HELENE GIRSON MYERS: of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Palm Beach, Florida, adored wife of the late Morton Myers, passed away peacefully, surrounded by love on Mother's Day, May 12, 2024. Beloved mother of Jaymi Myers-Newman (Kenneth T. Newman); cherished grandmother of Grant Newman, Cole Newman, and Heath Newman. She was preceded in death by her son, the late Craig Myers, her parents, the late Harry and Lillian Ohringer Girson, and her brother, the late Ronald Girson.  Helene was proud to have been born and raised in Squirrel Hill and gave that same childhood to her own children. She loved her daily walks through her neighborhood, stopping "upstreet" to chat along the way. She had enormous empathy, a vivid imagination, a quick laugh, and a generous spirit. Helene was a great beauty. She modeled in Pittsburgh and New York, was the Dapper Dan Girl, and Miss Pittsburgh.  After graduating from the University of Pittsburgh, she taught second grade at Wightman School. She went on to own and operate a gift shop called Knock on Wood on Walnut Street in Shadyside. Helene loved her family, and she loved the movies.  There was not a movie that she did not see. Oscar Night was her big event. But to her family, she was always the real star. She always will be. Friends may meet at Ralph Schugar Chapel, Inc., 5509 Centre Avenue, Shadyside, on Tuesday, May 14, 2024 at 12 Noon and then proceed to Homewood Cemetery for 1 PM Graveside Services.

Send Condolence

The Myers family used to live a few doors down from me on Beeler Street. I delivered newspaper to them as a teenager. They were lovely, gracious people. My sincere condolences to the family.
