DOVER- Elizabeth “Liz” Anne Myers, 68, a resident of Sawmill Village Way in West Dover, died Wednesday November 7, at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in Bennington following a courageous battle with ovarian cancer.

Mrs. Myers was born in Brooklyn, NY, on June 5, 1944, the daughter of Frederick and Ruth (Haller) Burkley. She received her education in Franklin Square, Long Island, schools, graduating from H. Frank Carey High School and then attending Hofstra University where she was a music major concentrating in voice.

Mrs. Myers worked in real estate for many years in Ridgefield, CT. She managed two William Raveis Real Estate Agency offices in Ridgefield and Newtown, CT. She also managed an office equipment store (Accuetec) and a Pepperidge Farms store, both in Ridgefield. She moved to Vermont along with her husband Paul fulltime in 2001.

Mrs. Myers was a former member of the Wilmington Congregational Church until the church merger with the West Dover Congregational Church where she remained a very vital and active member. She was an accomplished pianist and loved all kinds of music including musicals, opera, and Broadway shows.

She loved playing tennis and flower gardening, and was an exceptional cook. She cherished times spent with her family and loved spending time at her home in Bermuda.

She is survived by her husband, Paul Myers, of West Dover; daughter, Christine Anne Wrampe and her husband Peter, of Windham, NH; son, Andrew Paul Myers and his wife Chelsie, of Baton Rouge, LA; and her grandchildren, Paul and Nicholas Wrampe and Daniel and Emily Myers.
