Obituary for Martha E. Myer

Martha E. Myer, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, age 87, passed peacefully from her home in Cocolamus, PA into the arms of Jesus on March 25, 2024. Martha was born on September 18, 1936, and grew up on a farm in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania during a time when life was much quieter, and simpler. That culture paved the
way for how she lived her life, in a quiet and simple way.
In the challenges that life brought to her, she always chose to trust her savior, Jesus Christ. This was even true of the last challenge that she faced, sickness and death. Her testimony was one of trusting Jesus for his timing, while basking in the love and peace that He was giving her in the transition from this life to being with Him. She was an inspiration to many in her life, not only her children and grandchildren, but that inspiration spilled out to friends, neighbors, and many others. No one ever doubted her love for God, and those she loved, never doubted that her love was genuine. Martha is predeceased by her parents, Frank and Mary (Harnish) Herr, 4 sisters, Mary Catherine Wenger (Merv), Grace Graybill (Paul), Lois Lowe (Elmer), Patricia Eby (Bob), and brother Harold, daughter in law, Betty Myer, and infant grandson, Curtis Gerber. She is survived by her husband, Wilmer, of nearly 68 years, 8 children, Glenn (Dianne) Myer, Judy (Abe) Krahn, Karen (Terry) Gerber, David (Laurie) Myer, Mark (Lois) Myer, Nathan (Sandee) Myer, Mariellen (Brent) Rosenberry, and Jesse (Carol) Myer, 36 grandchildren, 42 great-grandchildren, sister Miriam Kreider, and brothers, Donald Herr, Robert (Bob) Herr, and Jay Miller.
