Myrna was born on August 20, 1961, to Pete E. and Mary E. Correa in Amarillo, Texas.
Myrna met the love of her life on Friday, February 13, 1981, and got married July 14, 1984, at Our Lady of Guadalupe. Together they raised four children. They were lifelong partners and completely devoted to one another. Myrna was strong in her Catholic faith, ready to help those in need. Always saying “Pray for them and forgive them.”
Myrna graduated from WTSU (now WTA&MU) with her bachelor’s degree in Accounting and a minor in Computer Information Systems. She worked at Corporate Systems for 20 years as a Senior Program Analyst.

CJD is a rare rapidly progressive, invariably fatal neurodegenerative disorder.
She is preceded in death by her father, Pete E. Correa.
