Susan A. (Evensen) Myers

Family & friends are invited to attend visiting hours on Sunday, January 7th from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the Vertuccio & Smith, Home for Funerals, 773 Broadway (Rte. 107), REVERE, for Susan Ann (Evensen) Myers, who passed away on Saturday, December 30th at Boston’s Brigham & Women’s’ Hospital, ending a valiant & dignified struggle with multiple myeloma. Her funeral will be conducted from the funeral home on Monday, January 8th at 11 a.m., followed by a Funeral Mass in the Immaculate Conception Church (Corner of Beach St. & Winthrop Ave.) REVERE at 12 Noon.

Born & raised in Medford & Winchester, she lived in Winchester until marrying, 35 (thirty-five) years ago, & moving to Revere. Susan would marry,  on June 13, 1982, Michael P. Myers, Sr., one of the Myers Brothers, who owned & operated “Reliable Heating & Appliance” of Revere. An alumna of Winchester High School, Class of 1974, she was also an alumna of Mt. Ida College, Class of 1976. Later, she attended the School of Liberal Arts at Boston College. Susan’s involvement with Immaculate Conception Parish Community was intense with the school, where her two children attended. Her late son, Michael P. Myers, Jr., while an elementary student, was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy & succumbed to the complications arising from that disease when he was only 14 years old in May of 2002. The Family Nucleus (Susan, Michael Sr., Sister, Colleen & Gram Evensen) became “Michael’s Team” & soon became a beacon of inspiration to be emulated in the face of sadness & tragedy. That same intense devotion to family arose again, when Susan received her diagnosis several years ago. Susan continued at her position at Lahey Clinic as Principal Patient Advocate until a month ago. She began her career at Lahey over twenty-one years ago as a Manager in Medical Records. In the late 1980s & all through the nineties, she was most active in Immaculate Conception Parish with all school projects, fundraising and anywhere a hand was needed. She is especially remembered for her part in the organization of the many fall bazaars.

Besides her beloved husband of 35 years, Michael P. Sr., she is the devoted mother of Colleen A. Myers of Point of Pines, Revere & the late Michael P. Myers, Jr. She is the adored daughter of Susan Ann (Wilson) Evensen of Revere & the late, Roy A. Evensen. She is also the dear sister to Roy W. Evensen of Sarasota, Florida & Richard A. Evensen of Boise, Idaho. She was the daughter-in-law to the late, William “Sonny” Myers & the late Margaret “Sis” (O’Brien) Myers. She is also lovingly survived by her in-laws, the Myers Family of the North & South Shores, many nieces, nephews & cousins. Entombment at the Woodlawn Chapel Columbarium will be held privately.

    I am saddened to learn of Susan’s passing. I am a patient at Lahey and on more than one occasion Susan and I spoke on the phone, in length, about my concerns with issues I had about my care and problems I encountered there. She was the perfect patient’s advocate. I felt as if I had known her all my life when we spoke. I know she will be truly missed by all.. May she rest in peace.
