Beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend, Constance Marjorie Myers of Mechanicsburg, 102 ½, passed into eternal rest on October 22, 2021, surrounded by her loving family. She was preceded in death by her husband, SFC Donald W. Myers.
Connie was born on March 29, 1919, in Barking, Essex, England, the daughter of Constance and Albert Mitchell. She was a war bride who worked for the American Red Cross and served in communications with the Women’s Auxiliary British Royal Air Force during WW II. A poppy will be placed in her honor in the Westminster Abbey Field of Remembrance, London, England, on Remembrance Day, November 11, 2021. Her name will also be professionally inscribed in the Royal British Legion Never Forget Book of Remembrance, on display in its London headquarters.

Connie was a faithful parishioner at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Mechanicsburg for over sixty years, and she was active in the Altar Guild, Episcopal Church Women, Steeple People and lay ministry. She loved her family, her church family, her many friends and traveling. She performed volunteer work for Meals on Wheels and New Hope Ministries and was a member of the local Trans-American British Brides Association. She touched many lives, and her grace, her wit and positive attitude were an inspiration to all who met her.
