Julia Myrna Heiskell, a resident of the Generations Agritopia home, died Friday the 12th of October at her daughter, Janice’s, home in Chandler.
Born in 1935 in Lima, Peru, Myrna attended an American school and as a young woman, she worked at the ExxonMobil refinery in Talara, Peru as a Personal Assistant to the Manager.
