Ann Marie Meyer, age 89 of Wausau, left her earthly home peacefully, on Monday, June 22, 2020 at her home.
She was born in Wausau on July 24, 1930, the youngest of 15 children born to the late Paul and Pearl (Schulta) Richey. On July 16, 1949, she married Edward P. Meyer in Wausau. He preceded her in death on March 6, 1972.
Ann Marie worked various jobs during her life, including Press Operator for Wausau Laundry for over 20 years, and cleaning for the ENT and Eye Clinic in Wausau, from which she retired. She enjoyed visiting with her many grandchildren. Her face lit up a room when she saw her great-grandchildren.
Ann Marie loved to bake. Brownies, chocolate crinkles, and fudge were among her specialties. She was a generous soul, cooking for others and inviting folks over for holidays. She was generous with her time and resources whenever her family needed anything. She reveled in her sisters and loved to laugh with them.
She enjoyed gardening, puzzles, playing cards, polka and country music, and picking wild blackberries (the kind that left scratches all over her legs).
Survivors include her children, Geraldine Graebel; Vanessa, Katherine, and Robert, Debbie Robertson (Frank); Edward Meyer III, Cindy Noack (Merlin); Tom Kurth, Jr. Sherrie Cox (Rod); Brennan, Lee (Sheila) and Elise and Kira. She was preceded in death by her son, Bill Meyer. Ann Marie delighted in her 13 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great-granddaughter.
A Special “Thank you” to her caregivers at Mountain Terrace Assisted Living and to Bernie at Aspirus Palliative Care for checking in and taking such good care of her.
In addition to her parents, husband, and son, she was preceded in death by all of her siblings: Regina Weiloch, Frank Richey, Severina Nezda, Paul Richey, Walter Richey, Sister Anne Richey, Johanna Sauer, Leo Richey, Frances Lohnsdorf, Louise Pilch, Raymond Richey, Irene Novitzke, Aggie Van Ness, and Marion Kazmierczk.
