Margaret ‘Peggy’

    Margaret "Peggy" Ann Meyer was born on Feb. 3, 1933, to James A. and Luella A. Dennis Evertz at Mandan, No. Dakota.  At a young age she moved with her family to Idaho where she was reared and educated, graduating from Nampa Senior High School in 1952.  After graduation she married and later divorced.  From that union she had 4 children, Clark, Polly, Judy and Cathy.  "Peggy" worked at Pollard's restaurant in Caldwell for many years until her health forced her to retire.
    On March 3, 1963, in Winnemucca, NV, she entered into matrimony with her long-time friend, Marion L. Meyer and inherited 5 more children, Edna, Lucille, Evelyn, Joyce and Judy.  "Peggy" and Marion had two children of their own, Carol and Leonard.  She loved to sew, crochet, work with hobby crafts and plastic canvas.  Her children and grandchildren now enjoy these hobbies.  Her passion was camping and fishing.
    Her biggest joy in life was to go to her lake property in Donnelly for the summer which her grandchildren called, "grandma's mountain."  She often sat around the campfire roasting hot dogs and marshmallows with her family.  Peggy and her aunt would take their fishing poles, bait and lanterns to the lake on cool summer nights to catch fish.  Peggy was a beautiful loving soul with a huge heart.  Everyone knew her as grandma.
    Peggy is survived by her loving husband of 32 years, Marion Meyer, Nampa; 11 children and their spouses, Edna and Matt Blaylock, Evelyn Fuller, Judy Houseman, Cathy Wilson and Carol Meyer, all of Nampa, Lucille and Stan Moore and Joyce and Don Taylor, all of Caldwell, Clark Wilson, MO, Polly Wilson, TX, Judy and Charles Franklin, formerly of Middleton, and Leonard and Stacey Meyer, Middleton; her aunt, Bea Goodson, Nampa; 27 grandchildren; 27 great-grandchildren; several nieces, nephews and cousins.
    She was preceded in death by her parents; a sister, Marian Calhoon; a brother, Mike Miller; and 6 grandchildren.  Friends may call at the Alsip Funeral Chapel today until 9 p.m., on Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on Thursday from 9 to 11 a.m.
    The family suggests memorials to the Mercy Medical Center Hospice, 1512 12th Ave. Road, Nampa, ID 83686, or flowers may be sent.
