Rosemary T. Myers

Rosemary T. Myers (nee Glimm, Nov. 15, 1926) passed away at noon on March 29 at 91 after a short battle with pancreatic cancer. Loving mother to two daughters, Rosemary Myers and Carol Myers, both of Athens, GA, and son Charles Myers and daughter-in-law Julianna of Portland, Maine. Devoted grandmother to Clare Saunders, Anne Saunders, Ella Myers, Hagen Myers, and Ford Myers. Loving aunt to Barbara Glimm, Clare Murphy, Nancy Glimm, and Gracemary Banford. Predeceased by her husband, Charles F. Myers; brother, James Glimm; and sister Grace Murphy. Rosemary modelled a life of doing good for others, intellectual curiosity, love of literature, and a deep appreciation for nature, the arts, and history.  She grew up in Brooklyn, NY, attending P.S. 198 and Midwood High School. She was 1943 NYC high school poet laureate for her poem "Dawn Alarm" describing the morning when the “air raid alarms tumbled and wailed” and “white faces peered from behind every curtain.” Graduated from St. Joseph’s College 1948, president of the student council and valedictorian. Taught several years in the New York City school district, a time when she met her husband Charlie at a church dance. Soon after marrying in 1953 they moved to Baldwin, New York, where she taught at Steele School, a cherished teacher to many. After retirement, she traveled, volunteered with Literacy Volunteers of America, was a longtime member of MILL (Molloy College Institute of Lifelong Learning) and an active member of the Women’s Advance Club and the AAUW. Playing bridge, reading books, doing the N.Y. Times crossword puzzle, working in her garden and spending time with her grandchildren -- all brought her much pleasure. Her final months were spent happily in Athens, GA, with her two daughters and a newfound love of biscuits.  Memorial donations can be made to St. Joseph’s College, Office of Institutional Advancement, 245 Clinton Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11205. A memorial mass will take place Friday at 11:15 am at St. Christopher’s Church, Baldwin, NY. Family and friends invited back to home at 3 pm.
