Suzanne Downing Must Read Alaska: Myrna Maynard
Good morning … Somewhere in Alaska … Drive carefully in snow-globe Anchorage on this Good Friday. It’s an edition of Must Read Alaska’s News Flash you won’t want to miss, and it’s dedicated to Myrna Maynard, who passed from this world Thursday.

Myrna was the treasurer for many campaigns in Alaska — all of them Republican. She spent countless hours working on the campaigns of Congressman Don Young, Sen. Dan Sullivan, and Sen. Lisa Murkowski.

When her passing was finally imminent, her longtime friend Don Young rushed to her side at Providence Alaska Medical Center, but alas, he arrived moments after she passed. Yet he stayed with her for a long time to say his goodbyes. It’s the side of Don Young that few see.
