South Port’s local philanthropist and entrepreneur legend, Myra London has passed away from natural causes early yesterday morning. She lived to be 87 years old and is preceded in death by her husband, Randy London, twin sister, Milla Traver, and parents, Holly and Daniel Dannon. She is survived by her only child, Cole London (Lucy), and three grandchildren, Alice, Itzel, and Milo.
She was surrounded by her family until the end.
Myra fearlessly started and sold half a dozen businesses, adding a hefty portion to the London’s savings. She was not content to sit back and be a lawyer’s wife, she had the fire to make her own impact on the community.
She created the Dannon Local Business Award which pays one full year of college for teens that work two years at a local business. Supporting local community was a life mission that she accomplished many times over.
Her other great loves were for her family and cats, which she brought with her much to her son’s chagrin, when she moved in with him some years ago.

Myra through the years:
Notes: Alas, it was Myra’s time. She was supposed to be included with the July birthdays but the post was already long enough, and I didn’t have these photos taken or organized yet.
I took the photos of her through the years, as she was born in my game like back when TS2 was released, just a bit after… so I seriously have no photos and my graphics card and skintones were such crap, that they wouldn’t be good if they did still exist. Her and Milla were my first naturally born twins so they’ll always be special for me.
I was disappointed that she passed before Alice found someone. She would have enjoyed being at her wedding and meeting great-grandchildren, especially from Alice. She wouldn’t admit it, but Alice was her favorite. 😉
