<div itemprop="description">Quinn, Myrna Ellen Johnson <br>June 30, 1927 - February 19, 2017 <br> <br>“Here’s to Life! I’ve had a Great one. Thank you, Lord. Born to George and Bess Johnson with brothers, Al and Ross, sister, Rita, I was raised in a loving family with grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins by the dozens. <br><br>I was married to a remarkable man, Donald J. Quinn, for thirty seven years. We raised twelve caring and generous children, Kate, Jim, George, Marian, Terry, Liz, Trish, Marty, John, Patrick, Joe, Dan, and welcomed many #13s. The “Outlaws” John, Sandra, Pat T, Roley, John, David, Diania, Laura, Janette, Trudy, Renee, and Michael and Sarah’s mother, Martina, have been a source of great joy along with grandchildren David, Brendan, Addison, Michael, Rebecca (Paul), Sarah, Taylor (Andy), Molly, Evelyn, Alyssa, Colleen, Rachel, Shannon, Kevin, Will, Scarlett, Thomas, Claire, Harlow, my grandchildren’s partners, and great- grandson, Max. <br><br>I enjoyed special times with my Friday friends, Anne, Dolores, Donna, Jane, Shirley, Tilly and Anna. Thank you all for your love and laughter. <br><br>I am grateful for the medical team who cared for me these past 6 years, Drs. Bahlis, Neri, Botha and Charboneau along with caregivers Daisy, Lorina, Classic LifeCare, AHS Home Care and Palliative Care Team.“ <br> <br>Myrna was born in Hammond, Indiana, raised in Marktown, Indiana, moved to Midland, Texas with Don, and then to Calgary in 1963. She was a great neighbour in Altadore, Springbank and Wildwood. Myrna was a member of St. James Catholic Church which she fondly called her St. James Family for 54 years. Myrna’s gracious spirit, open heart and beautiful smile will be missed by all who knew this wonderful and good person. She was truly an incredible woman, mother, grandmother, friend and community member whose spirit of generosity, calmness, love and friendship blessed us all. <br> <br>A Roman Catholic Mass of Resurrection will be celebrated on Friday, March 3, 2017 at St. James Catholic Church, 5504-20 St SW, Calgary, Alberta at 11:00 a.m. <br><br>Celebration of Myrna’s life continues at 3:00 p.m. at Pinebrook Golf & Country Club, 166 Pinebrook Way SW.<br><br>Private interment with family on June 30, 2017, her 90th birthday. <br><br>In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to a charity of your choice in Myrna’s memory.
