Mary Fernald Myers, age 86, of Lincoln University, Pennsylvania, passed away on August 14, 2023 at Chester County Hospital in West Chester, PA. She was the spouse of Ronald Myers, with whom she shared 55 years of marriage. Born in Rochester, New Hampshire, she was a daughter of Winfield Fernald and Abigail Huckins Fernald.
Mary graduated from University of Connecticut and earned her Bachelor's of Science degree in Wildlife Management. She worked at Patuxent Wildlife Research Center for several years. She chose to be the Homemaker for her husband and children until her death with some work in Ron's lab upon occasion.
She is survived by two daughters, Trudy Myers of Lincoln University, PA, Cynthia Myers Haggerty of Bedford, PA, Mark Myers, her son of Langhorne, PA, her sister Edna Pelto, her sister-in-law Kay Fernald, and grandchildren Anna Krohn and her husband Ethan Heilman, Daniel Haggerty, Christine Haggerty-Kipp and her husband Zachary Kipp. She is predeceased by her brother Carl Fernald.
She enjoyed making many different stained glass creations. Since the passing of her husband she enjoyed vacationing on cruises, sometimes with her family, sometimes on her own. She especially liked Holland America. Her motto was "I'm going to go as far as I can, as fast as I can, for as long as I can." And she certainly did!
Interment will be held privately. Contributions in her memory may be made to Tunnels to Towers Foundation (https://t2t.org/).
