LACOMBE, ALBERTA, CANADA - It is with great sadness that the family of Myrna Jane (Sievila) Kartusch announces her passing on July 13, 2018, at the age of 75 years in Lacombe, Alberta, Canada.

Myrna was born in Ironwood, Mich., and was a graduate of Luther L. Wright High School class of 1961. She navigated her diagnosis of cancer with admirable fortitude, dignity and positivity. At the time of her graceful passing, Myrna was surrounded by her husband of nearly 54 years, Wayne, children Mark, Lisa and Mick, as well as the loving care of other family members both in person and in spirit.
