Ranger Exes Memorial - RHS Class of 1945 RJC

Myra Ice Pruet MYRA SUE ICE PRUET, 95, passed away the morning of Nov. 22, 2023. She was an example of one who lived life to the fullest to her husband, children, grand- children, and friends. Myra Sue was born on March 9, 1928 to Myron Ice (RHS- 1926) and Hilda Gray Ice (RHS-1924) in Ranger, TX. She attended Ranger High School in the Class of 1945. Myra graduated from Hardin Simmons University and married her high school sweetheart, Ronald Pruet (RHS-1945) in 1949. They moved often early in their marriage but settled in Midland, TX. They moved to Austin, TX in 1965 where Ronald obtained master's and doctorate degrees. They then moved to Oxford, MS in 1969 when Ronald became a professor at the University of Mississippi. They remained in Oxford for thirty-five years until Ronald's declining health led to a move to Houston, TX in 2004 to be nearer their children. Myra Sue embraced her new location at the age of 76 and was soon involved in being part of a new church family, meeting new friends, & playing bridge almost every day. She also fearlessly drove the Houston freeways, terrifying friends and family. Myra Sue was a faithful and active member of Bethel Church. She especially loved the deep friendships formed in the life group that met in her home every Wednesday evening. Myra Sue was predeceased by her parents, Hilda and Myron Ice, her husband Ronald, her daughter-in-law, Mary, and her brother Jim Ice (RHS-1949). She is survived by her sons, Ron (Sarah), Rick (Marian), and Brent, & her brother, Phil. She also leaves eleven grandchildren: Nicole (Dan), Emily (David), Taylor (Hanh), Tripp (Morgan), Rebeccah, Andrew (Casey), Gray (Madeline), Elizabeth (Francisco), Mary Grace, Jackson, and Lauren (Tex). She was also blessed with 13 great-grandchildren, and one whose arrival is eagerly awaited. We are all so thankful for the kindness of Lupe Ortiz who met so many of Myra's needs. Her worn and well-marked Bible is a testament to Psalm 119:105: "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."
