I went to high school with Myrna. She was always so sweet and kind.
Rest In Peace Myrna.
What a sweet and beautiful person.
Thoughts and prayers for all her family.
Myrna was such a sweet person and wonderful to work with. The last time I saw her she was taking one of my classes at AC. The first night of class I had a freak accident and broke my foot. She wheeled me in a chair from the classroom to the elevator and then to my car so I could drive to the emergency room. Truly showed how much of a blessing she was. Prayers to her family.
Myrna was a rising star in my book. A devoted wife & mother with a heart of gold. She was smart, funny, & a precious friend. I was honored to have worked with Myrna for 20 + years at Corporate Systems. I was saddened to hear of her illness. — a precious person taken too soon. May our lord bless Myrna’s family and provide them comfort.
My sincere condolences to Myrna’s family. Requiescat In Pace. Amen. Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she Rest In Peace. Amen.♥️ 🌹

Our deepest sympathy to Myrna’s family. and to Mary Ellen, Deanah, Judi, Peter and their respective families. We are saddened by Myrna’s passing but know she is with her father and loved ones in heaven.
I worked with Myrna at Corporate Systems straight out of college and for 20 years after that and she always picked on me when I was a gullible 22 year old. We kept in touch until the past couple of years and her illness and death sadden me since she was such a bright soul and a great influence for me early in my career. I pray for Joe and the kids as they mourn her loss but celebrate her beautiful life.
Sending my deepest condolences to the Fierro family.
