Obituary for Myrna Irene Dickson (High River)

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Myrna Irene Dickson. Myrna passed away on April 30, 2019 at the Rockyview Hospital in Calgary at 74 years of age.

Myrna was born at Furbys Nursing Home in Killarney, Manitoba, to parents Robert and Margaret Murphy.

Myrna attended Hullet School and later Killarney school. She worked at CIBC before marrying John “Jack” Dickson on February 29, 1964 in Killarney. Myrna and Jack began farming in Lena, Manitoba and continued after a move to Killarney. They sold the farm in 1979 and moved out to Alberta.

Family, heavy horses and volunteering were Myrna’s passion and her greatest gift to them all was time. She loved spending time with family and was usually there before you knew you needed her. She enjoyed the time spent with her heavy horses whether it was showing them or harnessing them up for sleigh rides around the neighbourhood. She volunteered for everything and anything and always lived life to the fullest, no matter what.

Myrna is survived by her children Trish (John) Seacrist of High River and Mark Dickson (Jimmy Meese) of Calgary; grandchildren Brady (Wes) Lee, Colton (Nicole) Hansen, Tyler, Johnny (Devan) and Brandon Seacrist; great-grandchildren Jaxon, Jayden and Mycayla Lee, Konrad and Piper Hansen; Kyrah and Kale Seacrist and their mother Chantelle Robertson. As well as Roy Hanson her travelling partner and good friend over the past few years.

Myrna was predeceased by her loving husband of 51 years John Barry “Jack” Dickson; brother Melvin Murphy; brother-in-law Albert Guille and Bradley Dickson. She is survived by her sister Mavis Guille; sister-in-law Elizabeth Dickson; brother-in-law Blaine (Barbara) Dickson along with many cousins, nieces and nephews.
