Robert Dean Martinsen and Myra met in Grant and upon his return from military service were married July 23, 1947. Robert and Myra lived in several communities throughout Southeastern Idaho spending 32 years in the Moreland area.
Robert and Myra were sealed in the Idaho Falls Temple in 1955. Mom believed that it was this event that allowed them, after 9 years, to have children. Kevin joined the family in 1956, Janae in 1958, and Denise in 1964. Her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren were the joy of her life.
Myra had many interests, cooking, candy making, sewing, reading, tole-painting, and quilting. She was an avid fisherman and usually caught the most fish. Myra was a spectacular dancer and loved to dance with her father-in-law, Frank Martinsen.
