Myrt's love of Wheaton, and her active support of the community, led friends to refer to her as a "one-person Wheaton Booster Club." A resident of Wheaton, IL for 57-years, while her three children were growing up, she became active in Emerson PTA and also served as a Girl Scout Leader. She was a member of Department Club for 20-years during which she held many offices in the organization. Myrt was greatly interested in politics and was a member of the Wheaton Women's Reoublican Club for 20+ years. She served on the Board for several years, and last served as Vice-President (membership.) A member of the Wheaton Environmental Commission for 8-years, Myrt was responsible for the upkeep of Liberty Square Park for several years. She served as an election judge for two decades and was active in Edison PTA as Vice President, as well as was a Charter Member of the Junior Women's Club of Wheaton. Having moved to Florida in 2005, to be closer to her daughters, she continued actively gardening and re-ignited her love of sports by taking up golf, which she enjoyed well into her later years. Driving the ball was no challenge, for her, only seeing where the ball landed! She will be missed......
