MYRTLE RHODA FARNEL (nee HIRD) It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Myrtle Farnel on Wednesday, November 10, 1999. Myrtle was predeceased by her husband, Melville, in 1983 and her son Ken in 1992. She is survived by her daughter Cheryl and husband Keith; grandchildren Kim (Joe), Sheila (Richard), Kendra, Vicki (Nathan), Kent (Shelley) and David; great grandchildren Christine, Jessica, Jesse, Tyler and Zachary; sister Ileen, and brother Duncan. Born in Lavenham, Manitoba on September 12, 1912, Myrtle spent her childhood on the family farm until her marriage in 1930 to Melville. They raised their family on Sherbrook Street and resided there until Melvilles death. She then moved to Arms of the Cross where she was re-acquainted with old friends and made many new ones. Myrtle enjoyed family get-togethers and was especially fond of spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Nothing was better than a sleepover at Grandmas or a visit with dainties and milk. Myrtle always had an open door to friends and strangers alike. Anyone needing help, or someone to talk to could find themselves having coffee at the kitchen table, or on the front step, and lunch and dainties would never be far behind. Myrtle will be forever missed by her family and many friends. Prayer service will be held on Friday, November 12, at 7:00 p.m. at Neil Bardal Inc., 984 Portage Avenue, entrance at Aubrey Street. Funeral service will be held on Saturday, November 13, at 1:00 p.m. in the Lavenham Hall, Lavenham, Manitoba. Interment to follow in the family plot, Lavenham-Rosendale Cemetery. You were always there when we needed you, No task was too great or small. With a loving heart and a willing hand for us you did it all. Thanks for the years you gave us And for the times we shared. We only pray that when you left us You knew how much we cared. God saw you getting tired And peace was meant to be, So He put His arms around you And whispered "Come with me." Please hold her in your arms and treasure her with care, Make up for all she suffered And all she had to bear. Please whisper in her ear In case she didnt hear, How much we truly love her And wish she was still here. NEIL BARDAL INC. 949-2200
