  3. Dear Christie, Matt, Sarah, Allison, Brayden and Aubrey,
    Our hearts are heavy for you, our friends, as you mourn this loss. It was very clear as to what a very special lady Myrna was to each of you! Not only was she a great mother and mother-in-law, but a very proud and loved grandma! I recall seeing Myrna and Lowell at many East High soccer games supporting their Sarah! May you find peace in knowing that your loved one is in a much better place now. And may God wrap all of you in his arms and bring you comfort during this difficult time. With much love, Blaine, Jenith and Jurnee Boucher

  4. Bargen Family – John and I are sending many prayers! Myrna was such a nice lady and so fun! We loved spending time with her and Lowell at the lake. May God be with you all. Cherish the memories.

  5. Brad, Christie, and Lowell. I am so sorry to hear about Myrna’s passing. Mom just told me tonight that Vanessa saw the obit in the paper. I will cherish the memories of her from Brad and my Jr High and High School years. She was a great lady and very loving and caring. I will not be able to make the service but will try to make visitation.
    Mom sends her condolences as well. Our thoughts and prayers to you all and your extended family. Love you guys.
