Myrna Lee Morton passed away suddenly December 7, 2012. She was born August 4, 1947, and lived at Pathlow, Sask, then St. Brieux and Melfort. Myrna trained in Vancouver as a laboratory technologist and was well respected in her profession. In 1966 Myrna married Gary Loftus. They travelled extensively, settling in Rhodesia where their children Traci and Dion were born. Myrna and the children returned to Canada and lived in Alta, Sask, and BC. A life long learner, Myrna trained as a Licenced Practical Nurse and obtained certifications in foot care, x-ray technology, CPR and accupressure. She retired in 2007 but took contracts at hospitals in northern BC. She was very active in the Anglican Church. Myrna is survived by two children, Traci Loftus (Max Mueller) and Dion Loftus, parents Ted and Betty Morton, brother Neale (Linda) Morton, sisters Brenda (John) Tarnowetzki and Lauri (Terry) Miller, 7 nieces and nephews, 8 great nieces and nephews. Myrna touched many people with her beautiful handmade greeting cards, quilts and other gifts, her thoughtfulness and sense of humour. She continues to affect the lives of others as an organ donor, and so will be remembered with gratitude even by strangers.
Reverend Patricia Langlois will officiate at the funeral service in All Saints' Anglican Church, Melfort, Saturday, December 15, 3:00 p.m. A concurrent memorial will be held in Ashcroft, BC. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation would be gratefully appreciated.
