She was the widow of John R. ''Bobby'' Farley, a homemaker and a lifetime member of Oak Grove Assembly of God Church of Monticello. Mrs. Myrtle was a devout Christian and a gifted seamstress. You could give her a sewing machine and material and she could make anything. She was an avid reader and a huge Arkansas Razorback basketball fan.

In addition to her husband and parents, she was also preceded in death by a son, Donnie Farley; a grandson, Michael W. Hair; brothers, Leo and Otis (Hot) Kellum; and a brother-in-law, James Young.
