Josephine “Josie” Myer passed away peacefully on Sept. 12, 2023. Born on Nov. 6, 1932 in Ellendale, she was the daughter of the late John and Blanch (Williams) Mereider.

After high school, Josie married J. Hearn Myer in November 1950, spending 71 wonderful years together before his passing. She was a dedicated farmer’s wife and homemaker, raising their children in Bridgeville.

Josie and Hearn loved traveling and spending time together. Josie was passionate about bingo, and played whenever she got the chance. However, her greatest treasure was the time spent laughing and having fun with her family and friends. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, aunt, and friend, who will be missed by everyone who knew her.

Josie was predeceased by her husband, J. Hearn Myer; her son, John Myer; sister Ruth Culver; and brother Clifford Mereider. She is survived by her daughter, Bonnie Myer; sister Phyllis Anthony, sisters-in-law Shirley Mereider and Lorraine Little as well as many nieces and nephews.
