RYAN - Myra E. (nee Fleming)                             1935 - 2022


Of Lancaster, NY, April 30, 2022. Beloved mother of Zoe Ann, Kathleen (Scott) Grieble, James (Lisa), and Michael (Eileen); sister of Michael (Judy) Fleming; and grandmother of many. An exceptional athlete and talented golfer, Myra taught physical education and coached generations of students in the Lancaster Central School District and surrounding communities. Also referred to as "Mickey" or "Killer," she was known for her candor, her laughter and quick wit, her integrity, and her relentless independence. A pioneering spirit, she fought to be the first woman primary member of Lancaster Country Club, where she remained active until her passing. She was a devoted and loyal friend, a fierce advocate for fairness, and lover of animals. A dedicated fan of professional sports, she was knowledgeable and enthusiastic in her support, especially of the Buffalo Bills and Sabres. Always true to herself, she inspired joy and shared it generously with all who knew her. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers or gifts, donations may be made to the SPCA or your local animal shelter.
