On Saturday, April 4, 2015 our dear friend Juanita Myrick, 91, joined her beloved husband, John, in Heaven with a smile on her face.
She and John had been married for 73 years and five months. They raised five boys, of which four preceded her in death; Paul, Michael, Richard and Patrick. Kevin (the caboose) is now the sole survivor of the family.
Nita was very active on our Hill Top at the Molson Grange and Auxiliary. She worked one day a week at the Molson School House Museum and made many new friends from near and far.
She was known as “Mountain Ma Ma” as she cared for others as if she was their mother. Nita worked the Garage Sales, Pancake Breakfasts, and if there was phone calling to be done she was there to help. She was always ready with a fresh pot of applesauce.
A couple of her favorite sayings were, “The good Lord is not finished with me yet” and “Mothers are hard to raise these days.”
Death comes for us all. We will miss you our dear Mountain Ma Ma.
Celebration of Life for Nita Myrick will be on May 16, 2015 at the Molson Grange at 1 p.m. Dessert will be served.
