Judith Myers, 92, a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, passed away on Sunday, May 17, 2020 surrounded by her family.
Mrs. Myers was a true Angel on Earth, as she was born to Henry and Rachel Angel in March 1928, in Shelburn, IN. She grew up as the middle child of five girls in Clay City, IN.
Mrs. Myers began working in the 1940’s as a secretary, and as a hand model. She was a homemaker, loving mother, and a Sunday School teacher at Lawrence United Methodist Church. She was the Vice-President of Myers Landscape Company, which installed thousands of yards at new homes in the greater Indianapolis area. In addition, she was the Vice-President of Myers Construction Company, which developed both the Country Lakes Estates and Pine Knoll subdivisions in Noblesville, IN.
On a fateful day in 1947, she met Harry Myers at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument in downtown Indianapolis. Harry promised to “show her the world”, and they married two years later. Harry and Mrs. Myers visited five continents and all 50 states before celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary, prior to Harry’s passing.
Mrs. Myers became a member of the DAR in 2016. In addition to genealogy, Mrs. Myers loved to travel, to paint, to garden, and to mow the lawn. Her favorite activity was spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Nothing stopped Mrs. Myers when she set her mind to a task: from planning family road trips (pre-google maps era), to completely disassembling and removing a broken upright piano, and pulling up the carpet to expose the ancient hardwood floors by herself (while in her 90’s).
Mrs. Myers was known for her quick wit, and her loving and compassionate spirit. The family would like to express their gratitude to the nurses at Compassus Indianapolis Hospice Care.
Survivors include her husband and love of her life, Harry; their three children, Cathy, Phillip and Elizabeth; along with their spouses, Keith, Susy and George; their grandchildren, Kelly, Gavin, Kolby and Allison; along with their spouses/future spouses Jason, Angie, Michelle and Matt; great-grandchildren Madison, Landon, Baby Myers (due in June), Noah, Henry and Sofia; three sisters, Melba, Mary and Rachel; one brother-in-law, Russell; as well many nieces and nephews too numerous to list, but not forgotten.
She is preceded in death by both parents; one sister, Jeanne; two brothers-in-law, Harley and Richard; and all the ancestors she discovered back to the Magna Carta in 1215, while avidly researching the family’s ancestry.
There will be no visitation or funeral at this time, but there will be a Celebration of Life Party to be held in the Fall of 2020.
