A loving Wife to her late husband Sheldon Hitchcock, cherished mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and cousin. Myritta was an excellent cook and her homemade treats were enjoyed by all. She could hem a pair of pants or sew beautiful curtains at a moments notice. Spending time with family was important to her. She enjoyed getting together with her sister’s and brother for a game or two of cards, or just to visit. She lived the largest part of her life in Ortonville with her husband and children, and loved and cared for her home.
