Mary Jane Myers

Tallmadge, OH
TALLMADGE -- Mary Jane Myers, 90, passed away peacefully on May 24, 2013 surrounded by her family.

Mary Jane, the oldest of eight children, was born in Massillon, Ohio, on June 13, 1922, and grew up in Cuyahoga Falls. Mary Jane was the loving mother of six children who, in her eyes, could do no wrong. Besides spending time with her family, Mary Jane always had her hands in something whether it was sewing, working in her rock garden, working crossword puzzles, building a retaining wall, or playing bridge. She also enjoyed spending time on Catawba Island and was quite the little perch "fisherwoman". After she realized that she could catch more fish by baiting her own hook, she carried on this tradition well into her late 80s. Our mother was a wonderful lady whom we will remember for her love of her family and who loved to laugh, even days before she passed away.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Virginia H. and Maurice J. Weber; her husband of 55 years, Robert G. Myers; infant granddaughter, Megan M. Myers; sister, Patricia Ainsworth; brothers, Thomas Weber and Charles (Bud) Weber. She is survived by her children, Richard Myers, Greg (Jeanette) Myers, Ron (Janet) Myers, Gary (Jo) Myers, Cynthia Myers, Tonya (Ross) Jordan; grandchildren, Mitch (Amy) Myers, Jason Myers, Heidi (Jason) Whitten, Chad (Dianna) Myers; and her siblings, Nancy (Robert) Sidell, Edward Gerald (Carldetta) Weber, Janet (Frank) Zimmerman, Richard (Helen) Weber; and; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Calling hours will be held from 4 to 8 p.m., Tuesday, May 28, 2013 at Donovan Funeral Home, 17 Southwest Ave., Tallmadge, Ohio. (On the Historic Tallmadge Circle)

Mass of the Christian Burial will take place 10 a.m. Wednesday, May 29, 2013 at Our Lady of Victory Church, 73 North Ave., in Tallmadge with Rev. Fr. John Hengle officiating. Interment will be at Chestnut Hill Memorial Park, 2613 Sackett Ave., Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.

Mary Jane's family would like to give special thanks to those who helped her thrive through her later years; Alana Bader, who we believe helped to save her life, and Josh Dickey, who made her laugh while keeping her muscles strong; her caregiver and friend of eight years, Debra Simmons; and her other caregivers, Frankie, Icey, and Terrie, whose love and support enabled us to keep her at home until her passing. We also want to extend our sincere appreciation to Dr. Gwendolyn Hughes and nurses, Kelly, Rebekah, and Joycette, of the ICU West unit of Akron City Hospital, who lovingly helped us through the most difficult two weeks of our lives.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Hospice of Summa, 444 N. Main St., Akron, OH 44310.

What a wonderful woman she was! Her and I both know it would be more like me to refer to her as a stubborn, sexy, old bitty! What an impact she had on my life. Love you Mary Jane. I'll try to pick up where you left off on those romance novels!
