Alma C. Obermeyer, age 94 of Batesville, died Monday, January 7, 2018, at Margaret Mary Health.
Born March 2, 1924, in Ripley County, Indiana, she is the daughter of Catherine (nee Bruns) and Edward Prickel. She married Joseph Obermeyer and he preceded her in death October 19, 2002.
Alma was a homemaker and a member of Holy Family Church in Oldenburg.
A devout person, her faith and her family were most important to Alma. She enjoyed providing for her family and being an excellent cook, she loved cooking for them. Her roast beef was absolutely delicious and although she shared the recipe with others, they feel she left out an ingredient or two because theirs just doesn't taste quite as good.
She was also a good baker with the irony being she herself was not a big dessert eater.
At 94, Alma remained active, driving and exercising right up to her death, which was good because, according to her family, she loved to go shopping. She also put out a garden yearly, canning and freezing the excess.
Alma always wore a smile and her family described her as a grand lady who was emotionally and physically strong.
She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law Mel and Deb Obermeyer of Batesville; grandsons Dr. Doug (Sarah) Obermeyer and Nick (Tara) Obermeyer, all of Batesville; stepgrandsons John (Holly) Williams of Villa Hills, Kentucky, Jason Williams of Finley, Ohio, Jared (Natalie) Williams of Loveland, Ohio; five great-grandchildren and four stepgreat-grandchildren.
In addition to her husband and parents, she is also preceded in death by brothers Alanus "Doc" and Albert Prickel.

Funeral services followed at 11:30 a.m. at the Sisters of St. Francis Chapel due to renovations being done at Holy Family Church. Burial was in the church cemetery.
