Heritage Funeral Home - Sioux Falls Obituary

Myrna Serck, 87, passed away peacefully at her home on December 1, 2019.

Myrna was born on May 6, 1932 to Walter and Elsie (Egge) Anderson in Colman, SD. She graduated from Chester High School in 1950. Myrna married Ervin Serck at Eastside Lutheran in Sioux Falls on September 23, 1954. They welcomed three children, Steven, Margene and Bonnie. They made their home in the house that Ervin built on the family farm north of Lester, Iowa.

Ervin was inducted into the US Army eight months after they were married. He was eventually stationed in Stuttgart, Germany where Myrna joined him. They lived in Stuttgart for 10 months and were able to visit many historical places, relatives and several countries. They returned to the family farm where Myrna worked in various jobs throughout the years, but the most important job to Myrna was her role of farm wife and mother. Ervin and Myrna together loved square dancing and ballroom dancing, and enjoyed traveling and spending many winters in Texas and later Arizona. Ervin and Myrna moved to Sioux Falls after retirement. She was always busy and loved her years teaching Sunday school and attending Ladies Aid at English Lutheran Church in Larchwood, going for walks, and gardening. Nothing was more important to Myrna than her family. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.

Myrna will always be remembered for her vibrant smile and friendly personality.

Grateful for sharing her life are her husband of 65 years, Ervin, of Sioux Falls, two daughters Margene (Curt) Pederson, Sioux Falls, Bonnie (James) Van Ginkel, Inwood, Iowa, six grandchildren Laura (Steve) Griffin, Jessica (Derik) Fossum, Erica (Ryan) Felsheim, Christina (Kyle) Haahr, Amy (Tyler) Koedam, and Jason (Tara) Van Ginkel and 11 great-grandchildren and brothers Howard Anderson and David (Sharon) Anderson and a sister-in-law, Lavonne Anderson.

Myrna is preceded in death by her son, Steven, parents, 2 brothers and 4 sisters.

Funeral services for Myrna will begin at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, December 5, 2019 at Heritage Funeral Home, burial will be in the Larchwood Cemetery. Visitation with the family present will be on Wednesday at the funeral home from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.
