I was saddened to hear of my great aunt Myrtle’s passing. My heart goes out to her loved ones and all are in my thoughts and prayers. I used to love spending time with great aunt Myrtle when I was younger. She was very spirited...and very loving toward me. She most definitely would speak her mind. I love this about her. She loved growing and tending to roses. But, she also loved many other varieties of flowers, too. She loved gardening and caring for flowers in general. Lena and Mary were the same way. All three sisters loved doing this. All of their houses were always so beautiful with different kinds of flowers growing outside their houses during spring and summer. Their brother, Harry, was always having my father work on his tractor, so he could tend the fields. Myrtle was my father, Jarvis Poore’s aunt. Jarvis was Lena Poore’s son, and Myrtle’s nephew. Lena was married to his father, Jim Poore. Jarvis was not Lena’s biological son. But, Lena raised him since he was a baby. He only knew Lena as a mother, and I (as well as my brother, Jimmy Poore) only knew Lena as a grandmother, and consider this family as my own. My father passed away on January 29, 2016. He loved his mom and aunts very much. I am happy knowing they are all together in heaven. I will see all of them again one day.

Such a dear lady. Have known her most of my life and grew up with her daughter, Lou. They lived just across the fence. When I lost my mother at age 14, Myrtle was always willing to help me and my Dad if we needed her. She was such a hard worker...in the garden, doing farm work, keeping house and loving her roses. She will be truly missed. Love you Myrtle. Lou, you and all the family are in my and Linda's prayers. We know it is such a great loss.
