Betty and Mary,
Mama Cil just told me about Myra's passing. I am so sorry! She was a second grandmother to me and I am heartbroken, I know how difficult this is for you. I feel confident that my mom met Myra as soon as she passed and has taken her under her wing. If there is anything I can do for you, please don't hesitate to contact me. You are in my prayers.

I was too young to have called her "Mrs. Waldroop" - to me she was always just Granny Myra, even though you have to go back 4 or 5 generations before we had someone in common. Sometimes she would let me play her piano when I took lessons from Mary. She was a always such a sweet, smart lady, smiling and patient - but that no-nonsense teacher was never too far away! We're all lucky to have known her, and I wish all the family peace and love in knowing how much she meant to our community.

Our thoughts and prayers for Mary, Betty and the whole family.
I didn't have Mrs. Waldroop as a teacher, but have been intertwined with her family for years. She was a great woman because she raised a great family from her daughters, to her grandsons, to her great grandchildren.
The sign of a successful person is the legacy they leave. The Waldroop family of Myra Waldroop is a fine family, thus a fine legacy she leaves.

Betty and Mary, I was so saddened to hear about Myra's passing. I have sooooo many wonderful memories of all of you, and Myra always welcoming me along. Church at Mt Zion, Mary playing with me at Granny Setser's, me at your house, going to Rainbow Springs, Lee and Harold aggravating the dickens out of us, and Myra hollering at them to leave us alone. Yes, very good times!!
Myra was my teacher too and it was so hard for me to call her Mrs. Waldroop when I had always known her as Myra, happy, always smiling Myra.
She will be missed by so many. You girls and your families are in my thoughts and prayers. Much love, Pam Setser Hanak
