Myrtle D. Grulke Van Horn, age 81, of Neillsville, passed away on Thursday, Aug. 19, 2021, at Evansville Manor. She was born on Oct. 22, 1939, in Lebanon, the daughter of Leonard and Dorothy (Lutz) Grulke.

Myrtle was a dedicated wife and mother. She was an avid reader and enjoyed her daily jig-saw puzzle. Myrtle was very involved at St John’s Lutheran Church in Christie, Wis. She loved to bake, especially when she got to deliver cookies to the Neillsville Police Department.
