clifton McIntyre, brother Jim, brother and sister-in-law Gilbert and Sally, and brother-in-law Edward Jenner.
She will be lovingly remembered by her children, Robert Dyck, Steve (Lori) Dyck and Elaine (Shawn) Marten; grandchildren, Elizabeth (Tyler) Cronin and Amanda (Char) Hebert; sister Barbara Jenner, and many nieces and nephews.
Myrna grew up in Sidney and then Brandon, Manitoba. After graduating high school she began working at MTS with a later transfer to Winnipeg where she remained for the rest of her life. She met Bernie Dyck and married in 1961 (parted ways in 1977) and had three children over the next four years. The family settled in Transcona where Myrna taught piano lessons from home, taught CGIT, and was treasurer of the neighbourhood Rummoli Club. When her children were all in school, she went back to school to earn a RIA degree. She rejoined the workforce in 1975 and over the next 15 years worked for Northern Sales Limited and then Thorne Riddell which became KPMG Peat Marwick Thorne. One of her proudest accomplishments was earning the trust of the owners of Northern Sales who asked her to usher the company into the computer age.
In her free time Myrna enjoyed reading, knitting, Sudoku puzzles and visiting with family.
Myrna will be cremated and at a later time a small family gathering will be held to inter her ashes back in Sidney, MB as were her wishes.
The family would like to extend a sincere thank you to the staff at St. Boniface Hospital (ward 7A West) for their care and compassion during Myrna's last days.
