Wilma Elvera Meyer, 85, Batesville, passed away Saturday, Oct. 15, 2016, at Manderly Health Care Center, Osgood.
The daughter of August and Arietta (Kramer) Ahrens was born April 28, 1931, in Batesville.
Wilma graduated from Batesville High School in 1949. She married Robert Meyer April 29, 1950, at the Adams Lutheran Church, Batesville.
The Adams Lutheran Church member was a former Sunday School teacher and sang in her church choir. Wilma was the first woman on church council, a member of the Ladies Aid, Lutheran Church Women and the Happy Hearts Home Ec Club.
As a homemaker she always had certain days for everything, like Mondays for washing, Tuesdays for ironing, Fridays for grocery shopping. Her house was always neat, tidy and clean. Her kids remember Mom always sending them outside to play. She will also be remembered for her great cooking, especially her fried chicken and meatloaf. She loved spending time with her family. Her favorite pastimes were playing cards and working crossword puzzles. She had a deep love for her church and loved music, playing the piano at home often. She also loved attending the sporting events of her grandchildren and was an avid Bengals fan, attending many games. She also liked traveling with her husband, which included all 50 states and even to Europe and Canada.
She will be dearly missed by her husband, Bob; three daughters: Karen Weisenbach (Mike), Kathy Wagner (Roger) and Connie Coyle (Larry); and son: Roger Meyer (Bonnie); along with eight grandchildren: Matt and Mark Weisenbach, Justin and Joshua Wagner, Kari Rauch, Abby Hackman and Ryan and Ethan Meyer; 15 great-grandchildren; plus her sister, Gert Linville, and brother, Mervin Ahrens.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Betty Siebert, and brother, Ervin Ahrens.
