Marie A. Meyer, 96, passed away on March 11, 2013, at Fleur Heights Care Center. Funeral services will be held at St. John's Basilica on Thursday, March 14, at 10 a.m., preceded by visitation at 9 a.m. Burial will follow at Glendale Cemetery.

Marie was born in Portsmouth, Iowa, on Feb. 5, 1917, the third oldest of ten children born to Joseph and Susie Neubauer. In 1937 the family moved to Norwalk, Iowa, where Marie met her husband, Myron Meyer, to whom she was married for 44 years. They made their home and raised their children in Des Moines. For 20 years Marie worked for the Des Moines Public Schools in food service at North and Tech High Schools.
A loving wife, mother, and grandmother, Marie always put her family first. She was a devoted member of St. John's Basilica and a passionate Iowa Hawkeye fan. Known as a superb cook and a wonderful baker, she enjoyed canning and collecting cookbooks.

Marie is survived by her daughters, Mary L. Meyer of Des Moines, Helen (Richard ) Mooney of Urbandale, son, Joseph Meyer of Des Moines, grandson Christopher Mooney of West Des Moines, brother, Max Neubauer of Des Moines, and sister, Sr. Modesta Neubauer of Johnston, Iowa. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Myron Meyer, her brothers, Mike Neubauer, Nick Neubauer, Harold Neubauer, John Neubauer, and Albert Neubauer, and her sisters, Eleanor Ash and Frances Radke.
