She was born July 15, 1913, in Zwickau, Germany, to Georg and Margarete (Bernstein) Schilling.
On Dec. 9, 1939, she married Siegfried Meyer in Zwickau, Germany. He died Jan. 13, 1994.

Our memories will keep Mom in our hearts for being a good mother, hard worker, excellent cook and housekeeper and for being very independent.
She fell in love with a stray cat that showed up at her door. She named him Sigi, Dad’s nickname, the love of her life.
Mom has reached the “Finish Line”, may she rest in peace.
