OBITUARY ~ MYRNA MAE (DRISKILL) KETTLE

Myrna Mae KETTLE, age 61 of Blockton, died Tuesday, July 13, 1999 at Greater Community Hospital in Creston.

Myrna was born October 25, 1937, in Weldon, Iowa, the daughter of Theodore Oracle DRISKILL and Opal Bertha KINDRED. Myrna grew up attending school in Leon, graduating in 1957. She then moved to Des Moines where she worked for Banker's Life. On August 23, 1959 she was united in marriage to Duane KETTLE at the Leon United Methodist Church.

Duane and Myrna lived in Massachusetts and California prior to settling in Blockton once Duane got out of the service. In 1965 Duane was killed in an accident leaving Myrna to raise their two sons, Robert and Allen. She loved supporting them in all of their activities, and had a special relationship with her daughter-in-law Dana. She enjoyed working outdoors, with a special fondness for gardening.

For over 30 years Myrna worked as the deputy treasurer for Taylor county and had enjoyed the many contacts she made throughout her years at the courthouse. She had been a long time member of the Blockton United Methodist Church until its closing, and had been active in the Republican Women and various bridge clubs.

Myrna recently retired after more than 30 years at the courthouse.

Myrna is survived by her two sons, Robert of Altoona and Allen and wife Dana of Shawnee, Kansas; her mother-in-law Marie KETTLE of Blockton; a sister Marilyn CLYMENS of Chattanooga, Tennessee; two nieces and three nephews.

Preceding her in death are her husband Duane in 1965; her parents, Oracle and Bertha; her father-in-law Byron KETTLE; and two sisters, Delores BURGESS and Ruth WATSON.

Funeral services were held Friday, July 16, 1999 at the Ritchie Funeral Home in Bedford with Pastor Scott MARCUM officiating.

Interment was in the Rosehill Cemetery, Blockton.

Memorials can be given in her name. Ritchie Funeral Home of Bedford made arrangements.
