She was last seen in the final of season 16 May of the show.

Myrtle has recently been re-hired as assistant to manager Amy, played by America Ferrera, after a resignation in season 3 and a subsequent comeback as a customer greetings log.

The series returned on Thursday for the fifth season, but Porter had not filmed episodes of season 5 before her death.

Porter will probably be honored for her work with a tribute to the show next week.
