Marilyn Ann Blanchet Myers passed away peacefully at AngelsGrace Hospice in Oconomowoc on November 21, 2014.

 

Marilyn was born in Ohio on June 5, 1924, and received her nursing degree in Toledo, Ohio, in 1947. She worked as an obstetrics nurse at hospitals in Ohio and Minnesota, before marrying her husband, Dr. Sherman C. Myers, in 1950.

 

Marilynís husband, her parents (Burton Kent Blanchet and Irma Ely Blanchet King), and sister (Susan M. Blanchet Burns) preceded her in death.

 

She is survived by daughters Carol Kline (Robert) of Jacksonville, Fla., Kathy Myers (Peter Forster) of Oconomowoc and Monte Phillips (Charles) of Clarksburg, Md.; grandchildren Justin Klug (Tia) of Milwaukee, Evan Klug of Chicago, Elizabeth Zak (Kyle) of Appleton and Megan Forster of Wauwatosa; great-grandchildren Adeline and Ezra Klug; nieces Claudette Hatcher (Charles) of Prichard, W.Va., Margaret Brown (James Horn) of Westminster, Colo., and Jean Deets (Bruce) of Westminster; nephew Richard Burns (Kate) of Wynnewood, Pa.; and other extended family and friends.

 

Marilyn was an avid reader, loved animals and nature, enjoyed playing cards and antiquing, and played tennis into her 80s. She will always hold a special place in our hearts as a loving mother, wife, sister, aunt, trusted friend, and terrific Grandma Bear!
