Patricia H. "Granny" Meyers

December 26, 1934 ~ July 19, 2018 (age 83)

On July 19th 2018, Patricia H. “Granny” Meyers, our Mom, Granny and Gigi, went to join her Lord and Savior. Mom was born on December 26, 1934 in Lewisport to the late William Holmes and Alice Holland Hawley. After graduating from Lewisport High School, Mom went to work at General Electric in Tell City. In 1955, Mom married the love of her life, the late Fred Allen Meyers, and together they raised two loving daughters. In 1970, Mom began working for the United States Postal Service from which she retired in 1997. After the passing of her husband Fred Allen in 1988, Mom was appointed to finish her husband’s term on the Lewisport City Council, where she remained a council member until November of 2017. Mom was a people person and some of her greatest joys came from talking to people on her mail route, working on the Heritage Festival Committee and helping in the Lewisport Baptist Church. Mom was loved by many and known by everyone as Granny Meyers. Mom remembered everyone’s birthdays and anniversaries and many people were on the receiving end of her cards and notes of encouragement.
