It is with great sadness that School Days faces the loss of "Connie".
Personally, we were both on the board of directors at the South Side Senior
Center. She did many volunteer jobs there. I saw her there 2 to 4 days a
week, so the reality of her absence will hit me. She had died in her sleep
August 27, 2012....what a way to go.
Connie and I have worked on every reunion committee together with other
classmates since 1963 and just started planning the 60-yr. one for the fall of
We also enjoyed a monthly lunch with 10 or 12 other classmates, so there will
be an empty chair there, too.
I will just always treasure the memory of our times together. Pansy

spent most of her life in Springfield. Carolyn married Dale
Myers in Lebanon, Missouri on June 16, 1953, and to this
union two daughters were born, Rebecca and Tamara. She was
preceded in death by her parents; three sisters, Mary
Rosalee Foster, Betty Jean Grabast, and Martha Fisher; and
one brother, Robert McLemore. She is survived by her loving
and devoted husband of 56 years, Dale Myers; two daughters,
Rebecca Avila of Springfield and Tamara Myers and her
companion Jimmy Eagleburger of Willard; one grandson, Cody
Avila, whom she loved dearly; one sister, Virginia Wantland
and husband Edsel of Springfield; and many nieces and
nephews. Funeral services will be at 11:00 a.m., Thursday,
August 30, 2012 in Greenlawn Funeral Home North with burial
in White Chapel Memorial Gardens. The family will receive
friends from 10:00 a.m., until service time in the funeral
home. Memorial contributions may be made to the Southside
Senior Center. Carolyn, who was also lovingly referred to as
“Mom” and “Grandma” by her family and “Connie” by many of
her friends throughout her lifetime, will be greatly missed.
She truly leaves us with a great sadness and hole in our
hearts without her presence.
