On June 25, 1949 she married Wayne "C" Myrick.

In 1962 they moved Fairfield where she was very involved in children's activities. She discovered the potters' wheel and became an accomplished artist and teacher which led to her opening The Good Earth Ceramics which she grew into a very successful business.

In 1987 they sold “the shop” and moved to Acampo where they created Papa's Pumpkin Patch. She continued to teach seminars for the major ceramic manufacturers. She was a Past President and dedicated Rotarian; she was an active and long-time member of the Methodist church; and was a die hard Raiders fan. Most of all she was a kind, funny, wonderful, loving wife, Mom, Grandma, Greatgrandma and friend.

She worked for the State of California at the Mount Whitney Fish Hatchery and later for California Parks, Pesticides, and the State Printing Plant.

She was preceded in death by two of her daughters Chandra Peterson and Kara Myrick and her daughter-in-law Carole Myrick. She is survived by her husband Wayne "C" Myrick, daughters Karla Fillion and Patricia (Warren Smith) Myrick, sons John (Andrea) Myrick and Wayne EJ (Angie) Myrick
