Claudea Mae Myers, aka: Jo, Gramma or Aunt Sis passed away, of natural causes, at her second home in St. George, Utah on January 26, 2021. She was born at home in Sparta, Oregon on March 19, 1934--the first of 8 children of Boe and Ila Wilson. She married her sweetheart, David Myers, on March 31, 1951 in Weiser, Idaho. They raised their children, Kitty and Daniel, in Halfway, Oregon where they settled after Dave served in the Air Force and worked on various missile sites around the country.
She spent her working career at Brooklynn Grade School, first as a reading aid and then as the school librarian. She loved kids--always remembering their names and excited to see them as they grew up. Family was first, always and forever! Family reunions and her sister get-togethers were her all-time favorites. She enjoyed trading fabric, hair colors, books and bling with her four sisters. Nothing was too sparkly or glitzy for her. She never found a lipstick too red or a purple too bright. She enjoyed sewing--especially for kids, big or small-- embroidery, growing beautiful flowers, feeding hummingbirds, spoiling her dog Sadie and loving on all the babies in the family. She was also a tech-savvy Gramma, who not only texted almost as much as a teenager, but who wielded a laptop to Skype with her sisters, make Facebook friends with former students, surprise her grandkids with PayPal money, win bargain book auctions from eBay and buy cute shoes online.
She is survived by her daughter Kitty and son Dan; favorite daughter-in-law Sue; grandchildren Che, Chelsea and Sara; great-granddaughters Alex and Marinah; sisters Leanna, Margie, Phyllis and Ila; many nieces and nephews, and cousins by the dozens that she adored.
She was preceded in death by her husband Dave, daughter Judy, favorite son-in-law John, her parents and brothers Delton, Walt and Jerry.
In remembrance of Sis--plant flowers, have a margarita, dye your hair purple, wear red lipstick, eat chocolate, always visit with children and dogs, wear all your bling at once (even if it doesn't match) and call your family!
Due to Covid, we will not be having a service at this time. We're looking forward to a celebration of her life this summer. At her request, we will eat fried chicken and play lots of "real" country music...more of her favorite things!
