She is pre-deceased by her parents, James Garfield Smith and Emma Ray Brown Smith, her sisters, Lucille Smith Anderson, Annie Belle Smith Thompson, and her brothers, John Smith, Paul C. Smith and Elmer Smith. Mrs. Myers was originally from Moore, County, NC and she was a member of Mt. Gilead Baptist Church of Pittsboro, NC. She was a member of The Silver Angels Sunday School Class that was taught by Sandy Williams and she enjoyed being a part of all the fun times they had and she loved them very much.
Mrs. Myers spent much of her life in New York working at Harlem Valley State Hospital in Poughkeepsie. She was a supervisor in Food Service for 29 years. After her retirement, she moved back to North Carolina. In 2012, her health was declining and she moved to Florida to spend time with her only living sister, Annie Belle Thompson. After her sister passed away, she became a resident of Genesis Healthcare in Siler City in 2018 and remained there until her death.
Mrs. Myers was very crafty and enjoyed needlepoint and crocheting. She created many beautiful items. Her God and her church were important to her. She never had children but considered her brother, John Smith's children partially hers and she loved all her family.
She is survived by nieces, Carolyn Cate (Larry) of Chapel Hill, Dianne Smith Cates (Mike) of Pittsboro, Gail Smith Bryant ( Dean) of Moncure and nephews, Charles Smith (Jacqueline) of Hillsborough , Lee Smith (Patsy) of Mebane and Kenny Smith ( Yvonne) of Pikeville.
