Obituary for Myrtlegene Blackmer

Myrtlegene Blackmer, age 94, of Remus, Michigan passed away Saturday, March 30, at the Isabella County Medical Care Facility of Mt. Pleasant. Myrtlegene was born on January 20, 1925 in Barryton, Michigan, the daughter of William and Myrtle (Tinker) Drew.
Myrtlegene was a lifelong resident of the area. On June 24, 1944, Myrtlegene married Hugh Blackmer Jr. in Alma, Michigan. She worked at her husband’s side on their dairy farm and also worked at Ferro Manufacturing. Myrtlegene was a faithful servant of the Lord.
