Condolence & Memory Journal

It was nothing shy of a pleasure to engage and care for Myra. Even in just a short time she became a part of the team and our hearts. It is with sorrow we parted ways, but happy to know she might be again, herself without any pain or trouble. From the team of CareOne at concord; as blessed we are to be mentioned, it is us that thank you for the privilege. Sending all of our best wishes and deepest condolences.

Myra was always lovely to me. She was a steadfast member of St. Peter's. I am saddened to hear of her passing. May she rest in peace.

Myra participated in a weekly Bible study at Concord Park in Concord, Massachusetts over a period of five years (from 2016-2020) and was a blessing to us as she joined us in singing and it talking about the Bible. She enjoyed reading it aloud with us. My colleague from New Life Community Church, Bob Fardy, and I, always thought it was a pleasure to see her, and that she was a welcoming presence. --Paul Cooke

Myra was an inspiration to all of us at HUCTW from the moment she became active, which was very early in our unionizing effort before our 1988 election. Of course, once the union was established Myra was a union leader who participated in negotiations, union meetings, organizing, envelope stuffing, and numerous demonstrations and rallies. We made a lot of important changes for workers at Harvard and had a lot of fun. If I'm remembering correctly, one of the last demonstrations Myra participated in was during contract negotiations in 2012. We asked several retired HUCTW members to join us for a "rocking for a contract" action. Myra and several other retirees sat in rocking chairs in front of Massachusetts Hall, while the rest of us walked or sang or held signs to demonstrate our issues. Myra really knew how to make work fun and I loved working with her. Marie Manna
