Myra Kaye McEntire Steele departed this life on September 23, 2022, at home with her daughter in Landis, NC. Kaye was born on February 6, 1952, to the late Lettie and Robus McEntire. She was a graduate of East Rutherford High School. After high school, she started her career with Burlington Industries where she worked for 34 years, mostly in human resources. Upon leaving Burlington, she worked for Watts Regulator as a Human Resources Manager for 17 years until her retirement.
She was a dedicated and loved member of Doggett Grove AME Zion Church, where she served as the church secretary, trustee, missionary president, and was a member of the choir. Kaye loved to sing and had a beautiful voice which she used to glorify God.
