TULSA (AP) -- Myra Worley -- the wife of longtime Tulsa World executive editor Joe Worley -- has died at age 67.

The newspaper reported Sunday that Myra Worley died Thursday of cardiac arrest at a Tulsa hospital where she had been taken after suffering flu-like symptoms.

Worley and her husband moved to Tulsa in 1987 when Joe Worley was hired by the World. Myra Worley had also worked for newspapers and spent time volunteering with animal organizations, children's shelters, prenatal programs and as an elementary school tutor.

She's survived by her husband, two children, two grandchildren, a brother and her mother.

A memorial service is scheduled for 11 a.m. Monday at St. Aidan's Episcopal Church.
