ARCHBOLD -- Rebecca Emma Meyer went home to be with her Lord on Saturday, September 1, 2012, in the leukemia unit at Cleveland Clinic. She had been a patient there since August 4.

Becki was born on March 10, 1948, to Bernard F. and Virginia A. (Hovey) Wolf  in  Defiance, Ohio. On June 22, 1968, she married Michael Charles Meyer in Fort Wayne, Indiana. She was the proud mother of two sons, Joseph (Diane) of Ney and Richard (Jennifer) of Defiance She was blessed to have six grandchildren, Elizabeth, Eli, Madeline, and Helen of Ney, and Isaac and Charlotte of Defiance. Becki graduated from Fairview High School in 1965, and attended International Business College in Fort Wayne, earning an associate degree in accounting. She worked in the business world in Indiana and Ohio, concluding with the Farmers and Merchants State Bank in Archbold, where the Meyers have lived since 2000. Becki's love for music was fulfilled by joining Sweet Adeline International in 1969, and singing with choruses in Fort Wayne, Bryan, Ohio, and the Pride of Toledo Chorus, along with various quartets. The bond of singing grew many lasting friendships and lots of great memories. During all that singing, she still found time to do craft work with her mother, making beaded rings and necklaces. And working on counted cross stitch projects could be done about anywhere she traveled. And then there was the scrapbooking she had started in 1969-70.

It has documented all of her life, the singing, both hers and her husband's Barbershop Harmony activities; the boys as they grew up, graduated, served their country, got married and had children. The "cropping" sessions were another outlet for sharing ideas and making more friends.

Becki is survived by her husband, Mike; children, Joe and Rich; and her sister, Ruth Trott of Montpelier.

Having donated her remains to Cleveland Clinic Research, there will be a memorial service celebrating her life on Saturday, Sept. 15, at 11 a.m. at St. John's Christian Church, 700 S. Defiance St., Archbold. Memorial gifts may be made to: American Cancer Society/Hope Lodge Cleveland; or St. John's Christian Church building fund.
