Obituary of Myrna Eloise Malloch
Peacefully, surrounded by those who loved her, Myrna Eloise (McDonald) Malloch passed away on August 5, 2023, at the Charlotte County Hospital at the age of 85.
She was born on April 24, 1938, in Lubec Me to the late Frank & Eudora (Seeley) McDonald. She married her great love (Gordon) Glenn Malloch on January 12, 1957. They started their lives in Boston, Mass but Campobello Island soon called them home, where she gave birth to three daughters.
Myrna worked many years at Connor Brothers sardine factory. After its closure she eventually found herself at Roosevelt International Park, where she spent another 20 years entertaining the tourists. It was here that she met her lifelong friends and travelling companions, Carolyn, and Wells Newman. They spent many winters together in Myrtle Beach, as well as lots of other excursions enjoying every moment of her life. When the great grandchildren started arriving, she would make frequent trips to Alberta, where she passed on her child rearing wisdom.
Until recently, she enjoyed good health and loved to walk the beaches. She was a fantastic cook, and shrewd card player, loved to laugh and constantly filled her kitchen table with friends to share it all with.
Myrna is survived by her daughters Sherry Lomax (Calvin) of St. Paul, AB, and Donna Brown (Raye) of Campobello Island. There are also 5 grandchildren, Cliff Lomax (Lace), Brian Lomax, Curtis Lomax, Nicole Brown (Mitchell Logan) and Wesley Brown (Kali) as well as 8 great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews, cousins and 2 sisters-in-law.
Myrna was predeceased by her husband Glenn, infant daughter Theresa, sister Frances Walton and brother Allan Seeley.
Myrna had constant praise for the Dialysis Unit in Saint John. She met her many health challenges head on with strength, dignity, and optimism. She loved her family and many friends. She was generous and compassionate. She will be forever missed by all who knew and loved her.
