Patricia Meyer

June 16, 1939 — March 11, 2022

Patricia Gail Meyer, lovingly known as Nana, was called to her heavenly home on Friday, March 11, 2022, with family by her side.  Pat was 82 years old.

Born June 16, 1939, in Rochester, NY to Marion and Francis Salomon, Pat was baptized and confirmed in her faith at Christ Lutheran Church.  At an early age Pat developed a love for music and the “lake”, spending time at their family cottage on Sodus Bay, Lake Ontario.

In the fall of 1957, Pat arrived in Minnesota at the campus of Bethany Lutheran College to pursue a teaching degree.  It was here that she met the love of her life, Marv.   Pat taught in a one room Christian school in Lime Creek, Iowa before Pat and Marv married in June of 1960.  They were blessed with two children.

Together Pat and Marv owned and operated a family resort in central Minnesota for 15 years.  Pat was also an integral part of the Bethany Lutheran College family; spearheading a campus beautification committee and welcoming guests and visitors into their home.

Pat retired to Gull Lake in Brainerd, Minnesota in 2002 where she enjoyed boating, watching the sunset, growing geraniums, and feeding the hummingbirds.  As the matriarch of the family, Pat found great happiness when surrounded by those she loved at the lake.  Pat loved to travel, visiting over 20 countries and many regions of the United States. She also loved a good hand of Bridge.

Pat was God’s perfectly chosen helpmate to her loving husband Marvin Meyer, whom she is survived by.  Pat is also survived by her children:  Joel Meyer (Jane) and Crista Krosch (Mark);  grandchildren:  Meredith Gunderson (Paul), Elise Ollrich (Nicklaus), Kjerstin Meyer (Riley), Nicholas Meyer (Noelle); 6 great grandchildren, many nieces and nephews.

Pat was preceded in death by her parents and four sisters.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to Bethany Lutheran College – Music Department.

Funeral Services will be held on Friday, March 18 at Christ Lutheran Church, Baxter and Saturday, March 19 at Bethany Lutheran College Chapel, Mankato.  Services will be at 11:00 a.m. with visitation at 10:00 a.m.  Interment to follow at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, Princeton.

Blessed be her memory.
