myrtleann was a great neighbor to the Poland Library. She volunteered many times over the years. She was very well liked in the community. She was also an awesome nurse when she worked in the Poland doctor's office-she was my young son's favorite nurse.

Bobbie, Donnie and Mike I am so sorry for the lost of your mom
I only heard a little of what happened. I only hope she wasn't in to much pain.
I know how hard it is to loose your parents. It wasn't that long ago that you lost your dad. And now your mom it doesn't matter how old we are it still hurts like hell. Parents shouldn't have to die.
I am living here in Florida for the past 22 years and only go up north when I have to. I still have two sons in Watertown.
I will still be buried in Watertown with mom and dad behind my brother Billy lot. I have six graves.
Again so sorry for your loss.
