Myrtle was legally blind at an early age but this did not keep her from doing the things she loved to do. She was very good at playing the guitar and loved to write her own songs and sing. She would use a magnifying glass to draw and paint. Myrtle made a carousel horse out of paper machete and hand painted it. She wrote articles that were published in the Arabian Horse News Magazine and Arabian Horse World Magazine. Myrtle was known for getting around town on her horse because she could not drive. She loved to sit on her front porch with the loves of her life Don and her kitty’s enjoying the wonders of nature and specially the birds and the deer and she was a big fan of the Chicago Cubs.
Memorials may be made to her family to determine a charity at a later date
