Nineteen short months later, they were blessed with their daughter Lorrie. Myrna and Howard started a successful business, Wyatt Plumbing & Heating in the mid 60’s. Howard passed in 1973. Myrna sold the business and raised her two children with family until she remarried in 1975. Myrna and Del built a beautiful home on the farm in the late 70’s. Myrna loved living on the farm and partaking in the many responsibilities that came with farm life, including three gigantic gardens and an orchard. Myrna and Del loved to entertain and she was an amazing host. They held many gatherings and always had more than enough food. Anyone who walked through her door was welcomed with open arms and were well fed when they left. Myrna took pride in her home, her friends and her family. Del passed in 2004. She remained on the farm until she moved into a house in Saskatoon in late 2005. After several years there, she moved into her condo where she made many new friends and enjoyed a myriad of activities. Myrna loved to travel; she visited places all over Canada, the United States, New Zealand, Australia and many tropical places as well. She enjoyed dancing, listening to music, tractor pull competitions, camping, knitting, crafting, visiting the casino, fishing, cooking, playing cards, and spending time with her friends and family.
