Mrs. Myrtle Lee Taylor Walker, age 74, passed away unexpectedly at her home on Friday, May 3, 2019. She was a daughter of the late Harvey Troxler and Nellie Jones Troxler and was born in Lenoir on October 7, 1944. She was a faithful member of the Marion Seventh-Day Adventist Church where she served her Lord as a Deaconess and a greeter but she further served cheerfully as a custodian of the church facility along with others in the church body. Her generous nature was exemplified by the self-sacrificing way she lived her life for others. Her giving benefitted not only her immediate family but many of her friends as well. She was a hard worker, whether providing delicious meals for her loved ones or tending to her homemaking and gardening, she did all of her chores with a joyful disposition. Myrtle Lee loved her family, friends and church family and she will be deeply missed.
