Jean (Hart) Myers, September 21, 1937-July 19, 2020, Aged 82

With tender hearts, we share news of the passing of our beloved wife, mother, and grandmother, Jean (Hart) Myers. Jean died at home surrounded by her immediate family and embraced by the love of friends and extended family, seven months following an advanced cancer diagnosis.

Born in 1937, Jean was raised in Manchester, Guysborough County, by Murray and Maud (Callaghan) Hart. She trained as a Certified Nursing Assistant at Camp Hill Hospital and nursed at the Guysborough Hospital and the Halifax Civic Hospital before the births of her children. She then turned her attention to raising a family sustained by her love, fortified by her kindness, and strengthened by her patience. She was a supportive partner and best friend to her husband of 57 years, Ray Myers (Halifax), a deeply loving and engaged mother to Sharon Myers (Charlottetown) and Shelley Newman (Halifax), and a brilliantly proud and devoted grandmother to Mallory Newman (Halifax) and Ashleigh Newman (Charlottetown). We loved her deeply and have a lifetime’s comfort in knowing how deeply she loved us.

Jean volunteered in various school associations, as a Brownie and Girl Guide leader, and she had a longstanding involvement with the United Church Women (UCW) in Halifax, Milford, and at Trinity United Church, Timberlea, the latter the family’s home church for over forty years. She was an expert berry-picker, a passion and skill she honed since childhood, a much-applauded cook and baker, and a crafter extraordinaire. Many family members, friends, neighbours, and organizations benefited from her gifts of these kinds.

Jean was predeceased by her mother, Elva (Hart) Rose and brother Ronald Rose, and is survived by her much-loved brothers David Rose (Leslie) and Gordon Rose (Pat). A heartwarming collection of friends, Hart and Myers relatives, descendants, and in-laws spread across Nova Scotia and New Brunswick enriched her life and helped her to build beautiful and sometimes humorous memories.

A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, July 22 at 2:00 pm at J. A. Snow Funeral Home, 339 Lacewood Drive, Halifax. Appropriate COVID precautions will be in place, but for those who are unable to attend or otherwise find it desirable, a link to a live-stream of the service will be available through https://funeraweb.tv/en/diffusions/16116/wait Family flowers only.

Ray, girls, and grand girls, will so miss seeing Jean at Trinity for all those decades, esp her smile and beauty, and her enjoyment watching those girls in the church concerts. Take comfort in each other as I continue to do. Thanks for the Web service, Sincerely, Claire

Thinking of you guys. Aunt Jean was always a lady and always had a smile. She was so good to Mom and all of us when she was in hospital in Halifax, drives and support whenever we needed it. Her kindness to everyone will never be forgotten. God has gained an angel and left us all with many memories.

Thoughts and prayers to all
Joann and Bill

Ray Myers & Family
Pushpa, I and our children are very sorry for your loss. It is our loss too. We were not only next door neighbours for about thirty years, we became family. Jeans passing away is a huge loss to us. She was so open, welcoming, and thoughtful. Her laughs were legendary! We knew we were in the company and graces of a great lady and family. It was a tremendous welcome to relatively new arrivals to this great province and country. We will cherish her memories for ever. May God provide peace to her soul and take her under His care. What an angel!
