Mrs. Jeri Myers

Mrs. Myers is a front office secretary at St. Vincent de Paul School.  She is the eighth of nine children who grew up in the former parish of St. Peter Church.  Due to St. Peter’s not having a school, she attended The Cathedral of St. Mary Grade School.  She then graduated from Woodruff High School and has completed a number of courses at Illinois Central College. 

Mrs. Myers started at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic School in 2014.

Her favorite book and one she always relies on is the Bible with Proverbs 3:5&6 being one of her favorite passages.  She also likes An Angel’s Story by Max Lucado.  In addition to the Bible, she enjoys listening to the late Fr. Benedict Groeschel and Mother Angelica.  She likes to read humorous mysteries with happy endings by Mary Marks and Debbie Macomber. 

Mrs. Myers relies on the saints for intercessory prayers and Mother Mary is her main source of intercession.  Another saint who has been special to her as well is St. Sharbel.  Although prayers are an important part of her daily life and she finds comfort in all of her Catholic prayers, one of her favorite prayers is the Act of Contrition.  She not only prays it daily for her own shortcomings but also offers it up for the souls in Purgatory at each Mass she attends and during her morning and evening prayers. 

She is married to her high school sweetheart Deacon Bob and they have been blessed with two sons and two granddaughters.  She enjoys animals and has two dogs that love to go for walks, two cats, and one parakeet that will say his name on rare occasions.  She feeds several squirrels that stop by each morning for peanuts.  In addition to reading, she likes art and spending time with family. 

Mrs. Myers feels blessed to serve the families at SVdP.  She has met many wonderful prayer warriors here at St. Vincent de Paul School.  She feels her faith is simple…she believes what she cannot see.  She loves to share with the students the Good News of Jesus Christ and to let them know they each have a guardian angel from God watching over them.  She shares with them something an elderly lady taught her years ago and something she still tells her family, “Be good and God will bless you.”
