Our beloved mother and grandmother, Kay Meyer, peacefully passed from this life, at the age of ninety-six, on Sunday, March 7, 2021, in St. George, Utah.

Kay was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on December 1, 1924, to Amanda Isabel Eisenlohr Urbanke and Francis Anthony Urbanke. She married her eternal companion, Henry Fredrick William Meyer, Jr., on November 29, 1947, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They were later sealed in the Mesa Arizona Temple on October 31, 1953. Kay and Hank served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Dubbo, Australia.

Our mother and grandmother was an amazing woman. She was loving yet firm. She was always striving to be the woman that Heavenly Father wanted her to be. She was a great friend to many and was the one who would be there for you when you felt the rest of the world had forgotten you. She had a quick wit and excellent sense of humor. She was also one mean Uno and Risk player. Kay is dearly missed but we rejoice to know that she has been reunited with loved ones whom she has been missing for years.

Kay is survived by her children: Michael J. Meyer (Jeri), Dinel L. Minson (Robin), Timothy K. Meyer, and Paul H. Meyer (Laurie). She is also survived by twenty-two grandchildren, forty-nine great-grandchildren and eight great-great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, her daughters, Christine S. Meyer, Amanda K. Wilson and Elizabeth I. Rodeback, her grandson, Chase Wilson, and great-granddaughter, Adalyn Meyer.

A graveside service will be held for family at the Provo City Cemetery on Friday, March 19, 2021, at 12:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, it is requested that a donation be made to the Missionary Fund of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Much gratitude to the staff at Spring Gardens for their love and care of Kay. It is very appreciated.

We had just been newly called to serve in the Spring Gardens Branch when the Covid restrictions but us at bay. We talked with Kay in person on one occasion and got a feel for the incredible person she was. We were so looking forward to many more visits and church interaction. Our sincere sympathy to her family and loved ones.

Grandma Meyer was one of a kind and a gem! Our family shares so many fond memories, the good and sad. She always had such a beautiful smile and very piercing eyes if you did something you shouldn't have! All throughout her life, the one thing that she always made sure of is that she told you she loved you.

As a young girl, I loved grandma's perfume bottle collection and was always so surprised that she didn't have pierced ears. She was always dressed so nice for any occasion and loved her family so, so much. Getting a picture in the mail or a phone call is what warmed her heart. Getting a visit in person was like winning the lottery!

I will miss our phone calls Grandma and catching up about your daily activities and how I probably harassed you more than I should have about living until 100. You and I both were surprised that every once and a while, Turner Classis Movies had a new movie on that you hadn't seen before. It was the small things that we laughed about.

Knowing that you are reunited with our passed loved ones brings me so much comfort and I now have an amazing guardian angel. We all love you so much and are so happy that you have finally been able to move on. XOXO

I married Michael James Meyer over fourteen years ago! After losing my mother! Kay Meyer, became my other Mom! She was a great blessing to me! We were so close the last 14 and half years. I'm grateful for her example and all she taught me. I'm blessed to have had her in my life and having her so close to me! She radiated with love to all who came into her life! She is at peace and happy now, out of pain and with her loved ones. But she leaves empty place in our hearts. We will miss her every day until we meet with her again!

Love, Gene

    I took Grandma to see Mama Mia at Tuachan second row. We had many of the workers who happily assisted Grandma safely down the stairs and into her seat. Afterwards, we got a ride in the golf cart. This was such a fun time!
