She is also survived by 15 nieces and nephews along with extended family and dear friends. She was preceded in death by her sister llliah Thomas of Cattin/Fairmount, Illinois and brothers John Smith of Troy, Ohio and Noel Smith of Piqua, Ohio.
Myrna graduated from Covington High School with the class of 1957.
Myrna dedicated her life to God and was baptized as one of Jehovah's Witnesses on December 25, 1953. Because of her appreciation of what she learned in the Bible, and her love of God and people, Myrna devoted her life to evangelizing. She spent over 60 years as a pioneer/special pioneer (full time evangelizer of Jehovah's Witnesses). Her ministry took her to Oxford and Findlay, Ohio, Washington, Loogootee and Tell City, Indiana, Henderson, Kentucky, Moore, Oklahoma, and Sommerville, Georgia. She was known for her ability to help people enrich their lives through Bible education.
Myrna taught and passionately believed that God's Kingdom, that Jesus taught us to pray for, (Matthew 6:9,10) will solve mankind's problems here on earth (Dan. 2:44). She also believed in Jesus* words that in the future people who have died will be resurrected to life again (John 5:28,29; Acts 24:15) here on earth. We look forward to that time when we can welcome her back.
She enjoyed traveling, flower gardening, her cats and dogs, and shopping for bargains. Myrna will be fondly remembered by life-long friends and family for her love of the Bible, her quick wit and sense of humor, and her good taste.
