She was not a family member of mine but I worked for AAA and was her care aid for so many months I can remember of. I enjoyed taking care and helping her and her husband. They were both sweet and kind. When I took my lunch breaks I enjoyed talking to them. They always listened to the swap shop and gospel music in the mornings I was there.
My deepest sympathy to her family. Mrs. Myrtle was a shining example of a strong Christian wife, mother, and sibling.
Chuck and Myrtle were both some of the finest people I have ever had the honor to know. The family has my sincere sympathy.John Sweeney
We were lucky enough to move next door to Chuck and Myrtle when they lived in Covina. It didn't take long before they became like secondary parents to us. Luckily we got to visit them in Arkansas on occasion. Leo loved to tease Myrtle and get her all worked up before she realizes he was messing with her. We loved them dearly and take comfort in the fact they are together again. ❤
Our deepest sympathy. We grew fond if Myrtle when she was Mom's roommate. Love and prayers for each if you. Pam & Eddie
Myrtle was the kindest sweetiest lady ever. She always had a smile on her face for everyone. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. So sorry for your loss.
She was a amazing woman! Her and Chuck were very special to me! Sorry for your loss! Heaven has 2 beautiful souls back together!
Sorry to all the family! Myrtle lived a long, good life, and will be missed. When Jesus comes back to call the faithful names may she be one of them. Rejoicing in the 1st resurrection.
