Louise Elizabeth Meyers (nee: Syrowski), 83 years of age, went home to our heavenly father on Sunday, May 14, 2023 at UH Elyria Medical Center surrounded by her family, after a brief illness.
She was born on December 28, 1939 and was a lifetime resident of Amherst. Louise attended South Amherst High School and later was employed at Nordson Corporation, retiring after thirty-two years.
Louise took great pride in being a wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and great great grandmother. Her greatest joy was being with her family and having family get togethers. She also enjoyed being outdoors, listening to music, cooking her infamous cabbage rolls and potato pancakes, and going to lunch with her girls.
Louise was a devoted Catholic and lifetime member of Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic Church of South Amherst. She was the greatest prayer warrior that ever walked this earth. She spent many hours with her prayer books and rosary, which were always nearby.
Survivors include her daughters and their husbands, Theresa and Brian Howald of Amherst, Rose and Jeffery Wright of Elyria, Deborah and Michael Burns of Ashland, Pamela Meyers of Youngstown, Christine and James Klausing of Avon Lake; twelve grandchildren; thirteen great grandchildren; two great great grandchildren; her sister Mary Ann Belcher of Kentucky and her dearly loved puppy, Kitty Ann.
She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of fifty-six years, Wayne R. Meyers in 2013; her grandson Brian T. Howald in 2017; her brothers, Arthur and John Syrowski; her sisters, Genevieve Moesher, Virginia Reed and Dolores Meyers; and her parents Stephen and Mary Syrowski (nee: Borowicz).
