Myrna was my mother in law for many years. She was my second mom and one of the classiest ladies I've ever known. She and Bill took my family and I on several amazing adventures. Rest in peace Myrna. Thanks for the memories
As a fellow Indiana Bell person, I knew both Bill and Myrna. My life has been richer for having had them in my life. Peace.
Wishing I could be there for the celebration of Myrna's life. I always loved my visits with Uncle Bill and Myrna. She was eager to talk, always had stories to share and loved to hear about my family and work adventures. She loved my Uncle Bill with all her heart as well as her step children and many grandchildren. We talked about our travels and how the world was so rapidly changing. Myrna made a difference in the lives of many and will be missed.
Myrna and I have been best friends for many many years. We have shared so much, traveled together and always enjoyed our time together. I miss my friend. But now I know she is happy to be with her best friend, Bill. I miss them both. Jan Ogle

Myrna & I had a very special relationship. It started in 1980 with her being a patient in the dental office where I worked as a dental assistant and then over a period of 30 years it blossomed into a Mother/Daughter relationship. We both agreed that God had placed us in each other's lives for a reason. I cherish all the time I got to spend with her at her kitchen table talking about everything... life,husbands, kids, our faith in God, her travels & food. We cried & we laughed. She showed me so much love & kindness and I loved taking care of her.
When I left her in Arizona, I told her we wouldn't say goodbye. We would say "I'll see you when I see you" .
Today I say that again because I know I will see her again in Heaven & I know she's reunited with Bill & is happy & at peace. Love, Cheryl Scalf
I have so many happy memories of Myrna. We went to the same elementary school, dear old # 1. Our get togethers at Sues won't be the same without her. Until we meet again. Love, Becky
