McLaughlin, Mary Helen Hogan McClafferty Hendry fondly know as Myra to her family and friends passed away with her family by her side on Friday, September 28, 2012 at the Travellers Lodge in Nanaimo. Myra was born on May 29, 1930 in Greenock, Scotland and came to Canada with her husband William in 1957 and settled in Prince Rupert for several years before moving to Prince George where she worked at the hospital. In 1986 the couple retired to Lantzville. Myra was a wee lady with a heart as big as her name and had a great sense of humour. Some of her interests included: walking, aerobics, Scottish country dancing, singing and most of all spending time with her family and friends. She was a very social person and was loved by everyone who met her. If you met Myra then you are smiling right now. She is survived by her husband of 60 years, William McLaughlin, her daughter, Margaret Collins, her sons Joseph (Vicki) McLaughlin, Ronnie McLaughlin, 5 grandchildren, Ryan (Sue) Collins, Randy (Amy) Collins, Joe (Carrie) Collins, Kelsey McLaughlin, Connor McLaughlin and 5 great grandchildren. Myra, you will be in our hearts forever.
The family wish to thank Dr. Steyn and the caring and compassionate staff, residents and their families for making Myra's 6 year stay at the Nanaimo's Travellers Lodge so comfortable and secure.
Myra was a member of the Lantzville Legion Branch #257. There will be a celebration of Myra's life upstairs at the legion on Thursday, October 4, 2012 from 2pm to 5pm at the Lantzville Legion.
In lieu of flowers please send donations to the Nanaimo Travellers Lodge.
