Susan Jane Meyers

August 9, 1948 - June 2, 2024

Susan Jane Meyers, 75, of Waynesboro, VA died Sunday, June 2, 2024.  She was born August 9, 1948 in Toledo, Ohio to the late Raymond J. Preski, Sr. and Audrey M. Preski.

“Sue’s” family moved to Chicago in 1950 and it was in Illinois that she spent her formative and most of her teenage years.  

Friends and family will remember Sue as a beautiful, warm, compassionate soul; a person whose company you enjoyed.  She had so many wonderful attributes.  She loved sports and enjoyed them as a youth and adult.  She played golf, tennis, and league bowling.  She was an adventurous soul.  While still a teenager, and against her parent’s wishes, she and a friend made a trip to San Francisco and Haight-Ashbury.  They survived but could only afford a bus trip home to New York.  

Sue was a life-long dog lover.  She adored her canine family members.  She loved gardening and was extremely proud of the size and taste of her Arizona homegrown lemons and grapefruits.  

Sue was an excellent cook.  Cooking was one of her passions.  She amazed family and friends with her gourmet skills.

Above all, Sue will be remembered for her compassion and generosity.  Always family oriented, she was ever-willing to help out her nieces, nephews, and other family members.

Sue was an extremely hard working, dependable individual with a very strong work ethic.  She started her work history at age fourteen while in high school during summers.  Her last position, from which she retired, was with Charles Schwab as an Executive Administrative Assistant in Phoenix, AZ.  Other employers include Electra Watch Company, Revlon, Hudson’s Department Store, and Comerica Bank where she advanced from teller to Assistant Manager.

Surviving relatives include her brother, R.J. Preski; sister, Ann Fleming; uncles, Thomas and James Connors; uncle, Leonard and aunt, Judith Malec; several nephews, nieces; and grandnephews and grandnieces.  Also surviving are her step in-laws from her marriage to the late James A. Meyers.

The family wishes to give a heartfelt thank you to the Waynesboro Police Department and Rescue Squad team.  We also very much appreciate the compassion shown us by the Augusta Health Center Emergency staff.  Also, we appreciate very much the compassionate professionalism of McDow Funeral Home.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to Feed the Children and/or the ASPCA, or your local animal shelter in the name of Sue’s late beloved doggie, Maggie Mae.
