Myrtle Louise Leggett
April 24, 1930 – April 3, 2020
On Friday, April 3, 2020, Myrtle Louise (Cain) Leggett, passed away in San Diego at age 89. Louise was born on April 24, 1930, in Houston, Texas, to Elijah Patrick and Laura Callie (Grimes) Cain. She graduated from Jefferson Davis High School and then attended two years of vocational business school. She married Clyde Ezell Leggett on May 6, 1950, in her hometown. They had two children Dennis and Katherine.
Louise had a career as a bookkeeper and administrative assistant until she retired from Kaiser Aluminum in Oakland, California. Throughout her adult life she was a faithful follower of Jesus Christ and a dedicated member of various Assemblies of God churches and, most recently, Rise City Church of Lakeside. She took great joy in sharing encouraging words through writing cards and letters to friends and family. She was a loyal customer of Chico’s and loved dressing up for most any occasion. She was an unselfish supporter of her church, missionaries, and friends and family in need. She believed she was a steward of God’s generosity to her and wanted to be bighearted towards others.
Louise was preceded in death by her parents, sisters Wilma Lee and Alean, husband Clyde, and daughter Katherine. She is survived by her son Dennis, daughter-in-law Anne, grandson Joshua, granddaughter Inga and her husband David Bezio. She treasured every moment with her five great-grandchildren: Asher Leggett, Illiana Bezio, Minerva Leggett, Izzie Bezio, and Cole Bezio. Louise will be buried between her husband and daughter at Brookside Memorial Cemetery in Houston, Texas. In lieu of flowers, Louise would be pleased by donations to any organization committed to bringing hope and healing in Jesus’ name.
