The joys and heartbreak of farm living were always present. An "aunt" in every sense of the word. One of the "four queens." God bless you Myrt! Keith Lewis- Nephew

I just loved Myrt. From the first time I met her we just seemed to hit it off. She always had a hug and a great smile. We hosted the Holm reuion a couple times and I remember Myrt always loved bullhead feeds. When she couldn't make it over I would send a to go box with someone for her. She will be missed by many. My sincerest sympathy to the family,
Denny Kronke

Marilyn just had the “cool factor”.
The family reunions and visits to the farm are great memories, I’ll never forget those days.
When you talked to Marilyn you left feeling better, wiser and with a better outlook.
I going to miss her.
I love you Marilyn.
