Myrna

Sue, Myrna...always sisters.  

Regrettably, I have to share that Myrna, my beloved sister; a mom, grandmother, aunt and great-grandmother, left us on Thursday, September 23, 2021.

The Future

A few weeks ago at morning coffeetime, Myrna and I had discussed where we wanted to go with The Iowa Housewife...and had decided that I would continue, only on Thursdays and Sundays.  She was not feeling up to the cooking and the chores involved in getting posts on the blog, but she enjoyed her interaction with our friends who commented and wanted us to continue as long as we could.

Starting next week, I will start posting on Thursdays and Sundays, and we will see how it goes.  I want to honor her wishes, and after so many years, I still enjoy blogging.  The time we shared working together on the blog...really a retirement hobby for us, brought us even closer together as siblings.

Our family and I want to thank all of you who took the time to share your thoughts and prayers with us. 

Sue

  23. My deepest condolences to you-what you and your sister had was so special and you both brought a lot of love and joy to those of us who follow you. I have found you both a tender escape from the sometimes ugly reality of today's life and a reminder of how life should be. I just checked in this afternoon and read the unfortunate news-you have a lifetime of wonderful memories and it is something for you and your family to treasure. Certainly hope you carry this on in her memory. Prayers for a peaceful repose of Myrna's lovely soul.
