Myrtie CHILDS Obituary

Myrt worked for 20+ years and retired from Abbott Laboratories as an administrative assistant. Myrt loved the Lord, her family, and her church family at First Baptist Church of Avondale Estates. A long-time volunteer with roles as varied as Sunday school teacher, nursery worker and librarian emeritus, Myrt was very fond of telling jokes and even more fond of repeating them. Throughout her adult life and through declining health and faculties, she considered herself blessed and never complained. Myrt will be missed. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to First Baptist Church Avondale Estates, 47 Covington Hwy, Avondale Estates, GA 30002. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, November 19, 2016 at 11:00 am at A. S. Turner & Sons, with internment at Jenkinsburg United Methodist City Cemetery at Jenkinsburg GA, 30234.
