Myrna was born July 16, 1940 in Ft. Dodge, Iowa to Gary and Ardys Puderbaugh Butler. She graduated from SEW High School in 1958 and married Gerald Beck on September 12, 1958 in Laurel, Iowa. They were blessed with 6 children: Danny, Dixie, Ted, Andy, Gary, and Tony. She loved being a mother and also worked at Blue Cross Blue Shield, McCoy's Hardware and as a postmaster's assistant in Milo.

Myrna loved going to garage sales, flea markets, and collectamania. She also enjoyed watching and feeding the birds and reading a book. You could always find her enjoying her children and grandchildren. She might have played a game of horse or baseball with her boys; or playing a game with her grandchildren on the floor. And just because she loved them, didn't mean she would let them win. She was very thoughtful and could pick out the most special gift for everyone in her family.

Myrna passed away April 16, 2010 at the Taylor House Hospice. She was preceded in death by her parents: Gary and Ardys Butler; and siblings: Jewel Haltom and Jim Butler.
She will be missed by her husband of 51 years, Gerald "Jerry" Beck; children: Danny Beck of St. Paul, MN, Dixie Beck of Milo, Ted (Sylvia) Beck of Park Ridge, IL, Andy (Lea Ann) Beck of Lacona, Gary (Will Dallagan) Beck of Omaha, and Tony (Shawna) Beck of Milo; 9 grandchildren; and a sister Aileen Manser of Lacona. Snowy, her favorite cat, will also miss her very much.
