Rosalee was born in Garnett, KS on January 16, 1938. Her parents were Ralph H. Sheern and Rose P. Clauser. Shortly after the observance of her 83rd birthday Rosalee left this good earth to be with her lord and savior on January 28, 2021.
She married her high school sweetheart, Ronald W. Myers on October 25, 1958. To this union of 63 years was born three children. Rosalee showered her love on the children and their spouses, Jennifer and Scott Duryea, Jeff and Deneil Myers, and Jerry and Judy Myers. She loved her six granddaughters, Callie (Bryan) Danner, Caitlin (Brandon) Walter, Taylor (Jacob) Rateliff, Jarae (Brenden) Myers-Lymon, Maria (Devin) Gorman, and Kara (Austin) Matthews. She was a mother and grandmother who was involved in her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren’s lives and cheered them on through their successes or disappointments in life. She made sure there was a Christmas stocking and a hug for everyone and later as our numbers grew the stockings gave way to sacks. She took great pride and enjoyment in her great grandchildren, Cash, Bentley, Bryndle, Finley, Norah, Easton, Ellie, Lucy, Judas, Kenzington and Kollins.
Rosalee was a stay-at-home mother in the children’s younger years and as they grew she began to work outside the home with secretarial duties at Jefferson Elementary in El Dorado, followed by life in Eureka where her husband’s employment was and a job as the secretary for Christ Lutheran Church. She continued to perform secretarial duties for Dennis Hanson, CPA when they moved back to Butler County.
She had a true volunteer’s heart and gave of herself to help others. She organized a food at a discount program called Heartland Share and managed that service while a member of Trinity Episcopal Church. She enjoyed a term of service on the altar guild at Trinity and sang in the church choir. Rosalee worked as a volunteer at the gift shop in Susan B. Allen Memorial Hospital and served as President of the hospital auxiliary for two terms from 2013 to 2015.
Rosalee loved to travel. Traveling with her husband to annual meetings of a marketing association or on bus trips with Village Tours she traveled to 24 states in America. She and her husband enjoyed a tour with friends to Switzerland and also a trip to Alaska where her sister lived at the time.
She was preceded in death by her mother, father, brothers Ralph, Jr. and Gene, and her sister Marilyn. She is survived by her brother, Pat Sheern.
We miss Rosalee and our lives will be blessed by memories of her!
