Betty Lou (Canoles) Myers
Betty Lou Myers, 79, of Paris, passed away, Thursday, May 23rd, 2013 from complications of AAA, hypertension, brain hemorrhage, strokes, renal failure and heart with her husband Howard and daughter Jean as her loving caregivers since 2003 and her companion dog Ling always by her side to keep up the fight.
Ling was a rescue dog from the Toledo Humane Society and it's a question as to who rescued who.
Betty was born in Walbridge, OH on May 20, 1934, a daughter of the late Helen (Hoopes) and Charles Edwin Canoles. Her parents moved her to Minerva to be by her mother's family. She always talked about the trip and her family.
Betty met her husband Howard (she always called him Honey) when she was 15 years old. They were married Easter Sunday, April 9, 1950, and just celebrated 63 years of marriage (Everlasting Love).
Together they built Myers Construction and Concrete Business and their home. Betty also worked at Merit Plastics, Homestead Meats and Alliance Rubber while she raised five children.
Betty had a love for her Pekingese dogs, cooking, Lake Erie, Corvettes (she once owned a 1966 Bonneville), knitting, sewing, canning, her home and anything patriotic. After raising her children she completed her goal of earning her GED
Betty is survived by her husband of Howard Myers; daughter, Jean Louise Myers, of Paris, son, James Lee Roy Myers, of Minerva, son, Joseph Lynn Myers, of Cincinnati, daughter, Janet Leigh Simpson, of Louisville, daughter, Jamie Lou Taylor Campbell, of Louisville, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren; son-in-law Tom Taylor, nieces Diane Bailey and Mona Hines of Texas. She is preceded in death by her parents, a brother Chuck Canoles, a granddaughter Valeria Renee' Myers and her dogs Ming and Peling.
She is leaving to miss her terribly, her husband Howard, daughter Jean, her close companions, her dogs Ling (which never left her side) and granddoggies Ching and Brownie.
Private family services will be held at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made in Betty's and Ling's name to the Toledo Humane Society, 1920 Indian Wood Circle, Maumee, Ohio 43537
So long. See you later. Love, Honey.
Even death can't break the bonds of daughter and mother love. Love you forever. Love, Jean.
