Thank you, Fundy Nursing Home, for the professional and nurturing care your nurses and staff provide. For the last three years you have gone above and beyond to make sure Myrtle became an important part of your loving family.

Prior to retirement Myrtle worked in several fields including a clerk typest at Royal Canadian Armed Forces in Trenton ON, Connors Brothers, instructor at Cornerstone Christian Academy, Home Support Services and Mail Delivery. She loved knitting, reading, sewing and serving the Lord. She was a long time member of the Cornerstone Tabernacle in St. George and was a Sunday School Teacher for 45 years. Myrtle loved her church and her church family and at one time was Youth Leader. Family meant everything to Myrtle and she looked forward to spending as much time as she could with her loved ones, especially her grandchildren. Though we will miss her, we take comfort in knowing she is Home.
