Only a week after her birth, her father William passed away and her mother married Raymond Burmeister, who helped to raise Myrtle throughout her life. Myrtle graduated from Shiocton High School in 1957, and on August 29, 1959 was united in marriage to Louis Kutchenriter at Christus Lutheran Church in Clintonville. The couple remained members at Christus, where Myrtle was active with the Worship Committee, Altar Guild, helped with money counting, quilting, communion serving, and also volunteered with the C.L.C.W.

She was also active in her community with the Waupaca County Homemakers for over 50 years, volunteering with 4-H for 48 years, Meals on Wheels, and Ruby’s Pantry. Myrtle and Louis enjoyed traveling with “Have Group Will Travel” and attending shows at the Fireside Theater in Fort Atkinson. Myrtle enjoyed all arts and crafts; especially basket weaving, quilting, sewing, knitting, and crocheting. She was always on the go, but is now home with her Lord and husband Louis.
