Myrna Ruth Lehr

(July 23, 1947 - November 2, 2021)

 

Myrna Ruth Lehr of Camrose, Alberta, formerly of Wainwright, passed away on Tuesday, November 2, 2021, at the age of 74 years.

 

Myrna was born on July 23, 1947, in Wainwright, Alberta to Allan and Clara Taylor and grew up on the family farm near Irma. Her early years were spent at Passchendaele School and after graduating from Wainwright High School, she attended McTavish Business College preparing for her work at the Alberta Legislature.


Her marriage to Gordon Lehr brought them two children, Darcy and Nicole, and many adventures in the form of rodeos; snowmobile races; many moves around Central Alberta; and three summers spent in Norman Wells, NWT. Myrna and Gordie eventually settled in Camrose in 1977 where she worked at the UFA and then the County of Camrose Seed Cleaning Plant.


Myrna was very involved in Al-Anon and in addition to the numerous friends the program connected her to, it also brought her partner Peter into her life to share 22 years of travel, golf, and more rodeos. Myrna was very proud of her 12 grandchildren and always enjoyed holding and playing with any small children who might visit.


She will be greatly missed by her partner Peter Prymo; children Darcy (Lisa) Lehr and Nicole (Nirmal Shahoo) Lehr; 12 grandchildren; sister Lois (Collin) Marx; and many friends and extended family. Myrna was predeceased by her husband Gordon Lehr; brother Ken Taylor; sister-in-law Joanne Taylor; and parents Allen and Clara Taylor. 

 

A private family service was held. A recording of the service can be viewed at the following link: https://vimeo.com/647940534/7223050fdc.
