Myra Waldo Schwartz, travel writer, food editor and critic died July 25.

A member of the Screen Actors Guild, Myra had numerous television appearances, a radio show on food on New York's WCBS News Radio 88 and was the food editor for The Baltimore Sun's This Week Magazine.

She wrote more than 40 books, including "The Complete Round the World Cookbook," "Seven Wonders of the Cooking World," "The Molly Goldberg Cookbook" and "1,001 Ways to Please Your Husband."

Her passport bears the stamp of nearly every country, and the former president of the Society of American Travel Writers once described her as "the most traveled woman in the world," having visited every continent but Antarctica. 

She is survived by her sister, Naomi Waldo Holtzman; nephews Dr. Gilbert and Dr. Donald Holtzman and their respective families. She remains an inspiration to her family, friends and fans.  -- Jill Holzman
