Janet Lynne (Matsik) Myers, 76, of Spring Creek, passed away Sunday, March 22, 2015, at Corry Memorial Hospital after a lengthy illness.  

Lynne was born July 3, 1938, in Pittsburgh, Pa., a daughter of the late George and Janet (Wright) Matsik.

She is survived by her loving husband of 49 years, Dr. Charles S. Myers, whom she married May 15, 1965, in Pittsburgh; her children, Carol Rickerson of Youngsville, Cathy (Steve) Frederick of Pittsburgh, Chris Myers of Youngsville, Cassandra “Sandy” (George) Traut of Warren, Charmaine “Stacey” (Justin) Ingram of Irvine and Charles “Chuck” (Kendra) Myers III of New Hampshire; her siblings, GA (Allison) Matsik of Florida, Suska Matsik of Massachusetts and Gary (Doriean) Matsik of Massachusetts; her grandchildren, Casey (Chelsea) Rickerson, Ryan Rickerson, Corey (Krista) Traut, Kyle Traut, Noah Myers, Chaz Myers, Jacob Myers and Brandon Myers; seven great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, Lynne is preceded in death by her first husband, Patrick Sheehy; three infant daughters at birth; and her son-in-law, Rob Rickerson.
Lynne owned and operated two gift shops, The Train Station in Pittsburgh and Two Steps Up in Warren, complete with a "grandma’s corner" to play and read with children. She was employed by the Warren County commissioners as an environmental community resource consultant and later as a volunteer coordinator at RSVP.

Lynne had a fierce passion for her family, the arts and the environment. Volunteering was what she did best —  always fighting for what was right or for people who could not fight for themselves.
She was a member of many groups: the Warren County Garden Club, the Warren County Art League, Corry Artists’ Guild, SCA, Red Hat Society, St. Francis ECW, Brokenstraw Watershed Council and Toastmasters International. She helped bring Y-Teens to Youngsville. She helped bring awareness to Bonnie BlueBird and helped form Allegheny Artistry in Youngsville to showcase local artisans.
She was chairwoman of a group of local citizens that helped clean up a PCB dump site over Youngsville's water supply. She helped people of Cobham Park get clean water. She worked on the Warren County Bear Project and with producing a play with Youngsville youth called "We Are Your Future.”
She helped coordinate a Warren County health study to determine why we had such a high rate of Down syndrome. She, along with fellow artists, held numerous classes and exhibits to continue arts in the area and with our youth. One program was to help relieve stress for displaced workers and/or military veterans and their families. She helped bring a traveling Art Train exhibit to Warren. She helped spray local elm trees against disease and started a monthly community outreach dinner at St. Francis. Lynne enjoyed traveling to Portugal to visit with friends and trips to Cape Cod to visit her family. She always invited anyone who was alone on a holiday to her dinner table. She was a wonderful cook and enjoyed decorating her table like a piece of art. Her talents and traditions live on in her children as she taught them all to be independent thinkers and always stand up for what's right and help whomever and wherever there is a need .

Friends will be received on Friday, March 27, at St. Francis of Assisi Episcopal Church in Youngsville, from 1 to 3 p.m., at which time a memorial service will take place with the Rev. Matthew Scott, pastor of St. Francis of Assisi Episcopal Church, officiating.

The family suggests memorial donations be made to the Warren County Art League Scholarship Fund, PO Box 125, Warren, PA 16365; Miracle Mountain Ranch: 101 Rodeo Drive, Spring Creek, PA 16436. St. Francis of Assisi Episcopal Church, 343 E. Main St., Youngsville, PA 16371; or the Corry Artists’ Guild Scholarship Fund, PO Box 350, Corry, PA 16407.

My heart aches today thinking that I will never see my friend Lynne again. We met in Washington DC many years ago and our personalities just clicked. I roomed with her while attending an environmental conference and we had such great fun laughing and cutting up. She loved my southern accent and I loved her PA charm. RIP my dear friend. Peace and love always to Lynne's great family. Peggy Frankland, Sulphur, LA

Dr. Myers and Chris, I am so sorry for your loss. I met Lynne years ago when she was doing home jewelry shows. She was so easy to talk with and made me feel special. I know where Chris gets her gentleness and sincerity.
May perpetual light shine upon Lynne and may she rest in peace.

I was so saddened when I read about Lynne. She was the most lovely Lady and human being I have ever known...I always loved being around her. I especially remember the fun times we had at the River House. I love people that have a passion, and she had many. God bless her soul. My sincere condolences to Chuck and family.

Dear Chuck and children, Bill and I saw the announcement of Lynne's death just as we were leaving for some work for Bill on the Jefferson County bench and a direct trip to Cleveland where I had my annual National History Day duties, so we could not be with you for the wake and funeral. We are so sorry for your loss. What a team you two have made, and what a family! Our common Pittsburgh roots brought Lynne and I together, cemented by living in Pittsfield outskirts, the creation of the old Pittsfield Road playground, the Art Train in Warren, and Robert H. Jackson in Spring Creek, and our fun and successful trip to Harrisburgh to honor him. Lynne was such a doer, and an inspiration to the rest of us to at least try. She will be a huge miss to the whole community, and a hole in all of your hearts, but remember the inspiration part--she will want you to continue to be interested in all of her endeavors, and get the 'grands' on board. Love and Prayers, Peggy and Bill Morgan

Dear Chuck and family,
I know that your hearts must be broken on the recent passing of your beloved wife and mother. I'm so sorry. Please know, she was truly a gift to anyone lucky enough to of known her. She was the kindest, most caring person there was, and processed a passion and wisdom so strong, its reserved only for the most deserving that walk among us. Once, twenty years ago at my fortieth birthday party, she said before the group, "life is a like a fine fabric who's each and every thread represented all the wonderful people we encounter as we go" I cannot imagine the countless lives enriched by this great lady who left everyone and everything she touched better than when she found it. I will always love you and miss you Lynn. God Bless, and may you Rest In Piece
