Linda Jean Meyer
Linda Jean Meyer, age 71 of Greenwood, Nebraska, gained her beautiful angel wings on Wednesday, June 5th, 2019 at Bryan East hospital surrounded by her loving family. Linda was born on April 29th, 1948 in Lincoln, Nebraska to Vernon and Gertrude (Brakhage) Stewart. She was baptized and confirmed in the presence of God. She married the love of her life, Larry Lee Meyer, in Lincoln, Nebraska on January 21st, 1970. Together they had two sons, Brian Keith Meyer, Michael Shane Meyer and two stepsons Darin Lee Meyer and Robbie Lynn Meyer.
Linda loved many things, but her love for her family was the deepest of them all. Although she would never admit it, her fondest love was for her husband, Larry. Linda and Larry loved traveling and seeing the country together. They went many places, but Miami, Florida; Dallas, Texas; Seattle, Washington; and Las Vegas, Nevada were their favorites. She also loved weekends spent at the campground with family and traveling to watch her granddaughters to play softball. Linda also had a deep love for her two sons, Brian and Mike. Weekends spent at the race track with them was her absolute favorite. Watching her sons work together while Mike raced and Brian made all of the fine tunes on the car was something Linda loved watching. Of course she always had something witty to say when things didn’t go right, but she always had the best of time! Although she loved her two sons, she loved them even more because they blessed her with three grandchildren, Ashley Jean, Kristen Lee, and Paige Nichole. Linda loved attending their school activities, she would never miss a softball game or volley tournament. You always knew when Grandma Meyer was at the game due to she was either screaming at the umpires or giving a spectator a hard time. Linda was also blessed with a great granddaughter, Amberlynn Fay. She loved a good snuggle session with her. Family was by far the most important thing to her, and she would definitely let you know by the hundreds of calls and text messages she sent on a daily basis (even though she really never quite figured out how to use her iPhone, it was a miracle the screen wasn’t cracked from her poking it so hard). Holidays were also a very special time for her. She got to spend them with all of her brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, and cousins. She loved their time together, but she loved them even more because she got to give everyone a hard time. Family really did consume every ounce of her heart.
Linda enjoyed the simple things in life; sipping on a good cup of coffee, getting a pedicure, and watching copious hours of Country Western shows. You wanted to talk to Linda in the morning? You better wait until she had about five cups of coffee pumping through her veins. She would never turn down coffee with anyone, her pot was always on. She loved starting her mornings with a couple cups of coffee with her sister-in-law Jean Stewart and friendly neighbor Dallas Hayes. But the coffee did not stop there, she would attend daily coffee gatherings with some of her best friends. Although her love for black coffee with one packet of Sweet-N-Low ran deep, her love for a large Carmelious with an extra shot of espresso and no whip cream from Scooters Coffee ran even deeper. Linda also loved an afternoon spent at the nail salon. You give her a deluxe pedicure with purple toe nails, and she would be one happy camper! If you didn’t find Linda drinking coffee at her table or at the nail salon, you could find her in front of the television watching old Country Western shows. It did not matter if she saw the episode one time, or twenty times, she was watching it.
Linda is survived by her husband of 49 years Larry Meyer, their two sons; Brian and Mike (Melissa), two stepsons Robbie and Darin, along with three grandchildren; Ashley, Kristen, and Paige, great grandchild; Amberlynn, and three granddogs Baby, Tanner, and Daytona. Linda is also survived by her siblings Janice (Guy) Horn, Jerry (Penny) Stewart, Kenneth (Jean) Stewart, and James Stewart and bother-in-law Bob Wischman. Her nieces Pat (Bob) Timblin, Paula (Bob) Akers, Dusty (Kevin) Larkins, Stacey (Brad) Glathar, Sherry (Fred) Starr, Jodi (Kelly) Lathrop, Janette (Mike) Kipina and Sandy (Mike) Bills, and her nephews Tommy Smith, Mark Stewart, Eric (Dotty) Stewart, Joel Stewart, Ronnie Stewart, Scott Stewart and Terry (Deb) York. Along with many cousins.
She was preceded in death by her parents Vernon and Gertrude Stewart, brothers: Ivan (Betty) Stewart, George Stewart, and John (Joyce) Stewart, and her sisters Dorothy Comstock, Barbara Ann Wischman, Ruth (Bob) York, and Judy Thoms.
