Myrtle Lily Page, age 98 passed away peacefully on April 26, 2021 in Souris.
Myrtle was born June 8, 1922 on her parent’s farm in the Brandon Hills. While growing up there she attended Delton School. On March 25, 1944 she married Alfred (Fred) Page of Beresford, Manitoba. They farmed in the Brandon Hills and then south of Beresford.
Three daughters survive Myrtle: Frances (Don) Dodds, Eunice (Ed) Dewhurst, and Marjorie Page. Also surviving Myrtle are daughter-in-law Arlene Page, 11 grandchildren, 24 great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Her husband, Fred in 1975, her son John in 2020, her parents Robert and Catherine Lindsay, her 10 brothers and sisters and their spouses predeceased her.
Myrtle was active in the community. She belonged to the United Church Women, was a life member of the Women’s Institute and belonged to the Fellowship Club in Souris.
Mom had a large garden, raised poultry, and kept herself busy sewing, knitting, crocheting, and quilting. Mom liked to play old-time music on the organ and listen to the bagpipes. She liked watching sports live and on television until her eyesight failed her. Mom liked playing games with the kids. She was the first one under the Christmas tree to find gifts for everyone to open.
Mom spent the last nine years of her life in the Souris Personal Care Home. The staff became her second family and she enjoyed visiting and joking with them. We thank them for that. Visits with her family were always enjoyed.
A family funeral service was held at the Souris-Glenwood Cemetery on Wednesday, May 5, 2021 with Rev. Harvey Hurren officiating. Pallbearers were Gerry, Jeff, and Andrew Dodds, Chris Page, Cole Kirkup, and Barry Good.
Rest in Peace Mom.
Special thanks to Dr. Cram, staff at the Souris personal Care home, Kowalchuk’s Funeral Home, and Rev. Harvey Hurren. In memory of Myrtle, donations may be made to a charity of your choice.
