Myda was an extremely dedicated and hard worker, she gave everything she had in every job she held and was an incredible example. She worked at the Tiara Cafe and the El Tonya Motel.

She loved this job, the people she worked with and worked for. It was like a second family to her.

Her biggest joy in life was her family. Myda was one of the most caring and giving people you could ever meet. She was always giving of herself, thinking of others and doing things for others. Almost never did she think of herself, she always put her family first. Whether it was cooking Thanksgiving dinner for her family and her siblings families, dancing a little jig with her sister at the family campout or hosting the biggest party ever for her grandkids, she was always there to make everyone laugh and have a good time. She truly was the life of the party.
