Myrna Bernice Stemkoski (nee Patience)

April 8, 1946 – January 28, 2022

 

It is always difficult saying goodbye to someone we love and cherish. With great sadness and heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Myrna on January 28, 2022.

Myrna will always be remembered with her love of socializing with family and friends, her memorable laugh will be a sound truly missed. Myrna loved to be active and enjoyed many years curling in her home Club as well as traveling to bonspiels near her hometown where she grew up in Lenswood MB. Myrna truly loved all sports whether it was live or on TV and she surely cheered the loudest.  Myrna was passionate with gardening and if you ever had the chance to see her beautiful yard and gardens, you would see just how much. The love of her gardens also expressed her love for birds and butterflies, she always had her many bird feeders full. Myrna also enjoyed a good game of cribbage in her spare time, 3:30pm at the kitchen table against her favorite competitor.

Left to cherish her memory is her loving husband of 52 years Doug, children - Shelby (Paul), Blane (Marie), Kristin, Brendan “Bud” (Rae); grandchildren, Chantelle (Rob), Nicole (Jarod), Chelsea (Mike), Gracey, Charley, Jayden (Keisha), Shaye, Dylan, Corby; great-grandchildren, Haiden, Marielle, Braelynn and Carsynn; 3 brothers, Robert (Isabel), Denis (Bernice), Larry (Ruby) and one sister Barb (Bob); with countless nieces and nephews.

Myrna was predeceased by her parents Jack and Ester Patience, brother Don, sister Carolyn, sister Audrey and granddaughter Kaitlyn.

A private Celebration of Life will be held at a future date.

At the request of the family in lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in memory of Myrna to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
