David and I have so many fond memories of Myrtle and Earl at their Canadian retirement cottage. We miss them very much as they were usually the only other couple on the lake when we were there. Now when we sit on the dock and reminisce of the great meals we had together and the playing of cards. So many great memories of the both of them. we refer to Myrtle as the Dowager Empress of O'Sullivan Lake. A great friend and a willing participant in Fish Derbies, etc. Earl and family you are in our thoughts, sorry we can't make it tomorrow but David is under the weather. Your mother was a great role model for the rest us, a woman who was willing to try most things.... no matter how unusual. David and Krys

My condolences to you and your family. Myrtle was part of my life for 20+ years. I fondly remember the many visits and meals we shared together when they would spend the summers up at O'Sullivan Lake. I always enjoyed listening to her stories and can still picture her getting ready to get into a tale and setting the scene. I will carry her memory with me of a strong and determined woman.

I have such great memories of Myrtly! Many hours spent in a house that welcomed everyone. Vivid memories of the smell of homemade baked goods and home cooked meals. Myrtyl contributed greatly to my wonderful childhood memoriea. I could go on forever about the hunting, horses, and love for adventure that she lived. Our condolences to Keith, Earl, and the entire family.
