Debra Lynn (Amuso) Myers, 68, of Fairmont, WV, formerly of Weirton, went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on June 8, after a three-and-a-half-year battle with ovarian cancer. She was born December 20, 1954, in Wheeling, WV to the late Frank and Isabelle (Tornifolio) Amuso. She is survived by her loving husband of 45 years, Richard “Dick” Alan Myers. She graduated from Brooke High School in 1973 and from West Liberty State College in 1977, graduating with highest honors, with a BA in Elementary education. She taught Elementary School in Hancock County for over 20 years. She was a member of the First Church of the Nazarene, where she enjoyed teaching Adult Sunday School, singing in the choir, and singing with her family. In addition to her husband, Debra is survived by her two sons, Christopher Myers and his wife Shelley of Fairmont, and Sean Myers and his wife Jessica of Findlay, OH. She is also survived by her sister Francine Spatafore and her husband Floyd of Fairmont, seven grandchildren, Denver, Suraya, Abigail, Zoe, Haylee, Chloe, and Adalynne, as well as a brother-in-law, Clarence Lawler.
