"YOU WILL ALWAYS BE IN OUR HEARTS"

Myra J. Thompson entered into rest on March 22, 2021, surrounded by family. She was 79 years old. Myra was born in Southern California but spent the majority of her life in San Jose. She loved her cousins, aunts, uncles--she was very close to family.

Myra was an Enrolled Agent (tax professional) since 1981 and sole proprietor of Thompson Tax Service for over 20 years. She was a member of the Mission Society of Enrolled Agents (MSEA), the California Society of Enrolled Agents (CSEA), and the National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA). At MSEA, Myra held roles as President-elect Education Chair, Membership Chair, and MSEA Director. She was CSEA Director, twice.

Myra started her tax career in the early 1980s, working for H&R Block in Santa Clara. From there, she worked as a Manager for United Tax Service (a subsidiary of 1st Nationwide Bank), managing seven bank branches from San Mateo to Los Banos. Her career then took her to KPMG, where she was a Senior Tax Analyst in the Expatriate Tax Group. She retired from Intel Corporation as a Senior Tax Analyst in the Expatriate Tax Group.

She was a world traveler. Myra valued her sobriety and was approaching 40 years of being in the AA program. Throughout the years, she made lifelong friends and helped others with their own journey, as a sponsor. Myra enjoyed golf, and played on a women's golf team at The Villages country club.

Myra is survived by her two of her three children, Timothy Aguilar, Monique Morales, and grandson Richard "pumpkin" Morales of San Jose. She is joined in eternity with her son, Richard Aguilar, who preceded her in death.

A visitation and memorial service will be April 15, 2021, at the Willow Glen Funeral Home.
