Dorothy Lou (Williams) Meyers, 75, of McMechen passed away at Wheeling Hospital surrounded by her family and loved ones on Feb 15th 2022.

Born on December 2nd, 1946, Dorothy is the daughter of the late Thomas Williams Sr. and Clara Belle Williams of Wheeling.

In addition to her parents, Dorothy was preceded in death by her loving husband, Carl P.L. Meyers, of McMechen; her brother Thomas Williams Jr., of McMechen; her Brother-in-Law Robert C. Meigh, of Glen Dale; and great-nephew Alex Meigh of Woodsfield.

After graduating from Wheeling High School in 1964, she and her twin sister Doris (Williams) Meigh worked at Continental Can in Wheeling. She met her late husband and married on October 23, 1971, and the pair had two beautiful and successful daughters, Carla (Meyers) Harris, a Registered Nurse at East Ohio Regional Hospital, and Candi Meyers, an Active Duty Coastguardsmen stationed in Washington DC. After a long career at Tri-State Machine, Carl retired in 1997. Dorothy decided he was at home way too much and realized she needed to get out of the house. She became employed at Oglebay Resort, where she worked with some amazing people who became life-long best friends, to include Patty White and Diane Gamble. She retired from Oglebay in 2013. After the passing of her beloved husband in 2017, Dorothy was able to find love again in long-time family friend Richard “Dick” Conway, who loved and cherished her dearly.

She was a beloved wife, mother, sister, daughter, and grandma, who will be incredibly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her. One of her especially cherished roles was that of Grandma. On November 29th of 2011, her daughter Carla gave birth to Bowen Riley Harris, her first grandson, and boy did that kid bring out the youth in her, and she surely spoiled him rotten.

Dorothy was also a great friend, and always the life of the party. She will be dearly missed by all of her friends at Embers Lounge, and her best friend Patty Warble, who was more like a sister than friend. An avid animal lover, she also deeply cherished the dogs and cats that were in her care; Oreo, Koa, Alfie, and Rosie.

Dorothy is survived by her sister Doris (Williams) Meigh; her daughters Carla (Sean) Harris, Candi Meyers; her grandson Bowen Riley Harris; grandaughter Amber Harris, and great grandchildren; her sister-in-law Linda Beaty (Thomas Williams Jr.), her nephews Alan (Cindy) Meigh, and Justin (Debbie) Meigh; and numerous other cousins, nieces, and nephews too many to name.

Friends and family will be received on Friday, February 25, 2022 from 5-8 pm at Altmeyer Funeral Home, Benwood-McMechen Chapel, 214 Marshall Street, McMechen. Services will be held on Saturday February 26, 2022 at 11 am with Dr. Rev. Mitch Johnston officiating. All are welcome! Interment will be held at the convenience of the family.
