After retiring and her husband Henry passed, she sold their Sappington, Mo. home and built a lakeside home in Hillsboro in the Raintree Plantation development. Her sister, Marion, and brother-in-law, Joe, lived next door and they got together almost daily. Until her physical health deteriorated she was active and frequently got together with family. After her daughter, Toni Albrecht retired, she came to live with her and take care of her as her physical health deteriorated. Her daughter and son, Jerry, selected Delmar Gardens as the nursing home where Myrtle resided for the remainder of her life. She was a breast cancer survivor. She, her husband, sister, and sister’s husband, enjoyed cruising together before Henry, died. She is survived by her son, her two granddaughters, Susan and Karen, four of her great-grandchildren and her sister-in-law Amelia Gnau.
