My aunt&godmother
Full of life/Social
Talented, athletic&competitive
Loving but strict
—-Stayed connected with family,relatives&friends—
- I treasure all the get-togethers and family reunions at her home on Lake Zumbra!

She touched so many of our life’s and I feel so blessed that My Mother, my family & myself were a part of hers.

Myrt was an inspiration to all who new her. I will always remember her spunk, laugh and love for all things to keep moving. I have great memories of the family reunions where they opened their home up for everyone to come and spend some time with them. Heaven get ready for this soul full of contagious energy!

God bless her and all her family.
