With immense sorrow in their hearts, the family of Myra Querry announce her passing on Friday, September 21 after a long and difficult struggle. Left to mourn her passing and celebrate her life are her loving husband of 55 years, Ed, daughters Shelly (Ken) McKetsy and Denise (Darcy) Freistadt, grandchildren Travis McKetsy, Shea (Steve) Meginbir, Chris (Trisha) Freistadt and Marissa Freistadt. Myra was overjoyed when her first great-grandchild, Xavier was born and to be able to spend the last year with him. His visits were always the highlight of her days. Myra is survived by her sister Evelyn Almrude and two brothers, Bing (Betty) Crossman and Graham Crossman, brothers- in-law Nick Wishlow, Bernard (Shirley) Querry, Steve (Dianne) Querry and three generations of nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by seven sisters and their spouses, whom she missed dearly. Myra was the youngest of 11 children born to Percy and Mildred Crossman of Humboldt. She married Ed Querry in 1957 and during the first years of their marriage Myra and Ed and the girls made many friends among the pipeline crews throughout Saskatchewan and Alberta, many of whom are still friends today. Myra was a kind person whose special love was for little children - she revelled in their energy and especially in the mischief they created - if she could teach them a new trick like sticking their fingers in the sugar bowl, or a new word, her day was complete. Myra was a loving wife and best friend to Ed, a gentle and caring Mom, Grandma, Great Grandma, Aunt and friend. An informal Celebration of Myra's Life will be held between 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 25, Windsor Chapel (lower level) corner of 8 Ave N and Windsor St (use side door). In lieu of flowers, those wishing to honour Myra's memory are encouraged to make a donation in her name to Canadian Diabetes Association, 104, 2301 Ave C N, Saskatoon, SK, S7L 5Z5. Arrangements entrusted to Mourning Glory Funeral Services.
