Holden, Myrtle Margaret

November 29, 1932 -
May 14, 2022

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Myrtle Margaret Holden on May 14, 2022 in Invermere BC.

She was predeceased by her husband Ron in 2004 and is survived by three sons: Larry (Sandi), John (Gaby) and Matthew (Teresa), four grandchildren: Leah (Clayton), Shane (Janine), Zoe and Mya, and five great grandchildren: Jessica (John), Erica (Peyton), Jayce, Jesse and Cheyanne.

Born on Nov 29, 1932 in Sussex England, married 1953 to Ronald Holden, immigrated months later to Canada and settled down to start a family in Calgary AB. After many vacations in the Columbia Valley, the family moved to Invermere in 1969.

Myrtle had a number of jobs over the years. She helped Ron in the management of Silverwood’s Dairy, filled many duties at the Quality Bakery and was head of housekeeping at the Radium Golf Resort.

Anyone who knew Myrtle knew she was an extremely energetic little lady whose many activities included travelling, golfing, bowling, golfing, walking and more golfing! She was competitive which got her in the paper for winning trophies for carpet bowling more than once. Well into her 70’s she would race the grand kids down the carpeted stairs… all on their bums. If she was watching TV, it was golf.

A “Celebration of Life” will be held at the Invermere Seniors Hall on Saturday June 25 at 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
