    • WEBSTER (Bishop), Myrna Clare
      Age 92, of Port Williams, passed away Saturday, March 19, 2016, in Shannex-Blomidon Court, Greenwich. Born in Bishopville on June 21, 1923, she was a daughter of the late Ernest and Lola (Coldwell) Bishop. The youngest of six children, she began her married life with Earle Webster in 1942. For 18 years they raised their family and built a successful farm in Port Williams. In November 1960 the unthinkable happened, her husband Earle passed away and Myrna was left with a farm to manage on her own plus five children ages 17 to the youngest, a baby born a week later. Her strength and determination never ceased to amaze. Her priority was always her kids, and with the help of family through the 1960’s she kept the farm going by making sure the work always got done. She took in school boarders and even provided a home for troubled children for many years. She worked incredibly hard doing whatever she could, back in the days of no modern conveniences. In 1970 she married her second husband, Gordon, only to be on her own again two years later when he passed away. Again she carried on by working off the farm to earn an income. Her homemade apple pies and bread were legendary. It was almost magical how quickly she could make an apple pie for desert and have it perfect every time. At the end of her life when she battled Alzheimer’s she always knew her kids. She was a fighter to the end. She was the last surviving member of her immediate family. In addition to her husbands, she was predeceased by sisters, Norine Ross and Nita Munden; brothers, Harold, Harvey and Ernie. A private family burial will take place in Elm Grove Cemetery, Steam Mill.
