Myrna was a devoted member of Church on the Rock for many years, she was an elder of the church and a devoted anointed praise and worship leader. Myrna loved telling anyone she could about the lord and his love, she liked to shop travel and spend her hunnies money, importantly she loved being with her hubby. They were inseparable. Myrna is greatly missed. She is and will forever be missed by her sons Dana "bones" and Jess, moms baby boys, her only daughter Kristy, "but" we are determined to meet our mother again…like Myrna would say "it's not goodbye, it's see you later". When you hear the name Myrna, she was meaning of grace. When the Lord imagined grace, he thought of her. She never complained, she always gave to others no matter what are who you were. One thing she loved most was telling anyone she could about the Lord and his goodness… she sang for the Lord no matter how she felt she always got up and sang unto the Lord she once said, "that's where there's no pain". The Salway Family appreciate the prayers and support they have received from family and friends God Bless you all.
