Myrtie Lean Carson, daughter of the late Paul and Edna Reese Myrick, was born on Tuesday, February 4, 1936 in Southampton County, Virginia. She was educated in the Southampton County school system.
Myrtie was an active member of the Pleasant Grove Baptist Church, Drewryville, Virginia, until her health failed. After which, she continued to fellowship by phone, with her church family and others. She loved attending Sunday School and serving the Missionary Ministry.
Early in her life, Myrtie united in Holy Matrimony with Percy T. Carson, who preceded her in death. They were blessed with seven children. Two sons preceded them in death: Lyndon and Bernard Carson.
Myrtie’s qualities of hard work, fear of God, respect she had for her husband, love for her children, foresight, encouragement, care for others, concern for the poor and love for her family, all led her to a life of enjoyment, honor and worth. She loved unconditionally and was the epitome of “A Virtuous Woman.” Her love was not limited to just family, but it was shared throughout the community and abroad. Because of her commitment and passion, she was known by many throughout the community as “Momma” or “Grandma”. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
On Thursday, January 13, 2022; while at Southside Regional Medical Center, Petersburg, Virginia, our dear mother and grandmother, answered our Heavenly Father’s call from earthly labor unto sweet eternal rest.
