I worked with Myrtle at Maybelline and always enjoyed her company. I would run into her occasionally after we both retired and always had nice conversations. She’ll be missed
James, I am so sorry for your loss. God’s arms around you all.
I was so sorry to hear of Myrtles passing. She was an older cousin. I had kept up on her condition through relatives. She was 2 months younger than my oldest sister, Evelyn. We lost her about 25 years ago. It was nice to have visited with her and everyone at past Tubbs reunions. I am just so sorry. Prayers for all. Judy (Wood) McNeil
