Myrna was one of the unsung heroes--at her own insistence--always ready to lend a hand to any project at Lincolnwood Jewish Congregation, not once but on an ongoing basis. Myrna provided food for the weekly Shabbat afternoon minyan, and for many years rose early every morning to provide a hot breakfast for the men and women attending shacharit services. We spent many hours together in the kitchen--on those occasions I joined her and Shirley and Jadwiga in preparing Shabbat kiddush or putting together food for a special occasion. She always had her tablet filled with pictures of her family, of whom she was so proud. She never hesitated to speak her mind, but in her own quiet way. She was very much missed since she was unable to stand or walk without pain, and every Shabbos there were numerous congregants asking one another what the latest was with Myrna. She was selfless in her devotion to the Shul and leaves a rift in our hearts and the life of the Shul that cannot be filled by any other. May her memory always be for a blessing.

To Myrna's family,
Myrna was one of the most selfless, giving people I've ever known. She never said no when I called with a knitting emergency (and she always fixed my mistakes.) She knitted hats for my daughters and later, gifts for my grandchildren. She got up every morning before the crack of dawn to prepare breakfast for those attending the morning minyan. Her contributions to the shul were never-ending: shopping for ingredients for the weekly Shabbat kiddushes, preparing foods for the Shabbat afternoon meal and arranging and delivering trays for a shiva house. She did it all without asking for or wanting any accolades. I got to know her well during our knitting sessions (when she was always helping and teaching me.) As we talked, I heard her proudly tell me about her family - her brother, sister-in-law and their children whom she loved dearly and of course, her own children, grandchildren and to her great excitement, her first great-grandchild! Myrna was one of a kind and I will miss her more than I can express. My deepest condolences to all of you!

I am so sorry to hear of Myrna's passing. She was always such a giving and selfless person. I don't think she wasted a minute of time. She helped my father, Ludwig Freund on so many occasions. She helped him move, was always bringing him treats, kept him up to date on all the shul needs. Honestly, the depth of her generosity is too extensive to begin to enumerate. Most of all she was a dear and devoted friend, and I emphatically believe their friendship added years to my fathers life. I am sorry for your tremendous loss. May her memory and lifetime of Mitzvot stay in your hearts.
