At the age of 12, Myrte felt God was calling her into ministry, and following her mother’s words of wisdom, “You’d better do it.” Myrte did just that. She worked in many churches throughout her life with a focus on serving youth. She graduated from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (Fort Worth, TX), and in 1970 she joined The Baptist Sunday School Board (Nashville, TN). She was instrumental in developing a curriculum that helped churches further engage and help youth grow in their spiritual journey. She traveled five continents and spent her entire life sharing God’s love with others, leading by example in loving all people and mentoring/teaching others.

Myrte’s memorial service will be held at Williamson Memorial Funeral Home in Franklin, TN on Sunday, April 21st with visitation at 3:00 p.m. and the memorial service at 4:00. In lieu of flowers, please send your donations to the following organizations or your favorite charity:
