Muriel L. Meyers, (Nan), 93 of Pittsburgh, PA and Marco Island, Florida, left us to join the Lord peacefully on February 28, 2019, surrounded in the love of her children.
She was born August 31, 1925, in Steubenville, Ohio, a daughter of the late Walter W. and Mary (Miller) Layfield. She lived a rich life, filled with love and joy; she was a unique and caring individual who touched the lives of all who knew her.
Muriel was a determined daughter, wife, mother, and homemaker. She worked in many diverse fields, including as a Navy ship welder, an MGM ticket taker, at Wholey's Market in the prepared foods area, a data processing manager at ADP, a unit clerk at Divine Providence Hospital, and a Secretary for Judge Henry Ellenbogen of Allegheny County Common Pleas Court in Pittsburgh, all while raising her children. Nan was a hard worker and instilled this in her children as well. She loved good food and socializing and had a wonderful smile that could light up a room. She was an avid reader, a lover of her furry felines and had an amazing green thumb growing a garden of indoor plants year round.
Preceded in death by her first husband, William Berman and her second husband, Albert Meyers; her sisters Grace Shockey; Mary Cochrane, Patricia Haines; Frances Berman and her brother, Walter Layfield, her daughter in law Cathy Meyers and her grandson, Demetrius Vari. Loved ones that will miss Muriel until they meet again are her children, Barbara Stanko, of Pittsburgh, William (Marie) Zalfini, of Penn Hills, Marilyn Ferraro, of Bethel Park, Daniel Berman (Colleen Keller) of Gibsonia, Pamela Campbell, of Lancaster along with her step-children, Albert Meyers, of Monroeville, James Meyers, of Burgettstown, and Kenneth Meyers, of Pittsburgh; as well as her sisters Jane Olejniczak and Esther Galayda, of Pittsburgh.
Muriel’s grandchildren were her heart and joy, there’s no denying that. Her grandbabies as she called them were the people that she loved with abandon and they will carry on the legacy of love that she has shared with each of them no matter the distance or time that they were apart. They are, Archie McConnell, Dominic McConnell, Kevin McConnell, Kelly McConnell-Myers (Brie), Anastasia Alexander (Loni), John Castellano, Beau Berman, Rhys Munro, Natalie Munro, Adam Munro, Ciara Salvini (John), Larissa Hoffman (Dan), Gabriel Zalfini (Emilie), Meghan Meyers, Alexander Meyers, Spencer Meyers, Nash Meyers, Albert Meyers III, Kelsey Meyers and Mary Meyers. Her great-grandchildren include Gabriel, Cody, Katlyn, Gabriana, Nico, Alena, Piper, Harper, Kennan, Gavin, Jayden, Jake, Jasmine, Emmitt, and Olivia.
When our loved ones become memories, our memories become treasure.
