It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Myrna Gail Coish on March 4th, 2023 at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital. Myrna was born on December 17, 1941 in New Waterford to the late William and Josie Copeland.
In her early years, you would have met Myrna at the local corner store that she ran with her family. Later, Myrna was known to work at Sobeys in New Waterford. She enjoyed her time watching the news, her Hallmark movies, and her Thursday night Rummoli games.
Myrna was surround by friends, family and neighbours who loved and cherished her. Myrna will be especially missed by her loving husband, Thomas Coish, daughter, Kim (Ron) Coish; son, Brad (Laura) Coish and of course her grandchildren. Myrna is survived by her sister Lona (Joseph) Griffin and their children, Lori, and Joey. She will also be missed by her sisters-in-laws June Manzine and Marie Coish; as well as her many nieces and nephews.
We would like to give a special thank you to Carol-Ann McNeil (niece) for all the love and support she gave to Myrna during her very challenging journey. Your kindness and commitment will always be appreciated. Thank you for being you!
