The passing of Myrtle Anne Bennett Oakes: a woman with spirit and determination –


My dear friends The Oppermans have just lost a beloved member of the family. Myrtle Anne Bennett Oakes (Hilary’s grandmother, Nory’s Mother) has been a part of the family for many years. A story that has stayed with me is when Myrtle traveled the United States – hard of hearing, sleeping out of her car – meeting people and creating memories along the way. A woman with such great spirit and determination, lived longer than expected. An inspiration to all, she will be missed.
