Myrle Low was born May 24, 1916 in Paris, Idaho to Morris David Low and Beatrice Lenore Gardiner. She died February 28, 2013. Myrle lived most of her life in Salt Lake City, Utah. She graduated from the University of Utah and served in the United States Navy during World War II in Washington, D.C. Myrle was an administrator at the University of Utah for many years, overseeing the summer school and the Japanese exchange student program. She also worked for a short time at the University of California at Berkeley. Myrle served on the LDS Young Women General Board on the music committee. Her love of music led to her association with the Utah Oratorio Society, where she served as president, and to her playing the piano and organ for many events. She also served as the Salt Lake County Republican Party Legislative District chairman. In her later years she became an Avon representative and a docent at the LDS Museum of Church History.
Myrle is survived by her nieces Laura Dene Low Card, Christie Ann Christensen Paris, Karen Low Spence, and Christine Susan Low Andrews; her nephew David Morris Low; and her sisters-in-law Chloe Bertelsen Low, and Mona Low; and several great-nieces and nephews. Myrle is preceded in death by her brothers Gordon Morris Low, David Stewart Low, and Howard Low, her parents Morris David Low and Beatrice Lenore Gardiner Low, and her step-mother Myrtle Hoff Pendry Low.
