    I am so sorry to hear about Myrtle passing. My deepest condolences to her family. I knew Myrtle both personally and professionally. Professionally she assisted me in selling my home during a troubled time. Personally, she was there to support me whenever it was needed whether it was at church or in the community. You will be missed Mrytle! Mrytle was my friend. God Bless you all.

  • Margit Ellen says:

    It seems like only yesterday that I saw her at Tsawwassen Town Centre and am sorry to hear of her passing. We also shared a brief time at ReMax in 1992 and I was introduced to Bob at that time. My prayers are with you all.

  • Lillian and Bill Roberts says:

    It is with a profound shock and extreme sadness to hear that Myrtle has passed on as it seems only yesterday that we so joyfully dined and danced with her and Bob at their lovely 50th anniversary. I worked with Myrtle for many years and she was always full of life, cheerful and a most delightful partner. After I retired she worked relentlessly to find us our present home. Although it is a while since we last met, I will always remember Myrtle with such fond memories. Bill and I and our family, send her family our most sincere condolences.

Thank you God for the life of Myrtle Lees.

    Dear Bob, I was so saddened to hear that Myrtle had died so unexpectedly. I can only imagine how difficult this is for you and your family. We always hope for more time with those we love, but take comfort from the promise that Jesus has prepared a place for us.
    I offer you sincere sympathy and prayers for you both, that you will continue to be united in spirit, through faith.
    May you find peace and strength for the coming days Bob.

  • Anna and Scotty McClenaghan says:

    Dear Bob
    Sorry to hear about dear Myrtle.
    She sold us our first home when we moved
    To Tsawwassen. She had become a friend
    Immediately as her kind heart was always willing to help out for whatever u needed.
    So kind that even our boys remember her
    When they were small. They even looked up her phone number to call her when a small emergency had happened.
    Even today years later, they are sad to hear
    Her passing. And told me a few stories they remember of Myrtle. That’s how kind she was.
    I’m am sure she is with Jesus.
    May she rest in Peace.
    Anna and Scotty McClenaghan and
    Boys Neil and Matt
