Betty J. Myers

May 10, 1933 — June 2, 2024

Syracuse

Betty Jean Myers, of Keizer, OR, formally of Syracuse, IN passed from this world into heaven, Sunday, June 2.   As she took her final breath, we were assured that she was embraced by her savior.  She was a woman of faith and Jesus was always by her side.

Betty was preceded in death by her parents, Ray E. Bray and Erna M. Bray, a brother, Richard Bray and a granddaughter, Britiney Marie Alt Johanson.

Betty was born in Milford, Indiana on May 10, 1933, where she lived until she graduated from Milford High School.  After graduating she attended Indiana University. She was married to Charles (Chuck) Myers on November 28, 1953, in Milford, IN. After living on Lake Wawasee for a brief time, she moved with Chuck to Fort Knox while he served in the army for two years. Upon returning to Syracuse, Indiana, they joined his father, Cletus Myers in the C.S. Myers Ford business in Milford, IN.

Betty enjoyed the lake life on both Wawasee and Syracuse lakes, hosting many gatherings at their home with the 4th of July being an annual family reunion for many years. She enjoyed traveling in their motorhome and spending the winter months in California. Betty lived in Syracuse for ninety years of her life before relocating to Keizer, OR in 2023 to be near her daughter Christi Miller and her family.

She was a member of Wawasee Bible Church and a longtime member of  Milford Christian Church where she served as a children’s leader for many years. (Many may remember the large book she used to teach the words to, “How Great Thou Art”). She was gifted in counseling and mentored many girls and women in their Christian Walk, she was a prayer warrior, involved with Lifetouch Ministries, Mama’s House (a maternity home in California) and she led many bible studies.  She loved to study and memorize God's Word.

Betty is survived by her husband of 70 years: Charles Myers of Keizer, OR. Her two daughters: Christi Myers Miller (Greg) of Keizer, OR and Sherry Myers Alt (Greg) of Hoschton, GA. Three grandchildren: Courtney Alt Nieman (Paul) of Jefferson, GA, Matthew Miller (Kristin) of Salem, OR, Hannah Miller Whitney (Cameron) of Keizer, OR. Five great grandchildren: Selah Nieman, Winslow Miller, Everly Nieman, John Whitney, Roselyn Miller. A sister: Mary Ellen Troup of Goshen, IN and two brothers: Larry Bray of Milford, IN and Jerry Bray of Milford, IN.
