Obituary

Gladys H. Myers, our beloved family matriarch, mother, grandmother and great Myers, passed away at her home on Sunday, June 4, 2023.  She was 102.   Born in Spring Mills on December 2, 1920, Gladys was a daughter of the late Guyer and Alma (Leister) Grove.  She was a 1938 graduate of the former Gregg Township Vocational School.  On May 26, 1940, she married Robert E. Myers who preceded her in death on December 15, 1978.

Gladys is survived by one son, Jeffrey L. Myers (Cathy) of Spring Mills and three sisters, Virginia Weaver, Lucille Knupp and Hetty Runkle.  Also surviving are fourteen grandchildren: Mike, Niki, Terry, Tim, Mike, Kristi, Jodi, Natalie, Bob, Erica, Betsy, Robin, Curt and Chad, thirty-seven great grandchildren and seventeen great great grandchildren, along with numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews.  She was preceded in death by four sons, Barry, R. Dennis, Roger and Rodney Myers: two siblings, Steryl Grove and Ruby Frank, and two grandchildren, Nan Slaysman and Lori Myers.

Gladys was employed at the family business, the former Myers Brothers Meats, where she helped with several facets of the business.  She was a member of the New Hope Lutheran Church in Spring Mills.  She loved raising flowers and vegetable gardening in her younger years.  As she grew older and her pace slowed, she did word search and jigsaw puzzles to keep her mind sharp and crocheting to keep her hands nimble.  Family members were the recipients of her crocheting skills, receiving many afghan’s as gifts.  She will be greatly missed.

A visitation for family and friends will be held from 9:00 until 11:00 am at the New Hope Lutheran Church in Spring Mills on Thursday, June 8, 2023.  The funeral will follow at 11:00 am with Pastor Lauretta Dietrich officiating.  Gladys will be laid to rest in Farmers Mills Union Cemetery.  Contributions in memory of Gladys may be given to New Hope Lutheran Church, PO Box 96, Spring Mills, PA 16875.  Online condolences may be sent to the family at www.stevenrefffuneralhome.com.
