Alice Pauline Myers Will, 85, of Berryville, passed away in her home on Wednesday, May 26, 2021. She entered into the kingdom of God with confidence and acceptance; knowing that her days ahead would be filled with peace and love.
Pauline is survived by her three children, Roger A. Will and his wife Carol of Burlington, Kan., Thomas R. Will and his wife Shari of Berryville and Elaine G. Burrows and her husband Tom of Culpeper; her granddaughters, Amber Toms and Emily Toms, along with their father, Craig Toms, of Aldie. She is also survived by her brother, Lawrence and sister-in-law Janice Myers; her sister, June Grimes; her sister-in-law, Irene Myers, and her brother-in-law, George Sheppard.
Her husband of 59 years, Donald Gene Will preceded her in death, having passed in 2015. Her parents, Lewis and Grace Myers; her brothers, William Myers and Leroy Myers, and her sisters, Gloria Sheppard and Peggy Lee, also preceded her in death.
Following their union in June 1956, Pauline and Donald began their life together in Bealeton, with long-term residences in Hamilton, Orange and Berryville. During her life she raised three children and worked for the telephone company and Loudoun Hospital.
Her life was filled with memories of Sunday family dinners, weekends at “the Cottage” in Fleeton Beach, Va., and trips across the country. Pauline will be remembered as a true Southern lady who lived with grace and style at all times. She would say that her greatest achievement was her children, and her most prideful accomplishment was contributing to the success of Roger, Tom and Elaine.
The family will receive friends from 10 to 11 a.m. Friday, June 11, at Moser Funeral Home in Warrenton, with the service to follow. Internment will take place at the Midland Church of the Brethren Cemetery, with all friends welcome to attend.
Pallbearers will be Roger Will, Tom Will, David Myers, Craig Toms, and Tom Burrows. Pauline’s brother, Lawrence Myers will also escort the coffin.
Pastor Douglas Wright and Pastor Hunter See of the Keystone Baptist Church will be officiating the service.
Memorial contributions may be made to the Perpetual Care Fund of the Midland Church of the Brethren Cemetery, 10434 Old Carolina Road, Midland, Va. 22728.
