There are condolences waiting approval on CAROL's Tribute wall

Carol Jane Myers, age 86, of Republic, Missouri, passed away on Saturday evening, July 21, 2018, in Cox South Hospital, Springfield, Missouri. She was born on August 5, 1931, in her grandfather’s home in Adair, Iowa. Carol was the youngest of three children of the late Jay David and Helen Elizabeth (Barney) McCullough.

Carol graduated in 1949 from the Norwalk High School, Norwalk, Iowa.

Carol met her future husband, Keith Myers, while skating with her girlfriends, and they were married on August 3, 1952, in Iowa. To this union were two children, David and Kathleen. Moving from Iowa to Southern Missouri in 1960, they owned and managed several businesses in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Later, Carol worked in sales positions, partially in Insurance sales. Carol and Keith went on to be married 50 years, before Keith passed away on May 7, 2003. Carol loved her family, especially as it continued to grow with grandchildren and a great granddaughter.

Carol was a member of the Hurley United Methodist Church and attended the Hood United Methodist in Republic, while living with her son. She enjoyed being active in the Women’s Conferences and other church events.

She had many friends in her Red Hat Clubs, with so many memories of fun times and plenty of red and purple scarfs and hats.

Carol enjoyed traveling, taking many trips across the United States, in all directions. Her and Keith took a special trip to Europe, seeing all the major sites. After Keith’s death, Carol made a solo trip to Ireland to see her Dad’s ancestral roots. Finding a direct relative was exciting to Carol and her family.

She is survived by her son, David (Joann) Myers, Republic, Mo.; her daughter, Kathleen (Thomas) Warren, Renton, Wash.; three grandchildren, Stephanie (Aaron) Grandestaff, Ozark, Mo., Thomas Allen, Jr. (Jessica) Warren, Irving, Texas, and Andrew Myers, Republic, Mo.; and the latest addition, great granddaughter, Molly Grandestaff, Ozark, Mo.

A funeral service for Carol will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 28, 2018 in Hood United Methodist Church, Republic, under the direction of Meadors Funeral Home, Republic. Burial will follow the service in Mt. Carmel Cemetery, Clever, Mo. Family and friends may share online condolences on this website, at
