Obituary of Myrtle A. Prefume
Myrtle A. Prefume, 91, of Syracuse, New York entered into restful sleep on December 14, 2022 at Central Park Rehabilitation & Nursing Center.
She was born to late Charles and Hazel (VanValkenburg) Prefume in August 1931 in Harrisville, NY; a very small town in Northern most part of the state. After graduating from Ogdensburg High School, she ended up in Syracuse, and resided on the North Side for several decades. Myrtle was proud of her long term employment with General Electric; and as a huge lover of dogs, she enjoyed relaxing with her beloved fur babies.
Along with her parents, Myrtle is predeceased by her siblings: Irene (Prefume) Yerdon, Charles, Ethel, John, and Carmetta Prefume, Jose Faria, and Helen (Faria) Gibson. She is survived by one brother, Floyd Faria, of Daytona Beach, FL; as well as many nieces and nephews who loved their Aunt Myrtle dearly.
A private graveside service was held with family at St. Mary's Cemetery, Dewitt. Consider memorial donations in Myrtle's name to: Alzheimer's Association via their website at Donate for Alzheimer's
