Vail Daily obituary: Tiffany Robinson Myers, 1970-2016
She is now a warrior angel. After fighting a courageous battle with cancer, Tiffany Robinson Myers, 45, of Gypsum, died peacefully in her home, surrounded by loved ones on Saturday. The community lost a compassionate, contributing member who gave tirelessly to many.
Tiffany was born on Dec. 31, 1970, to Paul and Marje Robinson in Silverton, Idaho. As a young girl, Tiffany excelled in many things. She was an excellent student, enjoyed a varsity cheerleader and was active in Rainbow, where she held the office of chaplain.
Around 20 years ago, Tiffany met the love of her life, Jeff Myers, at her family’s restaurant in Kellogg, Idaho. The couple fell in love and moved to Gypsum, where Jeff grew up. Tiffany, a loyal, sharp, technology-savvy, witty, beautiful blonde, became an irreplaceable asset in the administration offices at Eagle County Schools, where she remained employed until the time of her death.
Tiffany and Jeff married on June 14, 1997, and had two amazing sons, Jesse James, 16, and Kellen Paul, 13. Tiffany was an incredible mother, wife, sister, daughter, aunt and friend. Tiffany always had her family and friends at the center of her life, especially her sons and all of their activities. She was an energetic spark plug who donated countless hours to Eagle and Gypsum-area schools and other nonprofits. She was always optimistic and her smile lit up the entire room.
Tiffany constantly lifted up everyone around her. Her determination in all areas of her life was contagious. She made all who surrounded her into better people, and she will be missed by so many. She was a force to be reckoned with, and those around her constantly sought out her knowledge and skills in various areas of expertise. She was tenacious in her zest for life. She was always deeply grateful and appreciative of the people and opportunities in her life. Tiffany’s humor and strength was inspiring to everyone who knew her. Her warmth and approachability was embraced by everyone who met her.
