Myra worked as a caretaker. She enjoyed gardening, mushroom hunting and reading the BIBLE with husband/love of her life. Most of all, she loved being a grandma! Before a lengthy illness, it was not unusual to find her in the kitchen. We’d all agree that she was the best cook ever. Above all of this, her greatest desire was leading people to Jesus. (Romans 10:9-10)
A private family service will be held by Pastor Terry Robinson at a later date.
