To this union, four children were born: Ruth, Edith, Jean and Warren.
As the children grew, the family moved into Murdo so they could attend school.
Myrtle ran the local café and Alex was the deputy sheriff and operated the bar.
For many years, Myrtle also worked at the Lyman County Highway Department Office as a clerk. In her spare time, she loved to quilt and do art painting.
