Myrtle spent her formative years and early married life in North Bay, where she worked and became a member of the Nipissing Rebekah Lodge 152. It wasn’t long before the family was moving to Montreal, with a three year old daughter. For the first time Myrtle’s life was separated from her family in North Bay. This change was to be the beginning of many moves, first to Three Rivers, Quebec, followed by Lachine, Quebec, Wolfville, Nova Scotia, and Sherbrooke, Quebec. Myrtle and Bill returned to North Bay, when he retired in 1973. Myrtle met each change energetically focusing on ways to develop family, church and community life. In Three Rivers she contributed to the Parents Association and spent weekends taking her daughter back to Montreal for ballet lessons.

On returning to North Bay, Myrtle and Bill became leaders in the YMCA Seniors exercise program and active members of the Interlink program, where she exchanged life stories with a student penpal from Grade 4-6. Singing in the choir, comprised of children and seniors, was a bonus to Myrtle. Music was such a central pleasure in her life. Wherever life events took Myrtle, family life remained her focus. She was always concerned about her brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews and took opportunities to do special little things. She provided ever present love for her daughter, granddaughter and husband. She shared her strength and love with Marsha’s family and had a very special Nana relationship with Bryanne, Carla and Cari. She was a loyal friend to Heather Gardner.
