Eleanor Crawley Myers
November 28, 1930 – April 11, 2020
Eleanor Jean Crawley Myers, 28 November 1930. It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to Eleanor C. Myers, after her passing on Saturday April 11th, 2020 at the age of 89. She was the daughter of Stan & Freda Crawley, and married to Jerry Myers on April 21st, 1951, her husband of nearly 50 years. She is remembered by her sister Elaine Karasch, her daughter Kristi (David) Hurd, and her son Scott (Loretta) Myers, her grandchildren Steve (Jaclyn) Hurd, and Katie (Joe) Scidurlo, and her great grand-children Samuel, Isaiah, and Elijah Hurd. Also nieces & nephews, great-nieces & nephews, and many friends.
Eleanor spent most of her working life at the Air Force finance center in Denver, and in the local Hazeltine elementary school. She was dedicated to her family, helped build her own home, and was a collector of many things. She also loved to travel and was lucky enough to visit many places, but her heart never really left Colorado. She learned to love country-living when she married and moved to the family farm where she raised her own kids.
A celebration of her life and memories will be held later this year in Chandler, AZ. The date and location will be posted here once finalized. (www.valleyofthesunfuneralhome.com)
In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to a foundation in her name for either of Cancer, Arthritis, Alzheimer’s, or American Lung Association.

Eleanor Crawley Myers

Ellie and I often kept in touch by email when I was growing up, and sent each other quirky stories about our day-to-day lives and any funny pictures or videos we found. I went through some of these emails recently and was glad that we shared so much through text because years later I can pull up those emails and re-experience the memories. While my emails were often complaining about school and just growing up in general, Ellie shared stories about her travels visiting Aunt Loretta and Uncle Scott and encouraged me to continue following my passions and just see where life takes me. Her positive energy is what I'll cherish the most.
It was as honor to have known Ellie. She will be missed, but never forgotten.

A delightful lady with a quick wit and ready smile. Fond memories of exploring the Turkish coastal region with Eleanor and her beloved Jerry, Scott and Loretta in the summer of '91.
A privilege to have shared fun times together with such fine people. It is impossible for us to think of Eleanor and her smart, funny, whacky, adventurous and kind-hearted family without a smile on our faces and a warm feelings in our hearts.

It is difficult to find words in sufficient quantity or quality to describe the person you were, what you gave to us, or what you meant to me. You gave to us selflessly, and whatever good might be in me, came through you.
Losing you hurts, and I’ll miss you all my remaining days. But at the same time I know that you’re no longer in pain, and no longer lonely. You will also no longer be missing Dad, and hopefully ballroom dancing somewhere even now.!
You'll never be forgotten.

This picture says it all !!
Eleanor (or mom) as I usually called her, always had the most warming smile that was contagious... it was impossible to frown when she was around.
The times we had talking about the opera in Central City or the cabin in Steamboat were always entertaining and humorous.
Finally the meetings we had with both she and your dad were not only historical and educational, but also full of hilarious stories of all of you growing up.
She will be deeply missed!

Whereas I had a few conversations with Eleanor (circa 2004-2011), she was always calming influence and a phenomenal listener. l I had the privilege of finally meeting Eleanor (~2009) in Houston. I recall that it was as if we had known each other for years, and she was always curious about other cultures. She also loved to talk about her family. I also know that my Eleanor and my mom would chat her ever so often.
May loving memories ease your loss and bring you comfort during this difficult time.
Our deepest sympathy.
