Donna Evelyn Bright Myatt, 85, passed away on Sunday, May 17, 2020 at North Mississippi Medical Center—Gilmore in Amory. “Dynamite,” as she was lovingly known in the community, was born on September 20, 1934 in Monroe County to Byron Russell Bright and Madonna Reece Ashcraft. A lifelong resident of Becker, she attended Becker School and later reared four children from her marriage to Edgar Hobert Camp. She later married P.C. Myatt. Prior to her retirement, she worked as a dietary assistant at Gilmore Memorial Hospital and was the owner/operator of Amory BBQ. One of her favorite activities was painting. Preferring oil painting, she was quick to tune-in to “The Joy of Painting” with Bob Ross and she also enjoyed camping and fishing. She could often be found enjoying a good cup of coffee while watching the Hallmark Channel or Unity Broadcasting, TV 39. A lady with great faith, she was a member of Calvary Baptist Church and she loved to study her Bible. To expand her artistic capabilities, she was an exceptional cake decorator and could sew anything. Above all else, she was an excellent cook her joy was made complete when she could have Sunday lunch and get together with her family. She lived life for her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren.
