Myrt worked at Carnation Instant Co. in Oconomowoc for several years and later, along with her husband, owned and operated Elmo and Myrt’s Tavern in Watertown until her retirement. She then loved babysitting her Laura “Love” for 10 years.
She enjoyed playing Bingo, going to the casino, baking her famous cookies, but most of all spending time with her family. Myrt also liked sending cards and letters to out of town family and friends.
She was a member of First Congregational United Church of Christ in Watertown.

She was the last member of her immediate family.
She was further preceded in death by her parents, two brothers, Alfred (Marie) Hoof, Wilmer “Wimpy” Hoof, and a sister Beverly in infancy.
The family would like to thank Barb Butler and the staff of Marquardt Hospice for the wonderful and compassionate care they provided to Myrt and her family.
