In a Facebook posting, Myers’ husband, actor Rob McLean, wrote: “It breaks my heart to inform you that Erin passed away today [Saturday] at 5:02 p.m. She was a fighter and a warrior til the end, but when it came the end was calm, and peaceful, and she was surrounded by people who loved and cherished her. There were at least six people’s hands on her when she released her last breath. I am so relieved that her suffering is over, and am outraged that she was taken so soon.”Also on Facebook, actor Greg Hardian wrote: “I will remember the lady with the serene face that always had a hint of mischief dancing around the eyes. The dryly funny, super-talented, hyper-intelligent, yet low-key and down-to-earth person with whom I shared beers and shows and stories and laughs. She really was an extraordinary person, and she found the perfect match in another extraordinary person, Rob McLean. They had what everyone else is looking for.”“There have been birthdays, weddings, theater, canoes, other adventures, and many, many years,” said actress Mechelle Moe, who worked with Myers. “Most of all, there has been lots of love amongst many pals. What I want to say, in a not so polite manner, is that this is all so unfair. But we all know that already.”Myers is survived by her husband; her father, Skip; two younger siblings, Matt and Amanda, and her stepmother, Rita. Funeral services are pending. A memorial is being planned.
