Myrna was a resident of Grand Cane, Louisiana and worked as Supervisor at the Mansfield Sewing and Garment Factory for many years. Myrna loved being outside and enjoyed doing tasks such as mowing the yard, planting flowers, tending to the gardens, working in the flowerbeds, burning brush piles, and other yard work.
