Those who knew Elmyra will recall her fondness for bright colors ( including color coordinating her earbuds with her outfit), her love of good cupcakes and brownies, and her devotion to caffeine. Myra was a bright, generous and loving person. She lived her life to the fullest and tried to find the good in everyone and everything. One of eight children, Myra loved family above all else. She earned two masters degrees, focusing on urban issues such as city planning and public transportation. Football season was one of her favorite times of the year, especially when she could watch the Georgia Bulldogs (GO DAWGS!) or New Orleans Saints (WHO DAT!). Christmas, always spent at home with family, and her birthday were her favorite holidays! She never met a stranger and was a great friend to many. Myra often gave to the homeless (a dollar just for one of them was usually tucked in a pocket), victims of domestic violence, and rape crisis centers. A book to read and music to listen to were her companions as she went from place to place in her beloved New York City. Always smiling, Myra danced and laughed every day and truly could brighten up a room just by entering.
