Myrtle Campbell Robertson, 82, passed away July 8, 2018 in Cedar City, Utah. She was born August 6, 1935 in Hatch, Utah to Cloyd Delton Campbell and Omega Riggs. Being the oldest of eight children gave her many responsibilities in her youth, kind of a second mom. She grew up in Hatch and graduated high school in Panguitch. She married Lawrence Bruce Woodard. They had four children; Steven Wendell, Patricia Jean, Robert Zane and Thad Douglas. Later divorced, she married Phillip Maurice Robertson. They had two children; Isaac Leroy and Sandra Collette. After living in several towns around Southern Utah they made their home in Cedar City.
Myrtle enjoyed reading and sewing. She was an excellent seamstress. She could look at a picture of a dress and make it without a pattern. She worked at Coleman for many years, then Cornet until it closed.
She was a faithful member of the LDS Church, serving in many callings throughout her life. The last one was librarian and program maker for over 30 years. After Phil’s death in 1993, they were sealed for time and all eternity in the St. George Temple.
Her quick wit and one-liners made everyone smile, “Everyone loves Myrtle.” She is finally at peace. She will be missed by all.
She is survived by six sisters and a brother; LaRue Holt, Yvonne Wilson and Konny Emery of St George, Nelda Fagg of Las Vegas, Delton R. Campbell of Taylorsville, LeAnne Campbell of Salt Lake City, and Ronda Webb of Cashmere, WA.; children Robert (Raina) Robertson and Sandra Woodard of Cedar City, Thad Robertson of Gunnison, 22 grandchildren and 56 great grandchildren. Myrtle was preceded in death by her parents, husband, three children, four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
The family would like to express their heartfelt thanks to the members of her ward, for the many things they have done for “mom” over the years.
