Myra Voss Fisher

July 2, 1920 - April 27, 2009

Myra Fisher, an islands resident for nearly 60 years, was born in 1920 in Glencoe, Minnesota, a farming town near the Twin Cities, where her father owned the Commercial Hotel and served for many years as mayor. She graduated from Hamline University, majoring in Journalism, then moved during the war to Detroit, where she met and married Carl, who shortly thereafter was asked by the U.S. Labor Department to move to Honolulu. (He later directed labor relations for American Factors.) Myra soon followed him to Hawaii, traveling from San Francisco with other spouses in separate quarters on a troops-transporting steamship.

Myra enjoyed a long career in public relations, advertising, and real estate. She was granted her Hawaiian real estate brokerage license in 1955, and later obtained brokerage licenses in California and New York. While gregarious and a natural raconteur, Myra took particular pride in crafting the written word to convey a sense of place in ads aimed at selling exclusive properties. She founded Land Investments, a residential brokerage in Honolulu, and later worked on the marketing aspects of commercial projects in New York City, Grand Bahamas Island, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, as well as in the Islands. She was also an active patron of the arts and founding member of the Contemporary Arts Museum in Honolulu. Myra was a 50-year member of the Outrigger Canoe Club.

Myra is survived by two children, Linda of Naalehu on the Big Island, and Karel of Lafayette, California, as well as daughter-in-law Anne; four grandchildren (for whom she was simply "Tutu"), Paul of Honolulu, Jordan, along with wife, Maxine, of New York City, Landis, along with husband, Kieran, of Los Angeles, and Nolan of Oakland; and, two great-grandchildren, Finlay of New York and Cassidy of Los Angeles. Myra is also survived by sister Myrtle, a fraternal twin, of St. Paul, Minnesota.

Myra loved Hawaii's gentle climate, the beauty of its mountains and seashore, the fragrance of its flower leis, the grace of its hula dancers, and the aloha spirit of its residents. Thus, she felt blessed to have lived the vast majority of her life in the Islands.

Myra's wishes were to be cremated and to have her ashes sent to the family plot in Minnesota.Those wishing to express sentiments about Myra may address their notes to Linda Fisher, P.O. Box 216, Naalehu, Hawaii 96772. Linda will share these sentiments with all family members.
