Myrtle was a die-hard Baltimore Orioles Fan. She spent many hours making beautiful blankets for the "Blankets of Love" group. Many babies have been warm and cuddly because of her. Myrtle enjoyed playing cards with her special girlfriends on Friday nights and treasured the times spent with her kids, grandkids and sister, Nancy.
Although she endured many serious health issues over the years, she always had a positive outlook on life and never lost Faith in the Lord.
