Myrna was so sweet to me when I started at TMC-OB in 1996. She worked days, I worked nights, but we reported off / on to each other. She was funny with a dry sense of humor, loved to talk about her family a lot. For the last five years we have both been a part of First Monday Breakfasts of TMC OB nurses. Always fun and we will miss Myrna, remember her love for the Chiefs, peanut M&Ms and Diet Coke. God speed, Myrna

I worked with Myrna at Truman-Lakewood for 10 years. She was one of the best! Always kind and caring and the best sense of humor. And of course, known for her beloved KC Chiefs. I just know that we are onto the Super Bowl, with Myrna as an Angel in their backfield :)

Although I didn't see Myrna very often, it was obvious after first meeting her and knowing her daughter that she was a wonderful mother, sister, and grandmother.
