Myrna Faye Lampton, 80 of Yoder, Colorado; formerly of Penrose, Colorado went to heaven peacefully on March 10, 2019 at St. Francis Medical Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Myrna was born in Muskogee, Oklahoma on October 29, 1938 to Vera Estelle Raimer. Myrna’s step father was Ben D’Oria. She moved with her family to Montrose, Colorado when she was very young where she grew up and graduated from Montrose High School in 1956. After graduating high school, Myrna married the late Glen James Lampton of Cedaredge, Colorado on December 28, 1956; had four children and was married to Glen for 57 years before his death in 2014.
Myrna and Glen raised their family in the Fremont County area of Colorado where all four of their children graduated from Florence High School and Myrna was a long-time member of Beaver Park Friend’s Church in Penrose, Colorado. She often spoke of her endearing faith and belief in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Myrna worked many places, but her last jobs were as a dietician for St. Joseph’s Hospital and Manor and line worker at Estes Industries.
Myrna loved her friends and family beyond comparison. She never missed birthdays of family members or friends. She loved to cook, sew, bake, garden, write letters and especially loved animals. Her little dog, Josie, will surely miss her. She loved flowers and nature.
Myrna’s children are Nick (Vicky) Lampton of Florence, Colorado; Cliff (Kristina) Lampton of Roseburg, Oregon; (Phil) Eileen Amaya of Yoder, Colorado; and the late Roger Lampton who passed in 2008.

She is also survived by numerous relatives, nephews, nieces, cousins and friends who will dearly miss her.
