Myrtis Mae (Tyler) Addison
September 15, 1917 – August 1, 2021
Arroyo Grande, California – Myrtis Addison passed away on Sunday the 1st where she eventually met her son David (Nancy) Addison, her daughter-in-law, Dr. Alice (Tony d.2009) Addison, her grandson Tyler (Alli Dana) Addison and her grandson Sean and his son Luke Addison lived. She is also survived by her son Michael (Donna) Addison of Oregon and daughter Kathleen Addison of Rohnert Park, California, her grandson Ryan (Darlene) Addison of Malibu, California, and five generations of the extended Tyler and Addison families in California, and Oregon in Washington state.
Myrtis has now joined her husband Tom Addison, her first son Tony Addison, her stepchild Bill Patterson, and her own brothers Al (Ruthie) Tyler, Vern (Jeanette) Tyler and Ed Tyler in Heaven, most recently Ed’s wife Julia Tyler of Southern California .
Myrtis “Sis” traveled a lot with her parents, attended eleven different schools in Southern California and married young. She and Tom raised four children (Tony, Mike, David, Kathleen). In her mid-year, Myrtis worked as a secretary for Cal State Northridge before she retired. She sewed most of her overalls and casual clothes herself, and sewed lots of curtains. She and Tom moved to Leisure Village in Camarillo in the late 1970s.
Myrtis was a caring mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-grandmother, a hard worker, had fun with the “Good Ol ‘Bags” (an informal group of ageless women) and was a fine dessert baker – especially ground beef and pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. She was active in her Baptist Choir and loved donating gifts to Samaritan’s Purse. She was an avid hiker and athlete and always seemed to be full of joie de vivre. She enjoyed camping in the trailer with her husband Tom and visiting her family whenever she could. She just made everyone she knew happy to be with her.
The family thanks the staff at the hospice and the Wyndham Residence for their final care and attention. Myrtis Mom was our family matriarch … the soul of our family, and we all miss her dearly.
Good memories and condolences can be sent to Addison Family, PO Box 96, Arroyo Grande, CA 93421 or. be passed on [email protected] .
The celebration of the lifetime achievements should take place at a later date. The Neptune Society of Santa Barbara has taken care of her final rest.
