(Age 91)

Passed away in Spokane on Sunday, September 2, 2012. She was born in Wallace, ID on August 5, 1921. Myrna’s childhood was spent in Missoula, MT where she attended grade school and high school. After graduation from the University of Montana, she joined the Army and worked as a Japanese Decoder. Following her time in the Army, Myrna would move to Spokane and work at Farragut Naval Base in the post office as well as several post offices around Spokane. After a 44-year long career with the USPS, Myrna retired and pursued her hobbies which included sewing, knitting and crocheting, and dance of all types. She loved flowers, walking in her neighborhood, hockey (to which she had season tickets), and particularly long summers at their vacation home on Diamond Lake. There was a special place in her heart for her dogs that she showed for which she won many ribbons and trophies. Nike, Jewel, and Lily were her last companions. Myrna also belonged to the Ladies V.F.W., Eastern Star, and American Postal Workers Union. She was a compassionate, loving wife and mother. We love you, our wonderful mother and you will be sorely missed every day. After 50-plus years of marriage, Myrna is together again with her husband Charles. She is survived by her daughters Janet Ferg and Sharon Ferg, both of Spokane; and her brother Ned Hansen. The family would like to thank At Home Care, especially Shannon Shilling, special friend Carrie Lopez, and David Waddel.
