Margaret Ellen Myers, 90, of Libertytown, died Friday, Feb. 15, 2013, in Frederick, after a brief illness.

Born June 20, 1922, near Libertytown, she was the daughter of the late Winfield Scott Rippeon and Pearl Virginia Curfman Rippeon. She was the wife of Louis Vincent Myers Jr., who died Dec. 10, 2012, her husband of 66 years.

She was one of 13 children raised on the family farm. She attended public schools in Libertytown. During the Great Depression, she went to live with a great aunt in West Friendship. She then worked in Baltimore at the Mary Company Department Store during World War II. After the war she returned to Libertytown and married her husband on Aug. 8, 1946.

She was, for many years, the Woodsboro Elementary School secretary, and was very popular with the students and the teachers due to her affable nature and willingness to be everything from a second mother to a school nurse.

She was a member of the Johnsville Senior Citizens Club and for many years planned the many excursions. She was a member of St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church in Libertytown. For many years she was the chauffeur for the nuns at Notre Dame Academy, as they were unable to drive. She was a member of the Sodality of the church and volunteered for any job that would benefit the church or school.

She was an avid gardener, and bird-watcher. She enjoyed traveling, reading, genealogy and homemaking, and most especially her family.
