Patricia Myers

Patricia Myers, long-time APW member, passed away on Thursday, February 2. Readers of the TypeRider will be familiar with her Paris Journal, reports from her summer months spent in the city she loved. She was a jazz aficionado and was involved in writing about it and letting people know about jazz events.

From her obituary at AZCentral.com, “Myers’ column, “RIFFS: News from Out and About,” won several Arizona Professional Writers Awards, as did many of her reviews. She also maintained what Goldenthal call the “bible” of listings of live jazz in Arizona.” She wrote that column for 45 years.

Patricia was active in APW, serving as president, winner of the Communicator of Achievement award and assisted with publicity.

A Celebration of Life will be held sometime in April. Donations can be made to the Patricia Myers Scholarship, payable to Young Sounds of Arizona (a 501c3 nonprofit organization), 1202 E. Oak St., Phoenix, 85006, or by calling 602-254-8838.
