Myrna J. Deckert (Northeast)

Northeast Branch
9135 Stahala Drive
(915) 519-0004

In 1983 the new Northeast Branch was dedicated and named in honor of Myrna Jean Deckert. Myrna began her YWCA career in 1963 as a Teen Director. In 1969 she became Assistant Executive Director. Myrna believes that throwing herself into her work at the YWCA helped her win a battle with cancer in the 1970’s.

Under Myrna’s leadership, the YWCA grew from one building to 5 Branches, 15 community Child Care Centers, Camp YW, The Branch at the Hueco Club, TLC and Independence House. In 2002, Myrna retired from the YWCA and became COO of the Paso Del Norte Group. Presently she is the CEO of the Paso Del Norte Health Foundation.
