Joyce Norris Myers

May 23, 1930 - August 29, 2016 Kennett Square, PA | Age 86 Loving Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Sister and Friend.

Joyce Norris Myers, 86, died peacefully surrounded by her family on August 29th. Joyce was born on May 23, 1930 in Warrenton, Georgia the daughter of the late Buford and Elizabeth (Smith) Norris. She was preceded in death by her husband Merrill Myers Sr. and her sister Betty Norris Preston. She is survived by her beloved sister Mimi Sergi, and her children Merrill Myers Jr. (Cubby), his wife Carol and her daughter Pamela Myers-Waters, with whom she spent the last nine months of her life happy and at peace. Over the last nine months, she enjoyed playing gin rummy with her family, and laughing at her favorite TV show Two and a Half Men. She also enjoyed spending time with her family having cook outs on the deck. She is also survived by another son Norris Myers Sr.; her grandchildren Zachary and Kaitlin Myers, Cody Waters, Norris Jr., and Merrill Myers; 2 great grandchildren and a number of nieces, nephews and close friends.

Joyce was an active real estate broker for over 55 years and enjoyed helping people become home owners. During her extensive career in real estate she helped many people buy not only their first starter home but every home thereafter. She also enjoyed time spent with her children and eventually their families. She was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star for over 54 years as well as the DAR. She was also an avid, and very good, card player and loved to play bridge. During her time at Brandywine Assisted Living she not only played bridge but taught other residents just to make sure she always had a foursome! Before she went to assisted living she spent many happy years living with her son Merrill, his wife Carol and their two children Zack and Kaiti. She loved helping to take care of Zack and Kaiti and would read the paper as she waited for Zack to get off his school bus.

She may be ‘gone from our sight’ for now but will be forever in our hearts. Where we are lamenting the fact that ‘she’s gone’, there are other loved ones joyously calling, “Here she comes, here she comes!”

The family wishes to thank all those associated with the Neighborhood Nurses and Hospice Unit who helped to care for her during her final days. In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations be made in her memory to Devereux, PA Adult Services, at 139 Leopard Road, Berwyn, PA 19312.

  3. Pam, I was saddened to hear that your mom passed. Please accept my warmest sympathy. Through these last months you have shown courage and care that has been an inspiration to me. Your example is one that has encouraged me in my own journey with caring for my parents. I thank you for the strength you gave me while I thought I was offering encouragement to you. My love and prayers are with you and your family.

  5. Miss you Aunt Joyce. Thanks for all you taught me as a teenager and as a man. You once told me when I was 22 years old, and I was going through a bad time in my life trying to “find myself” that I was never lost in the first place and that my twenties should be the most glorious time in my life before I had to get serious about things. Thanks for that, I never forgot it. You taught me that life was like going to the movies for free every day. You were so right. ! And you were your also right about how I pronounced mayonnaise; you said “Stevie, it’s not pronounced Mayonnaise; It’s “Myonaise”. Love you Aunt Joyce. And all my love to Norris, Karen, Pam, Cubby and Carroll and your families. Nothing more important than family. Love you all.
