Myrtie helped raise her siblings, as her mother died young from bronco pneumonia complicated by measles. She also raised her sister Mildred's youngest daughter, Lorraine Henderson.
Each year she would camp somewhere in the west coast Mendocino mountains for the whole summer. All of us kids would make it up there for a couple weeks each summer. We loved it. Myrtie did this mostly by herself with little help from her husband Joe who was a rice farmer. She was quite a strong lady who being born in Covelo,Mendocino Co.Ca,had a great love for the mountains.
Myrtie & Joe lived in Maxwell,Colusa Co CA. All of us would attend the Maxwell Rodeo every year. Those were good times.
Myrtie is buried in the Covelo Cemetery,Mendocino Co. California. (Valley View Cemetery).
She was 65yrs 7mo 16dys old at time of death.
She married Joseph Schragl and they had two sons Mervin and Donald. They raised Myrtie's nephew Vernon Conner.
