January 2, 1922 – December 24, 2015
We lost a very dear Mum, Grandma, great Grandma and friend on Christmas Eve. Born in New Tredegar, South Wales, one of nine children born to coal miner Thomas Horton and Jane Horton. She went into nursing at 18 and spent World War II in London, England, amongst the bombings and devastation. Myra had many amusing and poignant stories to tell of those times. She married Don Edwards, BEM in 1947, a young handsome petty officer who pre-deceased her by 40 years and 1 day. Their life together with daughter Liz was mainly spent in Portsmouth. Myra came to Canada in 1982, following Liz and her family, where she met lots of friends through bowling at Mann Park & Newcomers. She will be remembered for her sense of humour, passion for family, and love of the garden. Myra will be missed dearly by the Watts family including Liz, Lucy, Daniel, Morgan, Hana, Simon, Max and friends and family from Canada and the U.K.
