Shari A. Myers (pronounced 'Shoddi' because it's a Hungarian name and the 'r' is rolled), the mom, the myth, the legend peacefully died at her home in Newbury, Ohio on Monday, January 23, 2023 after a recent recurrence of the 'C' word. Shari was born September 9, 1938 in Lorain, to the late (and great!) Thomas and Julia (nee Csutoras) Urban.
Shari was an avid movie star and music fan. At one point John Derek, the movie star, kissed her hand and she did not wash it for well over a week. She was the President of the Ray Richards Fan Club and he named his record label after her 'Shari Records.' His 45-rpm record was red in honor of Shari's beautiful red hair.
Shari was a 1956 graduate of Lorain High School and a 1959 graduate of St. Joseph Hospital School of Practical Nursing in Lorain. Shortly after graduating from nursing school, she married and soon moved to Elyria. Shari raised her children in Elyria and then moved to Cleveland Heights, Solon and eventually Newbury because she wanted to be near her children. While residing in those areas, she worked for many years at CVS pharmacy in Solon until retirement. She was an amazing cook and baker. She was well-known for her delicious cheesecakes. She baked cheesecakes for people she loved and she loved many. Post retirement, you could find her hanging out with family and friends. Anyone who was blessed to know her knew her door was ALWAYS open and, in her presence, she cast her loving spell upon you, of which you could never forget.
Shari was preceded in death by her parents and her sister, Susan E. Johnson.
She will be missed by her children, Derek M. Myers of Newbury, Julie Vella of Willoughby Hills, Anne (James 'Jimmy') Gallagher of Newbury, David T. Myers (aka King of the world) of Montville and Suzanne (Keith) Borders of Cleveland Heights. Her grandchildren were a big part of her life. She will be greatly missed by Candice Calhoun of Connecticut, Elliot Calhoun of Virginia, Kyle Borders and Jules Borders of Cleveland Heights and Logan Myers of North Canton. Shari has three great-grandchildren, Dimitrry and Olivia of Connecticut and Hudson of Virginia, who loved her visits. She is also survived by many, many cousins.
Family and Friends will have a private gathering at a later date.
Shari would hope everyone will remember her by her love of family, friends and fun. If you were lucky enough to know Shari, you were lucky enough!
