Myrtle Ivy Hooper was born on 9 Sept 1886 in Montgomery County, Kansas, the first child of David K. Hooper and Cirrilda Ann Clifford.1

Myrtle was not given a middle name at birth. When she was a young girl, her mother let her select her own. A popular folk song at the time, “Kitty Wells,” contains a line “the myrtle and the ivy were in bloom,” so she selected Ivy for her middle name.2

Aside from having her eye put out in accident with scissors dropped by a sibling and a bout with pneumonia when was 12, Myrtle’s childhood was pleasant.3 She attended Caney, Kansas schools, helped her mother, Cirrilda, with the younger children, and helped her father on the family farm.4

When Myrtle’s mother, Cirrilda, died in 1904, Myrtle was 17 and her siblings ranged in age from 6 months to 15 years.5 Myrtle assisted her father with raising the children. She considered Doyle, the baby, to be like her son and, at the point of her fathers death, became Doyle’s guardian. Myrtle kept a photo of her mother and one of Doyle on her dresser throughout her life.6

As a young woman, Myrtle also enjoyed spending time visiting her friends and family.7

We three: Eleanor, Grandma, and me

A personal remembrance from the author…

This photo, captioned by my mother, Evelyn Phillis Faulkner, was so appropriately titled. I spent a vast amount of my childhood with Grandma and my aunt, Eleanor, sometimes staying at Eleanor’s house for up to a month at a time.

The three of us went on countless trips, near and far, shopped, worked puzzles, went to restaurants, cooked, tended to the family graves, fished, and had a wonderful time together.

Grandma made amazing apple pies, loved pretty handkerchiefs, liked “eating out” and traveling, and was a wonderful storyteller.

Eleanor worked the evening shift at the ammunition plant in Parsons, and Grandma didn’t particularly like television, so she’d tell me stories in the evenings of her early life growing up in Caney, about her mother, Cirrilda, who died so young, and of her little brother she raised, Doyle, who died at the age of 28.
