JACKIE MYERS

Jackie Myers, 72, passed away peacefully at her home in Lakeport, California, on January 23, 2011.

She is survived by her loving husband of 45 years, Phillip Myers of Lakeport; her son John Myers (Tamara) of Oakdale, California; daughter Debra Sommerfield (Rian) of Lakeport; son Kevin Myers (Daphne) of Elk Grove, California; and daughter Ann Myers of Burbank, California; and six grandchildren: Amanda, Jessica, Kylie, German, Katrina, and Shayna; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

She was born Jacqueline Raelene Araujo in Honolulu, Hawaii, in 1938. A true “island girl” and an artist from a young age, Jackie enjoyed painting with much of her work in oils and pastels, drawing inspiration from Hawaii’s beautiful flowers, beaches, and seascapes. Jackie attended Sacred Hearts Academy and Star of the Sea High School where she graduated as salutatorian in 1956. She attended the University of Hawaii and embarked on a career as a medical secretary/artist during which she sketched and colorized surgical procedures with intricate detail that could not be captured by the color photography of the time.

While working as an executive secretary in the early days of the computer industry, she met and fell in love with Phil, her “midwestern sweetheart.” They married and raised their young family on Oahu until a job relocation for Phil prompted the family to move to California’s Silicon Valley in 1974. A loving wife and mother, she devoted herself to her husband, her children, and her church where she actively contributed her time, energy, and creative talents at Saint Anthony’s Parish in Kailua, Hawaii; Saint Victor’s Parish in San Jose, California; and Saint Thomas More Catholic Community in Paradise, California.

Jackie continually nurtured her creative spirit as an avid crafter and Cub Scout den mother, as well as in her love of baking and her passion for travel. Together with her husband, she visited many historic and religious sites around the world. Once her children were of school age, Jackie returned to the workforce and enjoyed 12 years as office manager at Vinci Park School in San Jose. She and her husband retired in 2002 moving to Paradise, California, and subsequently, to Lakeport, California.

She was preceded in death by her mother and father, Sarah Araujo and Jacinth Araujo, and her brother, Jason Araujo.

Visitation will be held on Friday, January 28, 2011, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. with rosary at 7:00 p.m. at Chapel of the Lakes, 1625 North High Street, Lakeport. Funeral service will be held on Saturday, January 29, 2011, at 1:00 p.m. at Saint Mary Immaculate Catholic Church, 801 North Main Street, Lakeport. Interment will be at Saint Mary’s Catholic Cemetery in Lakeport.

Memorial contributions may be made to CurePSP to fund research for a cure for progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), as well as physician education and caregiver support, by visiting www.curepsp.org and identifying the donation “in memory of The Jackie Myers Family Fund.”
