Patsy Meyer was born Feb. 6, 1930, in Lebanon, Ore., the daughter of Harry J. and Mabel M. (Miller) Lutz.
She grew up in Lebanon, Ore., and later lived in Afghanistan for two years with her children and former husband due to his job with the University of Wyoming. The family moved to Fremont County in 1960.
Throughout her life, she traveled to many places to visit family, including Greece, Italy, India, Australia and Papau New Guinea.
She was a member of the Lutheran church and was an active member of the CowBelles.
Her family said she was a mom, an auntie, sister and friend to many people. She grew up on a farm with animals, which ignited a great collection of anything dealing with pigs. She also learned to love gardening and canning while living on the farm. Above all, her family said she was a homemaker, and she enjoyed being with her children and grandchildren and was a unique grandma. They said she enjoyed playing pinochle and bridge with friends and family, and she loved her schnauzer, Misty.
She is survived by her children, Brad (Evette) Meyer of Kinnear and Michael Meyer and his good friend Sam Ecker of Ashland, Ore., Linda Valenti of Laramie and Cindy (Bruce) Belt of Tyler, Texas; brothers Larry Lutz of Junction City, Ore., and Donald Lutz of McMinnville, Ore.; sister Betty Glasscock of Toledo, Ore.; eight grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
