Myrna was predeceased by her husband, Vernon Krszwda; son-in-law, Mark MacDonald; brothers, Mick, Frank, Joseph and sisters, Dorothy, Cora, Kathleen, Helen, Colleen, and Mamie.

The family would like to extend a special thanks to the staff of 4B and ICU of the Cape Breton Regional Hospital.

As well as long-time friends, Louise Warren, Mary Jane MacMullan, and Douglas Lloy.
