Myrtis Ione (Hansen) Nash was born on August 29, 1929 in El Dorado, Arkansas to William Kinley and Callie Ivy (Bass) Hansen. Myrtis grew up in El Dorado and attended El Dorado schools. She later received her GED. Myrtis was united in marriage to Morris “Tiny” Nash on July 2, 1952 in Norphlet, Arkansas. They made their first home in El Dorado, Arkansas before moving to Shreveport, Louisiana. In 1956 the family moved to Pampa, Texas because of Tinys work. They moved to Woodward in 1962 and have lived here since that time. Myrtis was a house wife and mother to her children and she later worked for the Woodward County election Board at the grade school and hospital.

She was a long time member of the Bible Baptist Church and her church family was very important to her. She enjoyed doing her Bible study, working on crossword puzzles, fishing, crocheting, and teaching Sunday School. She was especially close to her family, especially her grandchildren, who she loved dearly. Serving God and her family were the center of her life.
