We Remember

LOWES, Myrna Anne (nee Pufahl)

October 6, 1936 — February 22, 2016

Myrna passed away peacefully in Kelowna General Hospital on February 22, 2016 at the age of 79. She is survived by her son Gordon (Nicole) of Lake Country; daughter Christine (Stephen) of Vancouver; step grandsons Michael and Nicholas; and brother Dennis, niece Heather and nephews David and Jeffrey, all of Saskatoon.

Myrna was born in Naicam, SK. She graduated from the University of Saskatchewan and University of Toronto with a degree in social work. In 1960 she married Larry Lowes in Weyburn, and in 1964 the family moved from Saskatoon to Kelowna.

Myrna enjoyed a long and rewarding career in social work. In 1987 she moved from Kelowna to work in the Prince George area and then onto Vancouver and Victoria. She considered herself fortunate her work took her to many areas of BC. In 2001 she moved to Vancouver and returned to Kelowna last month.

While in Vancouver, Myrna did volunteer work at the Cancer Lodge and Brock House where she made warm and supportive friendships. A highlight of the week was Thursday morning bridge with good friends. Myrna loved to travel and visited many countries. Her favorite holidays were theatre weeks in London, and walking in Northern England. She will be remembered fondly for her intellectual curiosity, love of reading and good literature.

Special thanks and appreciation to friends, old and new in Vancouver and Kelowna, for their kindness, generosity and support. There will be no service as requested. A small family gathering will be held at a later date.
