Mora Struble Meyers was born in Mercer, Pennsylvania. She passed away in Huntington Park, California. She was my grandmother.
Her siblings included Mary, David and ___________.
She was married to John James Meyers (b. 05/05/1884 - d. 10/21/1930) who preceded her in death. She had a son, John James Meyers (b. 01/20/1920 - d. 01/06/1979), and a daughter, Jean Elizabeth Meyers (b. 05/16/1916 - d. 1985).
During the Depression, she worked as a janitress in a theater. She also worked as a nurse at the State Hospital for the Criminally Insane. Additionally, she was employed as a nurse at the Polk State School (for mentally challenged students).
Mora was a generous, loving, kind person. Even when she was elderly and suffering the effects of arthritis, she would present her guests a wonderful roast beef dinner on Sunday.
Mora had a dog that she loved dearly named Ginger. Ginger was an Irish setter/mix. Mora would often recall to guests that Ginger "said her prayers" at night, lying with her head down between her paws.
One of the things I remember vividly is that while other people's Christmas poinsettia plants wilted and died in the pots, even before Christmas had come, her poinsettias remained fresh and lovely, and after Christmas, she would plant them in her backyard and they would thrive, growing into very large bushes!
She was fiercely loyal to her family, and protected her family members.
Crocheting, rug-making, and embroidery were among her many talents. She also quilted by hand and sewed. She was a marvelous cook, and made the most marvelous salad dressing entirely from scratch. Her salad dressing was so fabulously good that she could have bottled it and called it "Mora's Own." She made a beautiful glass-beaded handbag
with a pattern of roses, petals and leaves, still in the possession of her family. These were quite popular in the early 1900s.
She is survived by her four grandchildren, Richard Meyers, Margaret Phipps, Lisbeth Harrell, and Steven Meyers.
Mora's sweetness, loving kindness, patience and endurance will never be forgotten.
