Nora M. Myer100, farmer, Minnich’s Bakery employee
Nora M. Myer, 100, formerly of Newport Road, Lititz, went home to be with her Lord and Savior Friday, Sept. 23, 2011 at the Mount Hope Nazarene Retirement Community, Manheim, after several years of declining health.
Born in Penn Township, she was the daughter of the late Phares and Clara Minnich Graybill. She married Earl L. Myer in 1938 and they farmed together until his death in November of 1955.
Nora continued farming until 1963, when she moved off the farm and her sons took over the operation. She received a full-time job at Brethren Village and worked in a food service supervisor position, retiring after 15 years. Following retirement she then worked another 10 years, part-time, at Minnich’s Farm Bakery in Lititz.
Nora was a member of the White Oak Church of the Brethren, where she was active in the sewing circle. She enjoyed traveling, gardening, cooking, knitting and quilting. She made a quilt and an afghan for each of her children and grandchildren. She was the happiest when her hands were busy: volunteering at Manheim Meals on Wheels, Transport for Christ, Church of the Brethren relief organizations, making and donating many quilts to local benefit auctions.
Surviving are a daughter: Delores, wife of John R. Ebersole, of Manheim; two sons: Carl, husband of Dorothy Waltz Myer, and John, husband of Judy Rohrer Myer, all of Lititz; nine grandchildren; 30 great- grandchildren; and a great-great- granddaughter.
Preceding her in death is a grandson: Gregory Scott Myer; a great-grandson: Kyle Wagner; two sisters: Sue Sensenich and Mary Myer; and two brothers: Earl and Hiram Graybill.
Her funeral service was held at the White Oak Church of the Brethren, Manheim, on Sept. 28 at 10:30 a.m. Interment took place in Graybill’s Brethren Cemetery, Elm.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be sent in Nora’s memory to the Mount Hope Nazarene Retirement Community, 3026 Mount Hope Home Road, Manheim, PA 17545.
