Marion L (Hope) Myers passed away in Casper, Wyoming on August 29, 2021 with her family by her side after a short illness. A private family memorial will be held at a later date.
Marion was born October 28, 1933 in Lacadena Sask, Canada and was the youngest child of G. Munro and Mabel (Anderson) Hope. She was raised on the family farm near Whitebear Sask, along with her two brothers, Munro and Bob; and sister, Joyce. She had many fond memories of life on the farm. In 1948 her parents retired from farming and moved to Saskatoon Sask where Marion attended high school and then Teachers College. Marion met her future husband, Norman Myers, in Saskatoon where he was enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force. They married on August 19, 1954. Marion taught for one year before marriage and two years after in small country schools, one year was 1st through 9th grade. (Quite a challenge.)
In 1956 Marion and Norman moved to Libby, Montana where their daughter Dianne was born and then on to Kalispell, Montana where their son David was born. Kalispell was their home for the next 60 years. Marion attended Flathead Valley Community College in Kalispell in 1968 to pursue an interest in computer programming and was then hired by the college first as a Programmer and then Department Manager. She then moved on to a private programming firm until retirement. It was a career she very much enjoyed.
Marion was a loving daughter, wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She traveled through the various stages of her life with a positive, sensible outlook, always able to provide sound advice. She had her share of health issues over the years and always prevailed with a positive “it’ll be okay, this too shall pass” attitude. She was a compassionate caregiver to Norman for 10 years after he had suffered a stroke.
In 2016 Marion moved to Casper, Wyoming and lived in the Primrose Retirement Community to be near her daughter and son. She very much enjoyed her Primrose home, the residents and caring staff.
Marion leaves behind her children Dianne (John) Stearns and David (Janet) Myers; grandchildren, Justin and Christopher Stearns; sister-in-law, Joyce Hope; and numerous very special nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband, Norman; parents Munro and Mabel Hope; brothers, Munro and Bob Hope; and sister, Joyce King.
She will be lovingly remembered and deeply missed! Heaven has gained a great soul!
