Her greatest joy was just spending time with her family, having large dinners together especially holiday meals, and she was always ready for road trips. She will be remembered for being humble and kind to everyone. Loving gratitude goes to the staff of the Broadway and St. Catherine's Hospice for the extraordinary attention and caring in Myrtle's last days.
