Myra Deane Dorety

September 30, 1937April 11, 2021

Myra Deane Dorety was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend.

She left this world after a courageous battle with cancer on April 11, 2021 at age 83.

She was born in the parlor of a small house in Moyers, Oklahoma, as the first of four children to Warren and Voicey Marie Matherly on September 30, 1937.

Her educational days were completed after graduating Marygrove High School in 1955 and Business School in 1957.

Myra was a life-long member of Beta Sigma Phi sorority. She was trusted with and had a knack for the planning and organizing of group trips, parties, and dinners the sisters enjoyed. She also took pleasure in many hours playing cards at the expert level with groups of friends. Her passion for Do-It-Yourself projects, reading, meeting new people and seeing new places in her travels was unsurpassed.

Myra Dorety is survived by her sister, Karen Marie Galloway; sons William Dean, Warren David; and daughters Deanna Lynne and Linda Marie. She was also the very proud grandmother of eight; great grandmother of four; and a very close Aunt to four dear nephews and nieces.

Brother Jerry Lynn Matherly and Sister Sandra Elaine Locke preceded Myra in passing.

I met Myra at Ledbetter Insurance Agency. She and I were both single and had fun going out after work for a few drinks and dancing. She was so much fun! I loved Myra's laugh and she definitely knew how to party! I haven't seen her years but recently caught up a little through Facebook. I was lucky and proud to have known her.
