I have two favorite memories of Myrtle. The first is when she told me she loved my singing, especially when I was harmonizing. I've never considered myself to be a very good singer, because I get too nervous when I sing in front of anyone. But, she said my harmonizing was beautiful. True or not, that encouragement really made me feel good. Every time I visited, even at Panorama with an out-of-tune piano, she would ask me to sing her favorite old hymns and songs while she played...up until she couldn't play any more. One day I brought down my mom's old solo and duet books and old hymnbooks. We spent a couple of hours looking through them and singing old songs we had re-discovered. The last time I sang for her was when she called me early in the morning one day. She was in pain, upset, and very confused. I sang for her on the telephone to help her relax. That is now a treasured memory.
My other favorite memory was when we visited her and Dad on Whidbey Island and went to church with them one Sunday morning. Our son was very young and was acting up. Myrtle got up and took him out of the service, and then took him home with her. While we were still in church, they went down to the beach and collected seashells. Later she gave him a bouquet of lollipops. Myrtle was the "spoil the kid and let the parents deal with it later" grandma. She was great to Gregory. I always wished they could have lived closer so we could have seen them more often.
I'll truly miss seeing her and bringing her bacon double cheeseburgers from Wendy's or riblets from Applebee's, and playing Bingo with her.
What a great lady!

I remember her welcoming my brother, sister and me into the family and loving us as much as her biological grandchildren.
I remember looking forward to the pickled herring she served at every holiday. I’d never had pickled herring before meeting her when I was 12, she talked me into trying a bite and I was hooked.
I remember her amazing fish chowder (no other chowder compares).
Every time I smell Chantilly Lace Perfume I think of her, she always smelled so pretty.
Most of all, I remember her loving spirit and her love of life.

I remember that as a young girl grandma would give me a sucky candy for being good while she played piano at church.
