Obituary of Agnes Meyers
Agnes Mary (Kowalski) Meyers now rests in peace, reunited with the love of her life, her husband of 62 years, Donald Howard Meyers. She was born on January 27, 1932 in Rome, NY. She was the second of five children born to Stephen and Mary (Schram) Kowalski. Agnes and Don were married on June 24, 1950 and made their home in Camden for 52 years.
For 30 years Agnes and Donald owned and operated Meyers Chocolates in Camden, NY. Before opening Meyers Gift and Chocolate World with Don, Agnes independently owned and operated Meyers Home for the Aged in Camden from 1960 to 1975 and a hair salon in downtown Camden from 1975 to 1983. She was a devout Catholic and member of St. John the Evangelist Church in Camden.
She loved and cherished her family more than anything. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, and daughter, and shared her hobbies of fishing, needlework, playing cards, and bingo. She will be missed beyond words.
Surviving are one son and daughter-in-law; Bill and Helen Meyers, of Wellesley Island, NY; two daughters and sons-in-law; Mary and Peter Calogero, of Sherrill, and Marge and Rich Snell, of Camden; two brothers and sister-in-laws; Tom and Charlotte Kowalski, of Charlotte, NC, Frank and Colleen Kowalski, of Camden, and one brother, Donald Kowalski, of Camden; nine grandchildren; Adam Meyers, Sarah Meyers, Katie Meyers Kaufman, Rachel Calogero, Mary Kay Calogero, Stephen Snell, Jennifer Snell Tryon, Michael Snell, and Richard Snell; thirteen great-grandchildren; Eva and Mia Farone, Madalyn, Ryan, John, and Lauren Kaufman, Vincenzo and Gabriel Stranges, Alexis Davis, Kaitlyn and Allison Snell, Colin Snell, Anthony Snell; and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brother, Edward Kowalski.
The family is especially grateful and offer their heartfelt thanks to Father Mathis and Theresa Cootu for the love and care they provided to Agnes.
