Cyra was a Junior at Charles Page High School in Sand Springs, OK. She worked part-time as a cashier for Dollar General. She was strong willed and had a beautiful smile. Cyra loved her family and friends deeply and had a kind and caring heart. Cyra was in the Girl Scouts as a young girl. Cyra loved music, animals, and shopping, as well as the Vampire Diaries series, go carts, and minibikes. She enjoyed being creative, as can be seen in her photo and video editing, as well as her love of fashion and styling hair. She was a very convincing young lady, thus her numerous hair color changes throughout her years. She loved purple and green. She had dreams of being a Juvenile Justice Attorney, for which her tenacity and fierce spirit would have served her well.
She was a force to be reckoned with and given the time and opportunity, we are certain she would have changed the world in countless ways. Nevertheless, we are grateful for the time we had with her and will carry her in our hearts, always and forever.
