Dorothy Louise Myers

December 18th, 1930November 1st, 2022

Dorothy Myers of Boulder died on Tuesday, November 1, 2022, at Frasier Meadows Retirement Community in Boulder.  She was 91 years old.

Dorothy was born in Kevin, Montana to James and Gladys (Nolan) McDermott.  She grew up in Cut Bank, Montana and entered the Columbus School of Nursing in Great Falls, Montana in 1949, graduating in 1952.  She then lived and worked as a nurse in Montana, Arizona, and Washington before returning to Billings, Montana in 1956 and marrying John Myers the following year.  After their wedding the couple moved to Bozeman, Montana.  Dorothy left nursing in 1959 in order to start raising a family.  In 1960 there was a short stint in Whittier, California before the family settled in Boulder in 1961.

Dorothy spent many years volunteering in Boulder, where she donated her time to Bear Creek Elementary School, the Nurse’s Office at Fairview High School, the Boulder Community Hospital Auxiliary, and her church, St. Martin de Porres Catholic Church, where she was a very active member.

Dorothy was a thoughtful, caring, generous, warm, and witty person.  She was the world’s best nurse – you definitely wanted her taking care of you if you were sick.  She was also an incredible baker who treated her family and friends to many delicious desserts over the years.  Dorothy will be greatly missed by all.

Dorothy was preceded in death by her husband, John D. Myers, and son, John D. Myers, Jr.  She is survived by her children Jane Myers (Mark Nass) of Louisville, Charlotte Parker (Alan) of Arvada, Tom Myers (Jean Lesnick) of Columbus, Ohio, grandchildren Jared, Sam, and Matt, and two great-grandchildren.

A rosary is planned for 10:00 AM on Monday, November 7 at St. Martin de Porres Catholic Church, located at 3300 Table Mesa Drive in Boulder, followed by a funeral mass to be held at 10:30 AM.  A luncheon in the church hall will follow.

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to St. Labre Indian School in Ashland, Montana. (www.stlabre.org).
