Mrs. Meyer was born December 15, 1932 in rural Colfax to Charles and Sena Hadaway Brandt. She married Albert (Abe) Meyer on May 17, 1953 in rural Colfax. He passed away November 18, 2006.
Mrs. Meyer lived her early adult life on a farm in rural Chenoa farming with her husband until retiring in Fairbury. They enjoyed many winters together as snowbirds in Florida.
She is survived by her children, Vera (John) Wahls, Pontiac; Mary Lou Culkin, Fairbury; and Roger (Julie) Meyer, Bloomington; and grandchildren Justin (Anna Lee) Wahls, Aaron (Kristin) Wahls, Jill (Tom) Jenks, Joni (Dayton) Kilgus, Amber (Will) Barsema, Shelly (Matt) Freemole, Luke Meyer and Carly Meyer; her 21 great-grandchildren, Ellen and John Wahls, Noah, Theo and Levi Wahls, A.J., Nolan and Mason Jenks, Adeline, Lydia and Eli Kilgus, Brooks and C.J.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Abe; her children, Ruth Ann and Keith Allen Meyer; her son-in-law, Tom Culkin; and her sister, Myla Harris.
Marge had a great love for all her family; always ready to hold a little one! In addition, she enjoyed life on the farm along with balllroom and square dancing. She was a member of St. Paul Lutheran Church, Forrest.
The family would like to extend a heart-felt thank you to the staff at Fairview Haven for their tremendous care of Marge and also to Pennie Hunter, for her sweet visits. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be directed to Fairview Haven Retirement Community, 605 N Fourth St, Fairbury, IL 61739 or Lifesong for Orphans-Village of Hope, 202 N.

Patio Visits clarification
To all our Friends and Family -
We love to see you and look forward to your visits, especially during this time.
However, we are under strict restrictions!!!
We must follow all protocol in order for us to continue to have patio visits.
1. Residents must wear mask, and stay behind the designated line - no physical contact at all.
2. Family must stay behind the south side of the fence at all times, and only the people who live in your household may be in this area. So if you're not all sleeping under the same roof at night time, then you may not visit at the same time.
3. You may not pass anything to residents ...all items have to pass through the 48 hours waiting procedure.
4. All visits must be supervised by staff member; this is mandatory.
You must schedule your visit with Dixie Steidinger or the Life Enrichment team before the visit.
We will make every attempt to schedule the visit.
Care of the residents is priority #1 - so we might not be available to supervise at just anytime.
