Obituary of Carol Ann Meyer
Carol Ann Meyer
(May 19, 1942 - October 6, 2023)
After a courageous battle, God called our beautiful Carol home on Friday October 6, 2023 at the age of 81.
Carol was born in Galahad to Lawrence and Thelma Strauss. In 1958 she met the love of her life, Melvin. They were married on July 13, 1963 at St. Martin’s Catholic Church in Heisler. After the birth of their first child in 1965, Carol decided to leave her teaching career and focus on raising a family and farming. Two more children followed in 1969 and 1971. They farmed in the Heisler area for 40 years and retired to Camrose in 2005.
Through the years Carol was very involved within the church and community. She enjoyed helping others, driving combine, camping, fishing, gardening, baking, crafts and spending time with family and friends.
Carol will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 60 years Melvin; three children Darren (Rhonda), Dawn (Brent) and Carmen (Randy); and sister Janet (Dennis). Also left to cherish her memory are her grandchildren Megan, Justin, Robyn, Sydney and Avery; and great-grandchildren Lawson, Hanlen and Atley.
Carol was predeceased by her parents Lawrence and Thelma Strauss; and daughter-in-law Monica Meyer.
