Condolences

So sorry! Prayers for all

Karen, I'm sorry to hear of your mother's passing. You and your family are in my prayers.

My parents and later my wife and I were longtime neighbors of Meg and Neal out on Silver Road. In 1979 I was feeding a horse that abruptly turned around and kicked at another horse, but hit me instead, breaking three of my ribs. I managed to get into the house (this was long before cell phones) and I called Meg, who drove right over and got me all taken care of. I remember well her no-nonsense but humorous comments about standing in the right place at the wrong time, and forever afterwards enjoyed her dry sense of humor. She was a treasure and will be sorely missed.

Sending thoughts and blessings to your family.

Meg Maurer ~ her gift was her respect and true interest in everyone. She treated people with dignity, grace and kindness; a person who made the world a brighter place in times of sadness and would add to celebrations of good news as well. She and Neal owned the McIntire Funeral Home after my grandparents, W.W. Ted and Madge Mowrey. Our families have been friends for many decades. I know it takes people with her attributes to lift others up; whether it's a joyful time or whether it's in a person's greatest time of need. I will miss her friendship, her laugh, her common sense and her wit; but certainly will never forget her! Love to Janis, Karen and families

Janis and Karen, my heart felt condolences to you on the passing of your mom. Meg Maurer. She will be missed by many. She was always kind hearted and understanding as well as a classy lady. Respectfully, Tom Davis
