Lelah Maxine Meyer, 94, stepped from this world into the next just in time for choir practice with God’s heavenly host, on Sunday morning, April 24, 2022 at 7:25 AM.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Walter and Grace Gore, three brothers, Walter Leroy, Warren, and Paul, two sisters, Evelyn and Leota, her husband Vernon Meyer, one son, Gary Don, one daughter, Verna Jean, and one great-granddaughter, Soleil. Left behind were three brothers, Walter, Raymond and wife Charlotte, and Earl and his wife Rita, four children, Linda Morgan and husband Loyd, Judi Meyer-Glimp and husband Rick, David Meyer and wife Twila, and Darla Durham, one son-inlaw, Rickey Martin, eleven grandchildren, twenty-five great-grandchildren, and sixteen great-great-grandchildren. Lelah was born in Oklahoma in 1927 but spent most of her life in southern New Mexico; the last 57 years were spent in Las Cruces. She was a wife for 55 years, mother to six children, homemaker for us all, office administrator at ESCI for 27 years, teacher at home and church all of her married life, sister to many who crossed her path, prayer warrior for her family and church family, and faithful follower of her Lord and Savior. Mother worked side-by-side with Daddy whether it was in the restaurant/garage business or at the second-hand store. She then worked for Loyd in his air-conditioning/heating company. She retired from working at ESCI at the age of 80 and was immediately offered a job with a similar business. She declined, however, and began her retirement. She was never idle, taking care of those in need, taking some to grocery shop, offering a ride when anyone needed one, was willing to spend endless periods of time listening to those who needed someone to talk to, leaving her chores until late at night in order to help someone else get something they needed done. Mother demonstrated Love one another and your neighbor as yourself. Graveside services were held Tuesday May 3, 2022 at 4:00 pm at the Red Star Cemetery, Leedey, OK.
