Myrna Corrine Blunt

Myrna Corrine Blunt was born on the 15th and 16th of December, her parents could not agree so her birth certificate shows both dates. She grew up in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada rather poor. Her parents split up when she was 9 and she raised a younger brother and toddler sister. It was a rough childhood. She married and had two sons and a daughter that died before she was born. Now she has 15 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild. Myrna accepted Christ before she was 30 and went on the mission field for a couple years in England where she took care of missionaries coming and going, again being a mother to lots of people.

Myrna finished high school than got a degree in accounting at age 40. She also came to America and became a citizen, which she was very proud of. She worked for several communication companies almost always at the director level. Her last place was director of finance at CMA here in Mena. She was very smart, very beautiful, outgoing and loved life. She had a fantastic sense of humor and used her entire body to tell a story with her big blue eyes, facial expressions and hands going in all directions. She could make anyone laugh. She loved Grace Bible Church and all the people in it, asking to get the bulletin every Sunday even though she was too sick to attend she wanted to pray for anyone that needed it. The last year of her life was filled with pain due to cancer with hospital stays and chemo, still she read her bible every morning and prayed for any number of people without fail. She always wanted to sing but she would get off key sometimes but now she is singing with the angels making beautiful music in heaven, where everything is beautiful and her husband can’t kill the plants. I am her husband and I miss her dearly, but I had her for 18 wonderful years and she put up with me. Now she is loved, out of pain and will still be praying for anyone she thought would need it. Her loss is great, she left a hole in my heart that one day will be repaired when I see her again.

She is survived by her loving husband of 18 years, Dale Blunt; two sons, Robert and Greg Wurzburg; four sisters, Linda Langill, Judy Inman, Heather Coulonbe, and Debbie Belof; one brother, Chris Tricker. She is preceded in death by her parents Percy and Muriel Tricker.
