Myrna Elaine Nickerson, beloved wife, mother and grandmother, passed away April 18, at her home in Rochester, Washington, surrounded by family. Myrna was born to George and Lorraine McPhee in Malta, Montana. She married Sterling D. Nickerson on April 24, 1958, and they raised three children in Grand Coulee, Washington. They had two sons, Sterling L. Nickerson and Kelley M. Nickerson, and a daughter, Kimberly L. Mechling. Myrna left six grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren and 19 great-great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband Sterling (Nick) Nickerson, two brothers and both parents.
Myrna was known for her ready smile and gentle spirit. Her baked goods were sought after, especially homemade bread and cinnamon rolls. All who knew her would agree she was the most selfless person they had ever met. She loved babies and gardening and devoted herself to her husband, children and family.
A celebration of life service will be held at a later date to be determined.
