Darla was active serving her Lord from an early age, singing with her sisters on the radio and in churches, being a member of the Show My People TV choir while in college, and being an AWANA leader and Patch the Pirate Club leader in her church. She is currently a member of Pinecrest Baptist Church in McDonough, Ga.
Darla doted on her nieces and nephews like they were her own children. She will always be remembered for her beautiful smile and her sweet and tender spirit.

Elaine Gryder Sunday December 11, 2011
OCEAN SPRINGS -- Elaine Gryder was the epitome of a Southern woman and the type of person even young children wanted to emulate, a family friend said.
She had a timeless beauty, was gracious and she was always respectful. That level of respect she showed to everyone is what always made you feel special in her presence, said DeDe Munro, a friend of Gryders daughter. The widow and longtime businesswoman, co-founder of Gryder Shoes, died Sunday. She was 82. Gryder and her husband, Bill Gryder III, had opened 29 shoe stores in three states. Their Biloxi-based business was one of the original tenants at Edgewater Mall in Biloxi and was there 38 years.
Gryder was born in Pascagoula and made her home in Ocean Springs, where she and her husband hired an architect to build a whimsical, orchid-shaped home overlooking Fort Bayou. Gryder lived there from 1960 until 2000. Her son now lives there. Gryder was a member of numerous clubs and associations, including the Orchid Society and the Biloxi Garden Club, and was a flower-show judge. She was a Southern woman because of the way she was raised, said her daughter, Belinda Guice. She was raised with a lot of wonderful morals. Her mother was an English teacher and taught her etiquette. Mother was not the type of person to put on airs. She didnt want to be noted for that. She was very gentle to others. But she always insisted on wearing the proper attire and seemed to always know the right things to say.Guice recalled a time arrangements were being made to take her mother to a hospital by ambulance. Gryder insisted she have lipstick on.She would not have it any other way, Guice said. Guice and her brother, Bill Gryder IV, helped run the family business after their fathers death. They were so close to their mother it was once said you could barely fit a shoe horn between them. Her son told the Sun Herald in 2000 his mother was the driving force behind the business. We just try to keep up with her, he said. Gryder was known as Bama, a nickname given by her grandchildren for no particular reason. They dubbed her husband Boss. If you knew Elaine, you knew her as Bama, Munro said. She carried that name very proudly.
Funeral services are today at First Presbyterian Church of Ocean Springs. Visitation starts at 1 p.m. The service begins at 3 p.m.

John William Gryder (Baltimore Sun / February 2, 2012)
John William Gryder, who taught chemistry at the Johns Hopkins University for 40 years and was a civil rights activist, died Jan. 26 of complications from dementia at Roland Park Place. He was 85.
The son of a Pacific Electric streetcar motorman and a homemaker, he was born and raised in Pasadena, Calif. He was 16 when he enrolled at the California Institute of Technology and was 22 when he earned his doctorate in chemistry from Columbia University in 1948. Dr. Gryder joined the faculty at Hopkins in 1948. He spent his career teaching freshman chemistry and advising pre-medical students. In a profile in the Johns Hopkins Magazine at the time of his retirement in 1988, Dr. Gryder explained the rewards of being a teacher. "What I really enjoy is when somebody comes back from a long time ago, particularly someone I've completely forgotten, and attributed to me some of the things I've been attributing to my teachers. That happens every once in a while," he said.
A liberal Democrat, Dr. Gryder joined with Hopkins colleague and campus chaplain, the Rev. Dr. Chester Wickwire, in his civil rights work during the 1960s and 1970s. "He admired and supported the late Chester Wickwire's work. The Johns Hopkins Tutorial Project was started by Chester and reflected my father's hope that everyone should be given the opportunity to an education," said a son, David Jonas Gryder, who lives in Hillsborough, N.J. "He also was involved with many blockbusting cases when blacks were being kept out of white neighborhoods," he said. "A house for sale would be one price for whites and a different price for blacks, whom he'd accompany."
Dr. Gryder was a longtime resident of West Rogers Avenue in Mount Washington. He had lived at the Roland Park Place retirement community since 2005. He was an admirer of French culture, his son said, and would visit France every year. He also enjoyed reading and traveling. At Dr. Gryder's request, a private memorial service will be held. Also surviving are his wife of 63 years, the former Rosa Meyersburg, who was a Food and Drug Administration toxicologist; another son, Thomas W. Gryder of Vienna, Va.; a daughter, Katherine Ann Gibbs of Severna Park; and four grandchildren.
