ORA MAY MEYER “Daughter of the King”
Nov. 18, 1928 – March 28, 2023
Ora Mae Meyer was born in Stickney, South Dakota in November 1928. She moved to Oregon during the Great Depression at the age of seven. She met her husband, Joseph, while he was on leave from the service. They were married in 1949 and settled in Cave Junction in 1954 where Joseph practiced dentistry and where she lived for 65 years and raised six children.
Ora Mae was raised in a religious environment but gave her life to Jesus Christ in the early ‘70s. In 1976 her family was involved in a fatal car crash that took the lives of her two youngest children. She immediately forgave the two intoxicated young men who caused the accident.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Dr. Joseph Meyer and three children, Susan Fozzard, Ronald and Raymond Meyer. She is survived by three children, Dr. Robert Meyer, Cynthia Nobile and Richard Meyer, ten grandchildren, fifteen great grandchildren and a younger sister, Darlene Meininger.
Ora Mae was involved in her church and community where she had many friends. She enjoyed reading the Bible and Bible Studies. She also enjoyed playing Bridge, card and board games. She was wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother moving to Melody Assisted Living in 2019 in order to be nearer to many of her family. She always had a positive outlook on life and had a beautiful smile that was contagious as she was so encouraging to others. She was very kindhearted and generous, supporting many Christian endeavors and ministries.
She was very eager to join her husband and three younger children in heaven. Her love for Jesus was a shining light to all. We will miss Ora Mae but she hopes to see you all in our great reunion in heaven.
The Joy of the Lord was her strength. Nehemiah 8:10.
Jesus said, “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.” John 11:25
I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.
Timothy 4:7
A celebration of life will be held July 8, 1 p.m. at Bridgeview Community Church.
