I will never forget this precious lady. We laughed , fussed and sickness. She was a delight and made my days happy and fulfilled. She will be missed but never forgotten. I’ll always remember her advice she gave to me. You were the best friend to me. God speed my friend. I really loved you
Myrtiemae was a beautiful person. She had a strong work ethic & she was a special family member at Virginia Tax. I will never forget her. She loved her son Norman with all her heart. She was so proud of him. She loved & respected her daughter in law Mary Margaret. She was so proud of her 2 granddaughters Candace & Emily. She would come to work telling us all about them when she saw them & you could hear the love in her voice for these precious girls. She loved her friend Marilyn too & spoke highly of her. You will be missed Myrtiemae!
Myrtiemae was truly a special person that was always kind and had a smile that could brighten up a room. As a fellow co-worker I always enjoyed my time with Myrtiemae and appreciate the spirit and energy she brought to TAX. My condolences to the family and she will truly be missed.
Rest in peace my friend,
Myrtiemae was such a wonderful, blessed and special person. It was truly a blessing to work with her at TAX. I would look forward to seeing her. We would talk about family and the goodness of the Lord. Both in whom she loved so much. She will be missed. To the family- May the peace of God that surpasses all understand keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
I know you are rejoicing in heaven my friend.
Myrtiemae was missed when she retired from Tax, but we still remembered her. Sorry to hear that she is gone, but we know she is experiencing another life elsewhere. Such a hardworking person and very detailed. She will always be remembered.
To the family, I pray that you have strength through this time in you life.
Our father Willis Whiteside’s baby sister, will be greatly missed and remembered for her beautiful kindness. Regretfully, we will be unable to travel to the service. With our love, Willis, Debbie & Melody
