Rev. Marcelle G. Myers, 87, of St. Marys, made his transition Friday, Aug. 14, 2020, under the watch care of Southeast Georgia Health System, Camden and Brunswick campus.
He was born in St. Marys on Feb. 24, 1933, to the late Elmo Hill Myers and Muriel Williams. He is preceded in death by his wife of 70 years, Joyce T. Myers, Elmo V. Myers (brother), Howard L. Myers (brother), Gwen Thomas (sister), Cathy Richardson (daughter), Jerome Myers (son) and Avis Merritt (daughter).
He was a member of Greater Trinity United Methodist Church in St. Marys. He also served as a commercial fisherman and as a pastor on the Nahunta circuit.
Many friends and family members are reminded of how great of a cook he was. You could not visit his house without him offering you something to eat or a plate to take with you. He could cook and he could talk.
He is survived by nine children, Gordon (Shirley) Myers of Conyers, John (Mary) Furguson of Columbus, Darryl (Latoya) Furguson of St. Marys, Johnny (Ina) Myers of Atlanta, Gregory Myers of Jacksonville, Florida, Joan Myers of St. Marys, Irneatha Myers of Kingsland and Marcella Dawson of Kingsland; 41 grandchildren; 51 great-grandchildren; six great-great-grandchildren; 10 godchildren; and two brothers, Danny (Beverly) Myers of Mississippi and Carter (Yolanda) Myers of Mississippi; a host of nieces, nephews and cousins; godchildren, Kenneth Wilson, Nicole Lundie and Padrica J. Marshall; close friend of the family, Mrs. Laverne Marshall of Jacksonville and Mrs. Gerri Baker of St. Marys; and a host of other relatives and friends.
There will be no repass after service.
