My sincerest sympathy to Myrtle's dear family. She spoke so lovingly of her visits to her family. I know Myrtle from our exercise classes. I especially enjoyed yoga where we had many wonderful conversations. She was such a kind and intelligent person and a joy to know. We will all miss her. Godspeed and Peace to a very special friend.

To all of Myrtle's loved ones, my deepest condolences. I knew Myrtle from our work days at Silver Burdett and in more recent years as a warm, knowledgeable, optimistic friend. I was fortunate to be part of a SB "alumni" lunch group with Myrtle. Not as formal as it sounds, as Myrtle never stood on ceremony and was always kind, funny, and curious about everyone's life and adventures. I will miss her as we continue our journey without her.

My sincere condolences to Myrtle's family and friends. She spoke often, and lovingly, about her nieces and great-nieces. . . . I feel so lucky that, long after our days of working together at SBG in Morristown, I got to know Myrtle as a friend, as one of the "ladies who lunch" (and laugh). I don't think I will ever eat a crabcake again without thinking of her! . . . In addition to possessing intelligence and a curiosity about the world, Myrtle was unfailingly kind and caring; when someone needed help, she was there, no questions asked. . . . I will miss her, but I know she will be with us in spirit.

Myrtle and I had been friends for more than 30years. We shared each others good times and hard times. Myrtle was one of the kindest, unselfish people I've known.She was so proud of her nieces and loved being together with them and their families. Myrtle, you will be missed but I will remember the good times we had together.I will celebrate your life. Rest in peace.

To Myrtle's family and friends,

Those of us who had the honor of knowing and working with Myrtle are truly saddened by her passing, After Myrtle's many years of service to social studies publishing, she followed up with helping to manage large projects in religious education and in music. Those of us in the music department found that her skills and experience in publishing other disciplines had great value for music programs, too. Myrtle always brought clear and logical thinking to our project and to our staff, even when those qualities were in short supply among the rest of us. Her quiet style, intelligence, and understanding helped us all. I am grateful for the opportunity to know and work with her.

Myrtle often spoke of her family, especially of her brother and nieces. You all were so important to her, and we enjoyed hearing about you, too. I know you will miss her dearly, I'm glad she was a part of my life, too.
