Mrs. Shirley Hege Myers, 87, passed away Friday, March 17, 2023. She was born October 12, 1935, in Forsyth County to the late Russell and Catherine Hege. Many things brought Shirley joy in life, but nothing more than her love for the Lord. She enjoyed participating in her church, baking and cooking, tending to her flowers, spending time with her husband, and going to horse shows. She was humble, kind, and so thoughtful in the way she loved others. She treated everyone like family and truly made an impact on all who knew her. She retired from R.J. Reynolds with 35 years of service.

In addition to her parents, Shirley is preceded in death by her uncle and aunt, Preston and Thelma “Teenie” Hege, her aunts, Mildred and Margaret Snyder, her sister, Edna Hege Duren (John), and her niece, Kristen Duren. She is survived by her loving husband of 68 years, Kenneth Myers, and many people in her life (and their families) that meant the world to her, including Amy Myers Brooks, Melinda Burton, Debbie Cook, Nancy Curkendall, Marie Duren Eudy, Julie “Bud” Curkendall Forrest, Nancy Gentry, Randy Jones, Jennifer Curkendall Lawson, Bryan Myers, Lib Myers, Travis Myers, Marcelino Resendiz, and many other beloved friends and nieces and nephews.
