Toy Mitchell Myers
Toy Mitchell Myers passed away Monday, February 24, 2020.
Graveside service is 12:30 p.m. Thursday, February 27, at Pickwick-McAdams Cemetery. Visitation is 10 a.m.-noon Thursday at Baum-Carlock-Bumgardner Funeral Home.
She was born in Graford, Texas, on February 12, 1928, the youngest of 15 children of Orestes and Celia (Nixon) Mitchell.
Toy was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother and her family meant everything to her. Toy was beloved by her siblings, nieces, nephews and cousins and enjoyed reminiscing about growing up in rural Texas and riding a horse to grammar school. Farm life wasn't easy in the 1930s but it helped make her the strong woman she was. As a student at Graford High School, Toy held a part-time position at Camp Wolters during World War II and met her future husband shortly thereafter. They married in 1947. In the 1950s, she and Maurice (Red) settled in Haltom City where she lived the rest of her life. Toy worked for the Texas Department of Public Safety for over 20 years before retiring.
Survivors include her children, Linda Myers Kuehn and husband, Ken, of Coppell, Texas, and Maurice W. Myers, of Paradise, Texas; grandson, Colton M. Myers, of Wylie, Texas; and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.
She is preceded in death by her late husband, Maurice W. Myers; and daughter, Frances Myers Ivy.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Pickwick-McAdams Cemetery, 573 Hilltop Road, Mineral Wells, TX 76067.
