In 1936, John Myers, Jr. established Myers Funeral Home in one of the most beautiful sections of Westminster across from what is now known as Emerald Hill (City Hall). For over 40 years he built a reputation by striving to become one of the most caring professionals in the field of funeral service. He constructed a facility that reflected his personality and philosophy by creating a warm, homelike atmosphere where the grieving process could begin.
In 1984, John's nephew, Robert Myers, was called to continue providing funeral service under the Myers name. Robert answered that call with the intention of providing caring, quality service at an affordable price. In 1986 Robert's wife, Sueann, joined the firm, and the Myers tradition continued.
Then, in June, 2002, a new family was invited to become associated with Myers Funeral Home. Justin Durboraw came on board, and on May 1, 2003 Myers-Durboraw Funeral Home, P.A. was formed.
An expansion and renovation of the facilities took place during the spring of 2003. In early 2006, additional renovations of the outside facade, foyer, steps, porch, patio area and landscaping were completed.
In April, 2021, a new family became associated with Myers-Durboraw Funeral Home, P.A., when James Schwartz purchased the funeral homes.
