Obituary for Lee Myers

“A well-loved classy lady”

Waynesville – Clyde Lee Myers, 90, passed away on Wednesday, December 20, 2017 at Silver Bluff Nursing Home.

One advantage of growing old and still being of sound mind after several strokes is you have time to write your own obituary.

I was born July 3, 1927 in Mullins, South Carolina. Parents named me after my Dad and they said General Robert E. Lee. For 54 years, I was married to George Myers, whom I met in Durham where my family had moved. George and I moved to Ohio where we raised our sons, John and David. I became a 4th grade teacher after graduating from Miami University.

In 1978, George and I moved to the beautiful Bethel community. I became active in the Book Sale at the library, the Democratic political party, Meals On Wheels and our church, Bethel United Methodist.

For 40 years, I was blessed to travel with George all across our country. So many dear friends were made which I kept close contact with until my passing. I was an avid reader; music is and has always been such a part of my soul. Loved all genres, but the Grateful Dead will always be my favorite. I was lucky enough to see them live in concert.

The gift of life was given to me, now I must give it back. This I am fighting to do. I was a lucky woman, who led a lucky existence and for that I am grateful.

So many losses near the end of my life, my beloved husband, George, in 2003 and my two sons, John, in 2010, and David in 2014. More than any wife or mother should have to endure. My curiosity and love of life kept me going through these losses and several strokes.

With the help and love of dear friends, I decided to be thankful for a long full life. It has been filled with more joy than sadness. I shall miss those who called me “Momma Lee”, all my friends from long ago to recently made, my caregivers who are special to me, Glenna and Debbie. To Sandy and Randy, who became my family and their family became mine; there are not enough words to express how grateful I am except thank you and “Love you told you first”.

I have made my peace; I know I shall pass peacefully. I have tried to live my life with integrity, generosity and a timeless spirit. Hope I have enriched many lives.

Instead of flowers, please send a memorial donation to “Book Sale” Friends of the Library, Attn: Martin, 678 S. Haywood St., Waynesville, NC 28786. Please be happy and never forget me, Lee.

The friends of Lee would like to express their gratitude to all who made those final days peaceful for her with their help, prayers, and love. She was precious, gracious, and a funny lady who loved life no matter what hand was dealt her. Lee Myers will never be forgotten.

A memorial service will be held at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 3, 2018 in the Canton Chapel of Wells Funeral Home with the Reverend Mike Duncan and Reverend Dr. G. David Russell officiating. A gathering of friends will occur immediately following the service.
