Mary "Colleen" Meyer
Mary Colleen Alexander Meyer was born March 18, 1930 in Springfield, Missouri, to her loving parents Cecil and Josephine Agee Alexander. She passed away on November 19, 2017 after complications from a hip fracture on November 1.
She worked alongside her mother as a telephone operator during her high school years and after she graduated. In 1948 she married Robert (Bob) Lee Meyer. To this union two beautiful daughters were born, Rhonda Leigh and Sharon Lynn. In 1967 she started working at the Marshfield Elementary School as secretary and retired in 1992 after 25 years.
She and Bob enjoyed fishing and camping with family and friends. She loved family reunions and it was important to her that the generations knew each other and stay in touch. After Bob’s passing, she and Mack enjoyed following the Marshfield Lady Jays, MSU Lady Bears, and grandsons school activities.
The things that she was the most proud of were the people she loved, family and friends, and the respect from her heritage, both the Alexander and Agee sides. She was a member of the Marshfield Christian Church and currently attended the United Methodist Church for the last several years.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her brother and sister-in-law J.C. and Barbara Alexander; Husband Bob Meyer; and a special friend of 27 years, Harry “Mack” McNabb who was loved by her and her family.
She is survived by daughters Rhonda Meyer, Springfield, Sharon Fraker (Andy), Marshfield; grandsons Nathan Fraker (Lauren), Battlefield, Justin Fraker and Cody Cox, Springfield; niece Susan Alexander Horning, St. James; nephews J.B. Alexander, Owasso, OK, and Kirk Alexander, St. James; and several cousins.
