Rebecca "Dollie'' Adair Meyers, 68, died on Wednesday, June 13, 2007, at St. Luke's Regional Medical Center in Boise, Idaho, of cancer.
She was born May 2, 1939, in Clinton, S.C., the child of Marvin and Louise Spurgeon Adair. Rebecca grew up in Joanna, S.C. She married David R. Meyers on Dec. 23, 1960 in Stateburg, S.C. In 1970, they moved to Hinsdale, Ill., where they lived for 25 years and where she gave birth to her daughters. They moved to Sun Valley in 1995 at the time of her husband's retirement.
''Dollie'' was a housewife for 46 years and loved it. She loved her home, her flowers, her two dogs, cooking, cruises and travel.
She fought an epic battle against the ravages of cancer for 16 years, never complaining and always hoping for the best. She loved her 12 years in Sun Valley with its small-town atmosphere and personal relationships. Dollie was dearly loved by all for her infectious laugh and positive attitude. She will be sorely missed by her family and friends.
