Mrs. Myers was born on April 3, 1959, in Prentiss to Eddie Gene and Martha Nell Baylis Douglas.  Becky, as she was affectionately known, truly exemplified the words of Jesus in Matthew 25:40 “Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of my brethren, ye have done it unto me”.  In addition to serving in missions in Mexico, she also served as “Mom” to many through her tireless ministry at Castalian Springs Retreat in Durant and also at the Salvation Army.  Having a nurturing spirit, Becky received an abundance of joy in caring and feeding those that she came in contact with.  For over 20 years, she served as a Licensed Practical Nurse in those medical facilities of the locales where she and her husband, Tim ministered.  Presently, she was a member of Christ Congregational Church in Johns where her husband serves as Pastor.
