Myra is preceded in death by her parents, Floyd and Cordelia Goodman Burress, sister, Jeanette Stewart, and brothers, Ralph Burress and Steve Burris. Myra was a strong Christian woman that lived her life as her testimony each day. She had a green thumb and loved spending time tending to her flowers, especially her roses. Myra loved her family deeply, especially her 5 grandchildren and had a special bond with each one. She loved shopping and pedicures with her granddaughters, playing cards and even making slime with her grandsons. Myra loved the holidays, especially Christmas and Easter. She was an amazing cook, thoughtful giver, and never wanted anyone to leave her house hungry. Myra made hundreds of chocolate cookies that became one of her trademarks over the years. Most of all, she loved with all of her heart, she laughed often, and found joy in every day of her life. She was an amazing wife, incredible mom, and phenomenal nannie.
