Relationship to the deceased:
Once, when Myra Joy Aronson was visiting her brother and his family in Washington, she found out about the Bastille Day celebrations at the French Embassy and managed ‹ at the very last minute ‹ to get herself invited. It was characteristic both of her love of all things French, and her spontaneous energy. She had fallen in love with France during a year abroad in college, and in recent years she held annual French-themed dinners with 15 or 20 friends, where they would prepare an elaborate Gallic feast with excellent wines. She also organized trips to Cape Cod with her friends in the summer. Ms. Aronson, 50, loved music and did volunteer work for the Handel & Haydn Society in Boston. A manager for Compuware in Cambridge, Mass., she was a passenger on American Airlines Flight 11 on Sept. 11. Her family and friends have established a scholarship at Miami University, her alma mater, to help students who want to study in France. Living in France while an exchange student was a privotal event in Myra's life. Accordingly, her family has set up a scholarship at Miami University of Ohio to allow a student to study in France. Donations should be made in memory of Myra J. Aronson, Class of '71. I think she would have liked that another student would learn about France and about her life. -Nancy Aronson, sister-in-law
