Myra continued her account by saying, “I took the books in 1930 and have worked with them for twenty years. At that time, we had nine hundred names with the work of them partly done. Today [1951] we have over 70,000 names with work done and have gotten 200,000 names on other people’s lines. I have been sealed in the temple for 18,000 couples (as of 1951). What a glorious congregation to meet when we leave this life.” [Her service went beyond that biographical sketch and she worked with the books for twenty-nine years, until her death in 1959.]
