  •     Wayne Myhre, 70, of Montevideo, died on Tuesday, April 10, 2012 at the Hennepin County Medical Center surrounded by his family.
        Funeral services were conducted on Saturday, April 14, 2012 at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Montevideo with Rev. Donald S. McKee and Rev. Marie Eckberg officiating. Interment was in Sunset Memorial Cemetery.
        Wayne Allan Myhre was born on July 1, 1941 in Mandt Township of Chippewa County,  to Oscar and Alfa (Nokleby) Myhre. He was baptized and confirmed at Jevnaker Lutheran Church and graduated from Montevideo High School in 1959. On June 8, 1963, he was united in marriage to Patricia Hegna at Hazel Run Lutheran Church. They lived and farmed in Mandt Township for many years before he retired from farming in 1986. Following his retirement from farming, Wayne worked at numerous jobs including ISD #129, DJ’s Sporting Goods and Our Savior’s Lutheran Church. After living on the farm for 29 years, they moved into Montevideo in 2002. He was a long-time member of Jevnaker Lutheran Church and currently was a member of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church. He had also been a member of the Lions Club and sang in the Fiesta Chorus. Wayne volunteered at Luther Haven, helped serve Meals on Wheels, and was always willing to help when someone needed it. Wayne enjoyed tinkering in his garage on cars, lawnmowers and anything else that needed to be fixed.
