Odilia A. Myers, 95, passed away on Friday, Nov. 30, 2012.
She was married for 63 years to Wilfred A. Myers (deceased). They had five children, Dr. Jane Suresky, of Cleveland, Susan York, of Rochester, Minn., William (Amy) Myers, of Medina, Ohio, Frances Holm, of Huron, and Rita (Glen) Weiringa, of Santa Fe, N.M. She had seven grandchildren, Aaron Holm, Derek and Ray York, Livia Weiringa, Emily Mangham, Elizabeth Wallace and James Myers; six great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild.
She was born and raised in Putnam County, Ohio, and grew to be a very resilient and resourceful woman who was proud of her German heritage and her Catholic faith. Baking, gardening, quilt making, needlepoint, wallpapering, walking and volunteering were activities that provided her with much enjoyment in life outside of her family.
She was active in St. Joseph Catholic Church, Monroeville; Fisher-Titus Auxiliary in Norwalk; and The Huron County Historical Association and was always ready to assist anyone in need in her church, family, community and neighborhood.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to St. Joseph Catholic School, Monroeville.
