Myra was born May 26th, 1953, in Belle Fourche, South Dakota to David and Donna Pecora. She was the older sister to Marie “Mim”, Marla and Casey. Myra grew up in Glasgow, Montana and was a graduate of the class 1971. Myra married Jay Smith and to their union- Lee Renee and Dodi were born. Myra married Samuel Gundermann on November 25, 1977 and to their union- Scott and Tony were born.
Myra loved her life in the north country. She enjoyed her friends and community. She was known as “Mama My” to almost everyone. She especially loved helping her guys out any way she could. If Sam said “Let’s go” she was out the door. You could count on her to deliver a three course meal to the field, run parts or help move the guys. When the work was done, Myra loved to be social and visit. She and Sam loved to take adventures and travel together. Myra loved her flower gardens and most recently- her gnome garden. She was an amazing wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She loved everyone whole heartedly.
Myra is preceded in death by her parents, David and Donna Pecora and brother Casey L. Pecora.
