Ila Margaret "Peggy" Myers (1922-2018)

Mom was born in Fillmore on May 23, 1922. She was born to William Crowner and Pearl Oliver Crowner. She lived in Fillmore until the second grade, when the family moved to Ojai for 4 years. They returned to live in Bardsdale where she attended Bardsdale Elementary School. Mom graduated from Fillmore High School in 1940. She then attended Ventura College where she received a teaching credential.
Mom married her high school sweetheart Carl Myers in 1942. Carl enlisted in the Army Air corps shortly thereafter where he became a B-24 pilot. Mom followed him in the service until he was deployed to England. She then returned to Bardsdale where their daughter Terri Ann was born in 1944. When Carl returned home from overseas they remained in Fillmore, where he became a partner in the oilfield and ranch supply company of Crowner and Myers. In 1956 their son Jim was born. Peggy was a stay at home mom until 1964 when she went to work as a teacher’s aide and substitute teacher for the Fillmore School District. Later she became a teacher at the Boswell School for Developmentally Disabled Children. Later Carl became a Real Estate Agent in Fillmore.
Peggy was an active member in the Fillmore Order of Eastern Star, Fillmore Ebell Club, and of the Fillmore Church of Religious Science. She always saw the good in each person and in every situation. Many times mom would say it is all good. Mom loved to play bridge, a good shopping trip, and any opportunity to go out to eat. Most of all she loved her family, her children, grandchildren, her great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. She also loved her caregiver Aracely who gave her wonderful loving care for over 12 years. After retirement mom and dad were able to travel extensively and had a wonderful time doing it.
Mom passed away peacefully at home with her family nearby on February 21, 2018. Mom was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Carl, her granddaughter DeAnna and son in law Mike. Mom is survived by her daughter Terri Hastings, her son Jim Myers (wife Janet), Grandchildren Derrik Hastings (wife Michelle), Melanie Myers Hazlett (husband Chad) and Great grandchildren Joslynn, Charlie, Jordan, Griffin and Felicia.
Mom will be greatly missed here on earth but we will be happy to see her again in the hereafter.
