Lois Myers, age 90, passed away Saturday, September 10, 2022. She was preceded in death by her husband of over 60 years Carl Myers, her parents Otha McClure and Mae McCampbell, brothers Roy, Ralph, Mayford, Carl and Jim McClure, sister Wanda Brickhouse, daughter Mavis and great-grandson Tyler Bowman. Survivors include brothers Bob and Jerry McClure, daughters and sons-in-law Debbie and Danny Muse, Gana and Tim Smith, son and daughter-in-law Carl and Mary Myers, six grandchildren: Denise Walkingstick, Chris and Jennifer Muse, David Myers, Hunter and Zach Smith, four great-grandchildren: Brodie Bowman, Zoey and Zane Muse and Aspen Price, special grand-daughter Shawna Shahangian. According to “Granny Lois”, she was born in a house on the side of a mountain somewhere in the Walden’s Creek area of Sevier County on June 7, 1932. On April 1, 1950, she married her life-long partner Carl Myers who was from Townsend, TN. After a hard-scrabble beginning to their marriage, Carl became employed by the National Park Service in Cades Cove. In 1965 they were transferred to the Oconaluftee side of the park outside of Cherokee, NC. There they resided until 1983 when they moved to their last home in the Toot Hollow neighborhood in Bryson City, NC. Anyone who ever had the pleasure of meeting Lois might lovingly describe her larger-than-life personality as a unique mixture of carnival barker and pitbull. She never met a stranger and was always laughing and was never at a loss for words; she definitely “called ’em as she seen ’em.” Lois will be strongly missed by all those fortunate enough to have been a part of her friends and family network and will be remembered for living a meaningful and very worthwhile life.
