Vera Rose Myers


Vera Rose Myers, age 100 of Park Village Health Care Center in Dover, died Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2019.

Born Feb. 22, 1918, Vera was born at Sand Coulee, Montana, a daughter of the late James F. and Josephine Downing DeBois.

Following her graduation from high school, Vera furthered her education at Meredith Business College. On July 18, 1942, she married George E. Myers, Sr. Together the couple shared in 48 years of marriage prior to his death in 1991.

As a toddler Vera was stricken with and remarkably survived polio. While her left leg was left impacted by the virus, she never allowed her disability to slow her down. She was a longtime member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church at New Philadelphia, where she was a member of the Altar Society. She was an avid reader who also loved cooking and collecting recipes.

Surviving are a son, Charles (Carol) Allese of Pennsylvania; six grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren; and two sisters, Grace DeMonte of Dover and Helen Casper of Canton.

In addition to her parents and husband, Vera was preceded in death by a son, George E. Myers, Jr., and her siblings, Jack, Paul, Florine, Fred, Frank, Erma, Gladys and Teresa.

The family will greet guests on Saturday, Jan. 5 from 10-10:45 a.m. in the Linn-Hert-Geib Funeral Home & Crematory at New Philadelphia. Father Jeff Coning will celebrate a Mass of Christian Burial on Saturday at 11 a.m. in Sacred Heart Church. Burial will follow in Calvary Cemetery at New Philadelphia. Following services, all are invited to a meal in St. Ambrose Hall, adjacent to the church.

Memorial contributions in Vera’s name may be directed to the Sacred Heart Church Building Fund, 139 Third St. NE, New Philadelphia, OH 44663.
