In memory of
Betty (Ballard) Myrtue
Betty Ballard Myrtue of Kenner passed away on March 22, 2020 due to complications from gastric cancer. She was 84 years old. Betty was born in Guntersville, Alabama and grew up in Collierville, Tennessee. She graduated from Collierville High School and Memphis State University, receiving a Bachelor's degree in Education. She taught in the Memphis public school system, focusing primarily in music and band. At one time, Betty could play over a dozen musical instruments. Betty married Russ Myrtue on October 17, 1964 in Memphis, Tennessee and they moved to Kenner in 1967. Russ and Betty owned and operated Kenner Dental Specialties for 25 years before retiring in 2005. She greatly enjoyed working in her yard and attending regular morning outings with Russ and their friends drinking coffee at Starbucks. She also embraced technology and loved keeping up with her family and friends on Facebook. Many good times were had by Russ and Betty over the years as they visited their favorite places along the Mississippi Gulf Coast and beyond. Betty is survived by her son Mark and wife Lisa of Covington and their children Matthew and Olivia; her daughter Andrea and husband Mike of Olympia, Washington and their child Meredith; and her brother Donald (Lynda). She was preceded in death by her husband Russ, her brother Robert and her parents Maury and Ruth. In keeping with her final wishes, there will be no funeral services. The family would like to express special thanks and gratitude to Dr. Ryan Griffin and the nurses in the Oncology Department at Ochsner Medical Center in Kenner as well as to the team at Compassus Hospice for their caring attentiveness to her needs.
