Billie Galloway Myers, 47, died at home Nov. 16, 2022, surrounded by her family and friends.

She was born on Oct. 6, 1975. In 2002 she married James Myers and they soon had a beautiful family with Luke (19), Brady (17) and Journey (11). She did everything in full measure and was a dedicated, loving, hard-working wife and mother. She said, “I never really ever wanted to be married or have kids but once I met James I couldn’t see my life any other way…I 100 percent know that loving and caring for James and the kids is my purpose.”

She spent countless hours supporting her husband with his business and their farm, homeschooling the kids and endlessly considering the best way to educate them, taking them on field trips or hikes, attending football games and horse-riding lessons. She sincerely loved spending time with her family.

Even while battling cancer for five years, she always kept her eyes on God and encouraged others through her faithful witness that, “The thing that God brings me back to a million times a day in a million little ways is, tell them how good I am. I just keep coming back to this place of just being overwhelmed with God’s goodness to me. I know people would look at my situation and think God’s goodness isn’t the first thing that would come to mind, but this past year He has been so real to me and such a sweet and faithful companion. Our circumstances can never overshadow His goodness.”

As a friend recently said, Billie Myers was “our encourager.” She was always thinking of others first, encouraging them and supporting them through whatever difficulty they were going through, convincing them that they had the strength and God’s help. Our hearts are aching without her, but we rejoice in the promise of seeing her again.

She is survived by her beloved husband, James and three children, Luke, Brady, and Journey; her parents, Bill and Helen Galloway; and her brother, Jason and his wife, Trish, of Georgia.

A funeral service will be held at 1 p.m. Friday, Nov. 25, 2022, at Moody-Connolly Funeral Home. The family will receive friends starting at 11 a.m.
