Mayme Marie Green Myers Omohundro, 99, died Wednesday, Jan. 23, at home at The Hillcrest in Loveland, Colo. She died of natural causes with her daughter, Tena, at her side.
Marie was born on Nov. 13, 1913, in Corsicana, the oldest child of Grover Green and Margaret Montgomery Green. Grover, a concrete contractor, moved the family several times including a move by covered wagon to Oklahoma. When Marie was in her teens, Margaret was widowed and Marie helped to raise her two sisters Louise and Patsy.
Marie completed her education as an X-ray and medical laboratory technician and worked in the medical field her entire career.
She married Richard Myers, DVM, in 1946 and was married to Dick for 50 years until his death. They had two children, John Myers and Tena Myers Trimble.
Marie retired as office manager for Roy Hill, MD, in 1989 in Baton Rouge. She and Dick later moved to Wylie, close to Tena and her family. She later lived with them until she reconnected with an old family friend Gene Omohundro, also a veterinarian, and in 2003 they were married in Sun City West, Ariz., and she lived there until Gene’s death in 2010.
In January 2011 Marie was one of the first residents in the new wing at The Hillcrest, close to Tena in Loveland and enjoyed her life there until her passing. She loved the staff there and was active in the many activities available at the facility.
Raised in the Christian Church, she was baptized at an early age. Unable to participate in church in her later years, she knew that she would be seeing Jesus soon.
Known for her culinary talents, she enjoyed cooking for family and friends. Known also for her humor, she usually had everyone around her laughing.
Marie is survived by her sister, Patsy Rittenhouse; son, John; daughter, Tena Trimble and her husband Chuck; as well as grandsons: Richard Myers, Evan Myers and his wife Allison, Tommy Trimble and Frankie Trimble and his wife Kristin; four great-grandchildren, Laura Myers, Jacob Myers, Faith Myers and Andi Myers. She is also survived by the many wonderful caregivers that were constantly at her side at The Hillcrest.
She loved her dogs and had many over the years. Her favorite breed was the pug, and she had several stuffed animal pugs on her bed in her final days.
The memorial service was held Saturday 3 p.m. at The Hillcrest in the theater room in the lower level. The Hillcrest is located at 535 Douglas Ave, Loveland, Colo. Allnutt Funeral Home is handling her final arrangements. Her ashes will be interred at the Wylie Cemetery in Wylie.
