November 28, 1933 – June 20, 2022
In loving memory of Myrtle Wood who passed away peacefully with her family by her side at the Manitoulin Centennial Manor on Monday, June 20, 2022 at the age of 88. Myrtle was the second youngest daughter of Leslie and Sarah (nee Cosby) Wood. She was the beloved sister of Leonard, Edith, Alvin, Leland, Elmer, Vera, Norman, Lorne, Florence, Charles, Stella and Berniece (all predeceased) and survived by her sister Marie (Cliff) Tann. She will be forever missed by her loving friend Don Shean. Myrtle will be missed by many nieces, nephews and friends. Myrtle attended school in Green Bay. She worked for Ruth and Roy Dunlop for 31 years at the Bay Side Cottages. After working she retired and lived at home with her brother Norman. She enjoyed many family get-togethers and was a phenomenal cook. She had a love for flowers. Before moving in to the Manor she enjoyed walking her neighbour, Don’s, dog. She always looked forward to the summers when Berniece and Marie would move down to the lake. She’d go swimming twice a day with them, go walking, go on paddle boat rides and enjoy a cup of tea together. She always enjoyed going to the casino as well. She had a very large stuffed bear collection and she loved every one of them. Most importantly, she loved her family and enjoyed any chance anyone stopped in for tea. Family and friends will gather at Island Funeral Home on Saturday, June 25, 2022 from 10 am until 12 pm. A funeral service will take place from there at 12 pm. Burial will follow in the Coldsprings Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Myrtle’s honour to a charity of your choice.
