Myrtle spent much of her career at Advance Auto Parts delivering auto parts in Lincolnton. She was known to be a Tar Heel fan but more importantly a loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and friend to many. Her personality was infectious; she had an unwavering kindness that drew people to her. Anyone who knew Myrtle would tell you that she loved animals – especially cats, dogs, and birds -and family get-togethers were cherished events especially during Thanksgiving & Christmas.


When she wasn't spending time with her family or watching Tar Heel games on TV she enjoyed collecting precious moments figurines and angels. She had a keen eye for the perfect picture too! Myrtle loved nothing more than capturing those special moments with family during holidays. She was also a very proud breast cancer survivor.
