Gudrun Myran (Hofstad)

December 9, 1933 - May 18, 2021


It is with great sadness we announce Gudrun Myran passed away peacefully to be with her beloved husband of 59 years, David, parents, Haagen and Marit, and sister, Ingeborg.

Gudrun will be deeply missed by her son Glen David, daughter Anne Margret (Luigi), grandchildren Adam, Isak, and Raymond.

Gudrun maintained a strong connection to her homeland of Norway. She is survived by her lifelong friends Hanna, Solveig and Bjarne who she last visited in 2017.

Gudrun immigrated to Canada in May 1955 with her husband of 11 months and settled in Wells BC. She moved to Vancouver Island in the summer of 1956 where she was a devoted homemaker and mother until her passing.

Gudrun was a member of the Moose Lodge for over 20 years and spent many hours working alongside David in the workshop contributing to community projects.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

Gudrun’s favorite Norwegian prayer;

Gud som kaller natten frem

Og stjernelyset tenner

Bevar o gud vaart kjare hjem

Wi folder vaare hender

Og ber for alle fjernt og nert

Og tror at du som ha ross kjer

Vill vaake for oss alle


We will miss you Mom, until we meet again.

Relation: She worked for my mother at Bridie’s Restaurant

Gudrun was a special lady. She worked for my mother, Bridie, at our restaurant. Gudrun had a great sense of humor and we all had so much fun working together. She always stayed calm when we got extremely busy. Those were very special times at the restaurant. We were very lucky to have her on our team.
