April 25, 1926 - June 17, 2022

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our dear Mother, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother.
Mom will be greatly missed by her children, Craig (Linda), Janis Bigourdin (Randy), and Karen, her grandchildren, Kyle (Julianne), Laura (Ryan), Terence, Taylor and great-grandchildren, Alice and Quinn.
Family meant the world to Mom. She was extremely proud of her grandchildren and each one was special to her. She was thrilled to have lived long enough to see her great-grandchildren and spend time with them.
Mom lived life with the most positive attitude. She awoke each day with a smile on her face and couldn't wait to start the day and whatever new adventure it might bring. She found beauty in everything around her and embraced it fully.

She will remain in our hearts forever -
Love you More!

Thinking if you dear friend, Jan. God bless and much love to you all, as you walk through these times. Your mother (and father) were very special to me. xo - Posted by: Marilyn Erhart (Family friend) on: Jul 01, 2022

  • Myra was a dear quilting friend to me. Always helpful, offering invitations for tea, taking me out for lunch on my birthday. I’ll remember her birthday as we celebrated it over breakfast at my house. During the last three years, we often visited on the “landline “ phone. My deepest sympathy to Myra’s family.

  • Janice, Craig, and families. We are saddened by the news of your mom’s passing. We were so fortunate to have grown up in a neighbourhood that supported each other through good times and sad. Losing someone of your mom’s and my mom’s generation always brings me feelings of sadness and yet such gratitude. They were the very fabric of the community in which we grew up, teaching us to respect everyone, work hard, laugh and smile always. And boy did your mom have a beautiful smile! I remember sewing circles, dainty sandwiches, recipe exchanges, your mum’s caring gentle nature, especially when my dad died very suddenly and left my mother a young widow. We moved away in the 70’s but when my mum was 100 we went for a drive in the old neighbourhood and she mentioned how grateful she was to have lived with such wonderful “neighbours“ She was so happy to hear that Myra was still in her home. (I knew this because my neighbour and good friend belonged to the same quilting group) This really meant a lot to my mom who then said “I wish I could have stayed, us ladies knew how to have a good time!” Than you Myrna for being part of my life growing up, and leaving me with life lessons that I have hopefully passed on to our children. You will be remembered. Peace be with you and your family, Jan Hasiuk (Hominick, 845 Airlies) - Posted by: Janice Hasiuk (Old Neighbour ) on: Jun 29, 2022

  • Mrs. Westman, to me when I was very young, was a wonderful person. I recognized that when I was 5 years old. I had the honor of being their first babysitter when we all lived on Kildarroch. I also walked Craig to school when he was in kindergarten. I had the pleasure of knowing how she was doing whenever I bought my gardening plants from Riverside. I was so sad to learn of her passing the other day. However, I am so happy that she was still able to live in her house to the end. That is the dream of all of our parents. May she rest in peace. I wish to pass my condolences on to Craig, Janis and Karen and their families. She will live in our hearts forever. - Posted by: Linda Benson (Friend) on: Jun 27, 2022

  • Our family met Myra through our late mother, Anna Zarrillo. Myra meant a lot to mom, and through that friendship we got to know her as well. She was a treasure, and we are so grateful to her for that friendship. On June 7th of this year, my sister Josie and I had lunch and a lovely visit with Myra. We were so happy to see how well she was doing and grateful to have had that time together. Please accept our heartfelt condolences on her passing. May her memories sustain you in the coming days. Godspeed Myra. Zarrillo family. - Posted by: Maria Dunsmore (Zarrillo) (Family friend) on: Jun 27, 2022
