Myra loved to work in the yard and visit with neighbors until her long battle with Alzheimer's began. Mom loved cooking for her family and every dish was both enticing and delicious. Special occasions began with a discussion on what mom would make for us to savor. Mom's best times were spent with her family. She enjoyed many adventures just to be with her family, like being the official lobster counter down in the keys during mini season, roughing cold weather in Colorado, cruising, Holiday celebrations. We will all miss Mom.
Due to the rise in COVID cases a graveside service will be arranged with hopes of a celebration of life in the near future.
Donation to Alzheimer’s Organization can be made in her name.
