Obituary For Nora Evelyn Myers

MYERS, Nora Evelyn of Ship Harbour, Eastern Shore passed away on May 28, 2023 at Twin Oaks Memorial Hospital, Musquodoboit Harbour.
She was the daughter of Martin and Thelma Marks.

At the young age of 16 she moved to Halifax to study as an office administrator.It was around that time that she met the love of her life, Peter, on one of her visits home to Ship Harbour. They married in September 1955.As a young couple with two small boys, they headed off for new adventures in New Brunswick and later in Ontario.

Nora would always work at civil administration payroll positions. After several years she and Peter worked their way back to Nova Scotia with their two boys, now young men.

Nora would remain in administration work for the rest of her working life, never missing a day.

Nora was also a devoted student of Christian Science and would become a nurse and practitioner.

She loved helping people and was a devoted gardener and true to her words.

Nora remained a loving mother and grandmother until her passing.

She will be greatly missed by her 2 sons Brad (wife Hattie); Brian and daughter-in-law Laura Russell. She is also survived by her grandsons, Luke, Daniel, Sean and Trevor and great-grandson, Tyson.

Cremation has taken place and a memorial service will take place at St. Stephen's Anglican Church, Ship Harbour at a later date.

A special thank you to Karen Webber and the wonderful staff at Twin Oaks Memoria Hosptial.

    Nora was such a precious member of our Christian Science church community. She brought such grace, wisdom, humour and insight to our services and meetings. I loved my conversations with her as I heard about her life with Peter, her childhood and about her boys and daughters-in-laws. One whom she proudly introduced me to when I was out at Whistler for work. I loved talking about gardening with Nora, her fairy houses and her love for nature. Every conversation was a Soul deep uplift. And then there was her wonderful work that she did as a Christian Science Nurse across the country. You are such a light Dear Nora! My love and that of our whole church community to Nora's family.
