What a Grand lady!! We feel blessed to have known and proud to have been related to her. We always stopped by and visited when we were in the Robinson area and enjoyed the family stories that she would share. She was always so vibrant and uplifting.

I am the son of Clarence and Mary Clements. When I was born, my mother contacted phlebitis and was unable to care for herself or me for a few weeks. Myrtle had just turned 14 and stayed with us and cared for us during that time period. Family taking care of family. Every bit as gratious and caring then as through the rest of her life.

Our deepest sympathy to all of the family

So many memories of my dear Aunt Myrtle! I can see Daddy walking around the house on his hands, us kids playing in the yard, and oh how I loved listening to all the stories. Aunt Myrtle had so much family history in her head and I loved listening to all she knew. Will miss her so much, but am much blessed to have had her in my life. Love you, Barbara, and am praying for you and all the family.
Love, Sharon

Myrtle was a wonderful lady. She stayed with me and my sister Ann when our parents were away. She always was a lot of fun and a joy to be around. Our thoughts go out to all the family !

Barbara & family-all our love and thoughts are with you. We have lost a wonderful member of our family, Aunt Myrtle was such a strong lady and definitely showed us how we should all live our lives. I always looked forward to her cards/notes and the way she wrote down the page and then around the edge of the page, she had so much news to tell. I can just imagine all the family stories she is now sharing with all those who have gone on before her and she will be standing tall. We will miss her. Love, Roble, Linda & Erika

I knew this lady through her son, my best friend, Don, that passes before her. Knowing Don made me understand what kind of person she was to raise a son like him.
She is now with him and her husband, finally at peace and good health.
' Only when the last person that knew her passes will she be forgotten'!

Barbara and family - Your mother was such a caring lady. I remember my mother talking about her when I was young and always remembered her name since they were both "Myrtles". In my dad's later years she always sent him a birthday card with a long written message. I would read it to him and he would so much enjoy hearing from her. She will be missed by many..................

Oh, Barbara, I am so sad to hear of the loss of your mom! She was a lovely lady with a great smile and was so very sweet. I was just home for my mother's passing and came back home Monday evening. I am so sorry I cannot make the trip back, but please understand you are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. I have always thought the world of you, and I know just how much it hurts to lose your mom.
