Myrtle and her husband, Raymond loved to travel. She was up for travel at any time to any destination. Every trip away was an adventure. She eagerly adapted to new environments and could find interest in anything. She met new people and learned new things in each new destination.
Myrtle’s faith was deep and strong. She loved the Lord and made a difference in the lives of people she chose to surround herself. She cherished her church and her church family and was very active in ministries at Newburgh United Methodist Church in Livonia.
