I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I worked with Myra at Jackson Middle School and often ate lunch with her in the library. She always spoke fondly of her family. I pray she is at peace. I will remember her riding her bike, taking nature walks, and enjoying long, adventurous drives. Sending love to you all. ❤️ Ellen Harmon

To Myra Jager's family
I am sorry to hear of your loss. You and all of your family arae in my thoughts and prayers. When Myra lived in Oskaloosa, Iowa we went to the same church and were in the same Sunday School class. We were also in Junior High and High School or whenever they moved out of Oskaloosa. I have fond memories of Myra.
