Myra Sue Robbins was born on June 6, 1952, in Cincinnati, Ohio to William Alton Robbins and Clydie Robbins. It quickly became clear that even from a young age, Myra was incredibly strong and fiercely independent; traits that she would carry with her throughout her life. This resiliency was highlighted through her many accomplishments including graduating from high school at the age of 18 and college with an Associate of Arts degree at the age of 42. After successfully obtaining her commercial real estate license, she worked her way from an executive assistant all the way to a Property Manager and Leasing Agent.
In addition to her amazing accomplishments, Myra’s true pride and joy came from being a single mother to her son, Ryan. As a mother, she provided unconditional love and care, while also instilling in her son a clear and strong foundation in Christ. Many who have known Myra, praised her deep connection to and genuine love for Christ, which she always shared with those around her. As an extension of this, Myra possessed an uncanny ability to build community by developing lifelong friendships everywhere she went. She was both a warrior and light to those around her as she provided never-ending smiles and laughter, while also imparting her wisdom and support to anyone in need.
Myra’s last days were consistent with the pattern of her life in which she showed tremendous strength, grit, and composure. She felt peace and no pain as she passed in her sleep on Monday, October 3, 2022 in Houston, Texas at the age of 70 after a courageous battle with lung cancer. She is preceded by her parents William Alton Robbins and Clydie Robbins, her brother James Alton Shepherd, and her sister Diana Jane McCurdy. Myra is survived by her son, Ryan Robbins, her sister, Joy Thompson, and many nieces and nephews, who she loved dearly.
A celebration of life service will be held at 3:30pm on November 11th at The Foundry Church located at 8350 Jones Rd, Houston, TX 77065. Flowers can be sent to this address on Thursday, November 10th, in the afternoon or Friday, November 11th, before noon. In addition to the flowers, all are invited to make a contribution to MD Anderson Cancer Center in memory of Myra.
