Myra was preceded in death by a another brother, Roger Williams.

For many years and until just recently, she “babysat” and watched  children in her own home, caring for them as her own.

During her lifetime she had many dogs, “too many to mention”.

Myra was a member of Life Gate Church.

The family would like to thank Dee Leffert for many days and hours of companionship for Myra. She loved the hours they spent listening to “oldies”, especially those sung by Bobby Vinton.

The family also wishes to offer special thanks to Heart to Heart Hospice, especially Myra’s caregivers, Dr. Tonya Brown, Kayla Clem, and Baylie Miles.

Kroeger Funeral Home is in charge of all arrangements.

Memorial contributions may be made to Heart to Heart Hospice or Life Gate Church. Envelopes will be available at the funeral home.
