Ms. Myrtle died peacefully at Westminster Winter Park where she spent her last two months due to her declining health as a result of cancer.
She was known as the “Singing Housekeeper” at Winter Park Memorial Hospital where she was employed for twenty-two years.
As a born-again Christian she was well loved in the community and affectionately known by many that she witnessed the love of God to, as “The Jesus Woman.” She lived a simple life and was also known, as she put it, for her “giving out.”

She is survived by her children, Judith Hyatt, Jerome Hyatt and Karen Brown, four grandsons, three great grandchildren and by many loving nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews.
