Joyce Norris Myers

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. 

The family would like to share with everyone , Joyce’s favorite scriptures, which are listed below.

John 14:1-6 My father’s house has many rooms

23rd Psalm

The Lord’s Prayer 

Services will be private and held at a later date.
