Sharon Elaine Meyers, 80, of Peoria, IL, passed away at 9:21 am on January 5, 2023, at her home with her husband by her side.
She was born December 10, 1942, in Peoria, IL., to Gillem & Frances Wells, who preceded her in death along with her stepfather, Elmer Watchorn.
She is survived by her husband, Ronald Meyers, whom she married on September 11, 1982, in Pekin, IL. Also surviving: one Brother, Daniel Wells (Connie); Four children, Gregory Morris, Chris Morris, Patricia DeFrance, and Elizabeth Meyers-Honsman (Jeremy); Three step-children Ronald Meyers II, Karen Meyers, and Amanda Broughton (Jason); 13 grandchildren, and 20 great-grandchildren.
Sharon lived in California for a time, where she came to the lord and became a devout woman of God. After returning to Illinois, she worked in office administration until becoming a homemaker. She loved to sing and worship and was always involved in the church choir, Bible study groups, and prayer chains. It was not uncommon for her family to find her humming or singing her favorite hymns- a passion she gained from her mother, Frances, who would play the guitar and sing. They would often visit the elderly to share their beautiful harmony.
Sharon was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, and friend who will be dearly missed.
A memorial service will be held at Christ Followers Church 142 N. Main in North Pekin, Il. on Wednesday, January 11, 2023, at 3:00 pm, and will be officiated by her Pastors & friends, Mike & Lori Turner. Burial of her cremated remains will be held as an intimate ceremony at a later date. Flowers are appreciated, and donations can be accepted by Ronald Meyers to assist with her final expenses.
