Myrna, along with her siblings, Glenna and Kenneth, were raised in the Texas, Wright, and Greene county areas of Missouri. She attended Mtn. Grove School through the tenth grade then later obtained her GED.
She was united in marriage to Hubert Walter Darter on March 3, 1957 and to this union three children were born: Tod Anthony, Myrna Sue and Walter Leo. For twenty-three years, Myrna traveled around the world alongside her husband as he served in the Navy. During this time, they lived in 28 different homes from coast to coast and even internationally for five years in Italy. In 1979, the family made their final move and settled into a home just outside of Cabool, Missouri.
Myrna came to know the Lord at an early age and served Him faithfully during her lifetime. She also joined her husband in the ministry as they served the congregations of Clear Springs, Mt. Pisgah, Faith and Hope, and Ellis Prairie. For the past few years, she worshipped at Cabool Second Baptist Church.
She had several occupations over the years ranging from bank teller to accountant for the family trucking business. Her most cherished role, though, was that of wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. When she had spare time, she enjoyed cooking, reading, and doing jigsaw puzzles. She would also sew or crochet handmade items for family and friends.
Myrna was preceded in death by her parents, Ernest Todd, Marie (Todd) Alsup and Leo Alsup; grandson, Dusty Joe Strong; brother, Kenneth Todd; and a nephew, Jerry Todd.
She is survived by her loving husband, Hubert Darter of the home; two sons, Tod Darter and wife Kathy and Walter Darter and wife Jodi; one daughter, Myrna Sue McClellan and husband Bruce; one sister, Glenna Postlewait and husband Gene; seven grandchildren, Robert Nesbit, Tangela Broos, Sarah Darter, Elizabeth “Libby” Wilson, Katrina Czybrinski, Emily Darter and Heather Vaughn; and seven great-grandchildren, Quinton, Atalee, Dusty, Emma, Mark, Julie and Jayden. She will be dearly missed by all those who knew and loved her.
