Memories Timeline


  1. Today Aunt Myrtle went on to be with Her Lord and savior Jesus Christ…Her family who have gone on before were waiting….What a reunion. Aunt Myrtle was a good person, Who loved the Lord….She was a hard worker, and a single Mom who provided for her family….Aunt Myrtle was one of the last who would go into homes as a caregiver for a mother with a new born baby… Back in the day a woman had to stay in bed two weeks after she gave birth ,which required household help… Any new Mother who had Aunt Myrtle as caregiver will tell you she was the best…Her job required keeping each household going and taking care of the new born and the Mother who were her patients for two weeks until she moved on to another family…..Everyone that knew here will say she was always smiling and happy….Aunt Myrtle will be missed but she would not return to this life because she is in her heavenly home. We say good bye, until we meet again.
