We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Woodbury
Mindy came into this world in Waterbury, Connecticut on October 30th, 1973 to her Father, Larry Densmore and Mother, Maureen Densmore (Montgomery). Mindy spent her last evening doing what she loved most, celebrating with family over a home cooked meal at her home in Middlebury, CT on December 24th, 2021.
After a short stay in South Britain, Connecticut, Mindy and her family lived in Morris, Connecticut through high school after which she went on to undergraduate studies at Bradford College in Haverhill, MA. Mindy met Jeff Myer in 1994 through mutual friends and they married in September of 2000 after a brief courtship. In the Spring of 1995, Mindy and Jeff traveled the country in a VW bus that Mindy affectionately named “Greta”. Greta has been with the family ever since.
They fell in love with the Pacific Northwest and lived in Olympia, Washington for several years where Mindy enjoyed foraging for wild mushrooms and catching crabs in the Puget Sound. Several years after returning to the East Coast, Mindy gave birth to her son Jonah Frederick-Wolf Myer on March 6th, 2006 in Brattleboro, VT. In 2009 Mindy, Jeff and Jonah returned to CT to be closer to family and resided in Middlebury since.
In addition to being a full time Mother to Jonah over the years, Mindy also worked for several years in customer service at New Morning in Woodbury CT. She was passionate about organic foods and enjoyed interacting with many of her regular customers over the years.
Mindy enjoyed music very much. She was an avid concert goer and had a beautiful singing voice that she shared through performing with many choirs over the years. She was also known to sing for fun, around the house, often busting out commercial jingles from the 70’s & 80’s. Mindy was very interested in glass both as a collector of uranium glass objects as well as a glass artists creating fused glass pieces and lamp-work beads.
Cooking, especially in the context of entertaining was close to Mindy’s heart. She had many specialties that she was very proud of not the least of which was her rugelach cookies that she would prepare only during the Christmas season. Her love of cheese was unsurpassed and she was even known to dabble in cheesemaking.
Family was very important to Mindy and she always was thankful for having her family and extended family close by. She also had so many friends that she considered family both near and far. Mindy was an animal lover and considered Tony (Dog), Salty and Tilly (Cats) her pets, part of the family.
Services will be held Saturday, January 8th 2:00-4:00pm at Munson Lovetere Funeral Home, 2 School St Woodbury, CT.
Mindy will be greatly missed by her loving husband Jeff Myer, son Jonah Myer, father Larry Densmore, mother Maureen Densmore (Montgomery) and several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews that she adored.
On her most recent birthday, Mindy had set up a birthday fundraiser on Facebook for Farm Sanctuary (www.farmsanctuary.org). Mindy would be proud to have donations continue to be made to this charity whose mission was close to her heart.
