MYERS, another old time resident of Winona, a lifetime spent in Shannon Co., passed away Saturday at his home. The MYERS raised a fine large family, most of whom live close by. One reason for the success of the MYERS family is that Mom and Pop MYERS were never too busy to listen to problems their family came up against, or to help solve the problems. Families who pray together-stay together. May God bless this family, and help them as they struggle through life without the guidance of their father.  Sources for this information: Copy The Current Wave.
