Elisabeth (Betty) Ann Meyer, 95

Elisabeth (Betty) Ann Meyer, beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and aunt,
passed away on March 11, 2023. She was born October 27, 1927, daughter of Ben J. and
Laura (Tebbe) Scheidler, and to stepmother Loretta (Moeller) Scheidler.
She was a lifelong resident of Greensburg, IN where she graduated from high school. She
was married June 5, 1948 to Hubert W. Meyer, moving from the city to begin her life as a
farm wife.
A bedrock of her life was her faith in God which sustained her throughout her life. She
was a 50-year member of Delta Theta Tau sorority, Greensburg Country Club, St. Mary’s
Catholic Church, and later in life along with her husband was active at the Knights of
Columbus. She touched many young lives as a 4-H adult Leader, teaching them the
importance of doing ones best no matter what the task.
All of these aspects of Betty’s life were important, but none matched the love of her
children-Diane, Steve, Ginny, and Rick. Betty enjoyed being present in their many
activities from girls dress reviews, to sporting events, to cattle shows, and music recitals.
Betty loved her grandchildren and had boundless pride in the successes, not to mention
the thrill of becoming a great grandmother of eleven adorable boys and girls.
One of Betty’s true passions beyond work and family lies squarely in her love of
needlework. She enjoyed sewing, knitting, quilting, and crocheting, having crocheted
over three hundred personal names. She also crocheted countless articles for the Daily
News Cheer Fund. She was active in the Tuesday 500 card club and volunteering at the
Decatur Co. Memorial Hospital gift shop.
Betty was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, daughter Diane (Richard
Critser), sister Ruth Knecht, and brother Herb J Scheidler.
She is survived by daughter Virginia (Paul) Gordon, sons Richard (Karen) Meyer,
Stephen (Jo Ann) Meyer, eight grandchildren: Carla (Ted) Wiles, Kyle (Rachel) Critser,
Stuart (Katie) Meyer, Alex ( Keely) Gordon, Brian Gordon, Adam Meyer (fiancé Jessi
Hoffman), Dylan (Madison) Meyer, Suzanne (Bill) Moyer and eleven great
grandchildren, son-in-law Richard Critser, sisters: Dorene Bruns and Carol (Rock) Effron
and sister-in-law, Marge Eineman, brother-in-law Al Knecht and many nieces and
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in memory of Betty to the St Mary’s
