Myrtle lived to be 102 years old. She spent her childhood through high school years in West Covina. Her father died when she was only 7 years old. She dropped out of Covina High School after 3 years to work as a telephone operator in La Puente. She married Lee T. Bashore in 1920. They had two sons, Lee and GlennThey lived in Pomona until 1927 whereupon they moved to Glendora. They bought a 10-acre orange/lemon grove and lived in an old pioneer home at 250 N. Live Oak. Her husband, a representative in the California State Legislature and longtime Pacific Electric railroad conductor, died unexpectedly in 1944. She loved sports and was a longtime member of the Pomona YMCA and was a former player on the Glendora girls softball team. During World War II, she volunteered for the Red Cross and was an air raid warden. She sold the grove to subdividers and used most of the proceeds to build a home just north of the old home. A series of health setbacks forced her to sell her home. She lived for a number of years with her sister, Hazel, in Carlsbad, California. She spent her later years in various retirement homes and care centers. Her children and grandchildren brought her great happiness.
