While raising her children she attended Cambridge Business School and graduated the top of her class with all A’s, with a diploma in Medical Transcription. Throughout Myrtis’ life she had many moments that made her proud. One day she was on the evening news and was greeted by the Detroit Pistons. She also published her own poems, and had one published by a publishing company that can be found online. Myrtis loved fashion and did some modeling among many other things. Ultimately, she began a long career in business management. She managed a Hardees restaurant for many years before moving back to North Carolina to start a new job as a manager for KFC and K Mart.
