Myrtle Louise Flowers, age 77, passed away on Friday, May 21, 2021 at Ashley Place in Austintown, OH. She was born in Grafton, WV on April 3, 1944 to Walter and Myrtle (Springs) Walsh.
She liked to tell people that she was raised in Dogpatch, which is now known as Liberty Township. Later, she was a member of New Creations Fellowship in Niles, OH and enjoyed watching televangelist Jimmy Swaggart and listening to gospel, especially Bill Gaither's music. One of her favorite things to do was to swing on the front porch with her dog and loyal companion, Laura, while feeding the birds and listening to the wind chimes.
Myrtle leaves to cherish her memory her children, Keith (Holly) Walsh of Hubbard, Linda (Frankie) Martinez of Youngstown, and Della (the late Jose Jr.) Martinez of Youngstown; daughter-in-law, Robin (the late Russell Walsh) Patterson-Walsh of Youngstown; grandchildren Keith (Melissa) Walsh, Jr. of McDonald, Kevin (Tabitha) Walsh of Florida, Kyle (Gabryelle) Walsh of Steubenville, Caleb Walsh of Hubbard, Taylor (Chris) Vince of Girard, Abigail (Jeremiah) See of Warren, Jordyn Davidson of Hubbard, Michael Scoville of Hubbard, Kasina Flowers of Youngstown, Mariah (Adam Anderson) Flowers of Struthers, Kory (Jessica) Flowers of New Jersey; Antoinette, Julina, and Jose (the IV) Martinez, all of Youngstown; Russell Walsh, Jr. of Steubenville, Daniel Walsh of West Virginia, Cecelia Walsh of Youngstown, and Shane Walsh of Akron; 19 great-grandchildren; and brother, Charles "Chuck" (Debra) Walsh.
In addition to her parents, Myrtle was preceded in death by her husband, Leo E. Flowers; infant son, Leo E. Flowers Jr.; and siblings, Wesley Boyland, Roy Boyland, John Walsh, and Mary Moon.
Myrtle will be dearly missed by her family and the many friends that she made over the years. She was known for being a great helping hand and for always having a shoulder to lean on for anyone in need. To know her was truly to love her.
