Obituary for Faye Meyer

Faye Frances Meyer was born December 9, 1930 to Art and Nell (Raine) Salzman at Tyler, Minnesota. Faye grew up on the family farm in Diamond Lake Township, Minnesota – north of Lake Benton. She was baptized and confirmed at the United Methodist Church in Lake Benton. Faye graduated from Lake Benton High School in 1948. Following her education, she was united to E. Marvin Meyer on April 30, 1949. Their union was blessed with five children and 53 years marriage together. The couple lived in Sioux Falls, South Dakota for one year where Marvin worked for the Old Home Bakery and Faye worked at Northwestern Bell Telephone Company. In 1951, they moved to the family farm. Her primary job for many years was raising her five children, teaching them life skills to become independent with a strong work ethic. There were never idle hands. In 1979, they built a home on Highway 75 north of Lake Benton. Faye enjoyed working various jobs in the area. This included serving as a dietary cook at Divine Providence Hospital in Ivanhoe, volunteer driver for Lincoln County Transit, and Avon sales. In 2001, they moved into Lake Benton. Marvin passed away on June 5, 2002. Following a fractured hip from a recent fall, Faye entered the care of Avera Sunrise Manor Nursing Home in Tyler. She passed away there peacefully on Sunday, February 25, 2018 at the age of 87 years.

Faye was a member of Grace Lutheran Church in Lake Benton, Minnesota and had served in the GLCW and Diamond Lake Cemetery Board for many years. Faye enjoyed baking, gardening, maintaining a well-kept yard, and bird watching. She especially enjoyed time spent with her family.

Faye is lovingly remembered by her four children, Jill (and Paul) Borresen of Tyler, Minnesota, Connie (and Brent) Bressler of Lake Benton, Minnesota, Terry (and Anthony) Savas of El Dorado Hills, California, and Rick Meyer (and Deb Fredricks) of Ihlen, Minnesota; ten grandchildren, Chet Borresen, Troy (Brooke) Borresen, Chris (Cara) Bressler, Carrie (Ryan) Forster, Chad Tittle, Rachel Savas, Nikkos Savas, Jessica Meyer, Joshua Meyer, and Joanna (Matt) Hess; 18 great grandchildren; a brother, Gene (Lorraine) Salzman of Fairbanks, Alaska; nieces, nephews, family and friends. She was preceded in death by her husband, Marvin Meyer; a son, Douglas Meyer; sisters, Gladys Mann and Ione Anderson.

Blessed and eternal be her memory.
