Jacqueline J. Myers
DOVER- Jacqueline J. Myers, 78, died peacefully with her family by her side on Wednesday, October 9, at Albany Medical Center.
Mrs. Myers was born in New Haven, CT, to parents Rose and Aldo Battista. She grew up in New Haven, and graduated from Saint Mary’s High School.
After graduation, Mrs. Myers worked in the banking industry for three years. Many did not know that she was an accomplished pianist. In her teens, she was accepted into the Juilliard School of Music in New York but did not attend. In 1962, she married the love of her life, William (Bill) Myers. Together they established a home and family in East Haven, CT, for 54 years. For years Mrs. Myers spent her time raising her three beloved children and caring for her mother, Rose, and mother-in-law, Leona.
In 1991, Mr. and Mrs. Myers purchased a vacation home in West Dover. Over the years, they enjoyed many activities, favorite places, and memorable friends. In May 2016, Mr. and Mrs. Myers moved permanently to their vacation retreat. Mrs. Myers loved the serenity of Vermont and spending all her time with her love of her life. She would give daily nature reports to Bill and her girls. One of her favorite things was the daily visits from the local hummingbirds – each different one bringing her more excitement and peace. Another one of her favorite things was to give her grandkids tons of kisses. Mrs. Myers was a kind, generous, and gracious woman. She was the most loving mom and wife a family could ask for. She will be dearly missed and will be forever in our hearts.
Mrs. Myers is survived by her loving husband Bill; her daughters Maria Snow (Brad Glazer) and Elisa Myers; and all who called her “Nonnie,” her grandchildren William Myers III, Leah Rose Gobany, Andrew Gobany, and Jadi Glazer and her great-granddaughters Hailey, Lillian, and Daisy Myers. She was preceded in death by her son, William Myers Jr.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, October 26 at Our Lady of Fatima Church in Wilmington at 11 am. A reception will follow in the church hall after the service.
