In memory of
MYRA MARTHA AVERY
19-02-1914 ~ 29-04-1997
Myra was a Foundation Member of the Sunshine Coast Orchid Society Caloundra Inc. and was delighted that the first meeting of the society was held in her home on 17th June 1960.
Myra served the Society as President for a number of years with distinction and her passing on 29th April 1997, was considered a great loss to the society and her many friends.
Myra and husband, Dick, were enthusiastic and devoted members of the society and were always ready to give advice to all who sought their knowledge on growing orchids, particularly the Phalaenopsis which they grew and flowered to perfection on a glassed-in verandah, much to the delight and interest of passers-by during their flowering season.
Myra was a most generous and loving person and her passing was a great loss to her friends and the society, but Myra will be remembered for her attitude towards life.
