In Loving Memory of Myrtle Wright, of Gore Bay,
Myrtle passed on peacefully into the presence of her Saviour with her two sons by her side,
on Thursday, January 26, 2023, during her 93rd year.
Predeceased in 2020 by Tom,
her loving husband of 66 years.
Beloved mother of Jim (Sue) and Ron (Kim);
cherished grandmother of Melody, Alyse, Ryan,Courtney, and Natasha.
Myrtle will be sadly missed by many nephews, nieces, and cousins.
Predeceased by her father Edward Mastin.
Myrtle was a devoted wife and mother, keenly focussed on the needs of her family… she only worked some part-time shifts at the post office, when her boys got older.
Each November, when the men were busy hunting, Myrtle enjoyed getting out with the ladies to tour the island.
This tradition continued through her years in the Manitoulin Lodge, as Evelyn and Pat would take her out for a ride and dinner at GiGi's.
Myrtle especially enjoyed summer outings with Millie… you may have seen the pair on their scooters, taking in Gore Bay.
In August 2018, Myrtle required the skills of a heart specialist which gave her several healthier years. However, time, a recent bout with RSV, and missing Tom all took its toll.
The family is grateful for her long life, and wish to thank Drs. Wilson and Al Hadi, caregivers of the Manitoulin Lodge and Mindemoya Hospital, as well as her friends for their devotion to caring for those in need.
