image001 - CopyMarie C. Meyer, age 88 of St. Mary’s, died Friday, May 2, 2014, at St. Andrew’s Health Campus in Batesville.  Born March 8, 1926 in Oldenburg, Indiana, she is the daughter of Mary (Nee:  Werner) and Frank Hartman.  She married Victor J. Meyer November 12, 1947 at Holy Family Church in Oldenburg and he preceded her in death April 14, 2013.  She was a member of St. Mary’s of the Rock Church and its Ladies Society and for many years was the caretaker of the Grotto there, along with her husband Vic.

Marie loved to cook and bake for her family of 13 children. Her family enjoyed her  homemade bread on a daily basis.  She took great delight in serving some family favorites: her apple dumplings with her special sauce added on top; also “Beefy Bunwiches” which would often be made for their birthdays upon request.  Marie’s true passion was tending to her garden and flowers.  She grew over 15 varieties of roses and put out a large garden that helped feed her entire family.  She would can, freeze and make preserves from the fruits and vegetables, for her family to enjoy all year long.  Marie loved to bake & serve a variety of desserts, especially all types of pies.  Some of her other hobbies were crocheting, playing Scrabble and Solo, working crossword puzzles and watching song birds, which she could identify by the sounds that they made.  She and Vic loved to travel and would often attend the area church picnics.  Her family was the most important thing in the world to her, especially her children and grandchildren.  Marie’s family described her as  a caring mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother and as being the “Perfect Homemaker” where everyone felt at home and loved in her presence.

She is survived by her daughters and son-in-laws Grace and Arthur Schneider of Batesville, Yvonne and Ronald Schneider of Sunman, Mary Louise Meyer and Richard Cartwright of Oldenburg, Eileen and Tim Duff of Hamilton, Ohio, Carolyn and Dale Sorber of Rushville, Indiana, Susan and Brad Everage of Simpsonville, Kentucky; sons and daughter-in-laws Eugene and Karen Meyer of Brookville, Dennis and Marlene Meyer of Greensburg, Gary and Sue Meyer, Roy and Berna Meyer, Joe and April Meyer, John and Linda Meyer and Jerome and Nancy Meyer, all of Batesville; sisters Antoinette Hartman of Rushville, Geraldine Nobbe of Brookville, Edith Eickhorst of Kansas City, Missouri; brother Irvin Hartman of Lawrenceburg; 28 grandchildren, 2 step-grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.  In addition to her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by sister Agnes Blankman; brother Jerome Hartman and three grandchildren.

Visitation is Tuesday, May 6th, from 4 – 8 p.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home in Batesville.  Funeral services are 10 a.m., Wednesday, May 7th, at St. Mary’s of the Rock Church, with Rev. Humbert Moster O.F.M. officiating.  Burial will follow in the church cemetery.  Memorials may be made to the Sisters of St. Francis of Oldenburg or St. Mary’s of the Rock Preservation Society.
