Thelma Elizabeth Myers
Thelma Elizabeth Myers born Jan. 31, 1937, to Wilma and Harold Layton, went to be with the Lord Saturday, Feb. 25, 2012. She was the oldest of 11 children, a devoted wife, and caring and precious mother to her children.
Thelma grew up in Pennsylvania and later she and her family settled in Scio. Thelma worked at the Scio Pottery Company until its closing, and then became a caregiver for the elderly to families in Harrison County. After she decided to stop working out of the home, she spent time enjoying yard sales, listening to music, baking goodies, spending time with her family and fellowship with the Lord. Thelma was always quick to lend a helping hand to anyone she met and was kind to all.
She leaves behind her children, Mary Degarmo (Jake) of Mineral City, John Myers (Becky) of Mt. Pleasant, PA, Paula Myers (Chet) of New Philadelphia, William Myers (Susan) of Amsterdam and Barbie Myers (Bubba Jones) of New Rumley. Her sisters and brother include Shirley Shaffer of Aultman, PA, Judy Hendricks of Marion Center, PA, and Ed Layton of Indiana, PA.
Thelma was preceded in death by many of her brothers and sisters, and her oldest son, David, in 2009.
