Myers Celebrate 55 Years
Wesley “Bud” and Dorothy “Dot” Myers of Moundsville are celebrating their 55th wedding anniversary today.
The couple met in Los Angeles, California on Jan. 1, 1964, when Bud met Dot at a diner and swept her off her feet.
Five months later on her birthday June 2, 1964, they were married.
Bud worked for General Dynamics Astronautics in San Diego but missed the hills of West Virginia and moved his family back to the area to open Myers Quaker State Gas station in McMechen. Bud left the service station business after 12 plus years to own and operate B & B Excavating which he did until retirement. Dot loved to cook and still does. She opened The Crystal Hall by Dot’s Catering in Moundsville, which she owned and operated for more than 15 years. Dot also worked for Marshall County Schools as a bus driver and cook for over 30 years.
After retirement Dot got bored and opened a restaurant Nana’s Pizza & Pies in Moundsville with Bud’s love and support. At age 76, she is turning the business over to her granddaughter Elizabeth, but will continue to make the homemade pies and ice cream.
The couple are blessed with two children. The children and their spouses include Lorin and Marina, Naomi and Allen; four grandchildren and their spouses: Megan and Robert, Elizabeth, Matthew and Catrina, and Melissa) and two great-grandchildren, Adeline and AnnaLynn).
