Lorraine “Bee” Meyer, 85, of Bowling Green died surrounded by her family Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2019 at Pike County Memorial Hospital in Louisiana.

A Mass of Christian Burial was held at 10 a.m., Wednesday at St. Clement Catholic Church with the Rev. Henry Ussher officiating. Burial was in St. Clement Cemetery.

Visitation was from 8 a.m., until time of services on Wednesday at the church.

Bee was born Oct. 23, 1934, in Bowling Green, the daughter of Frank and Catherine Grote Niemeyer. She married Melvin B. Meyer July 31, 1952. He survives.

Other survivors include a son, Douglas Meyer and wife, Brenda of Madison, Ala.; brothers, Bob Niemeyer and wife, Judy, Fred Niemeyer and wife, Mary Carol, and Ansel Niemeyer, all of Bowling Green; a sister, Delores “Butch” Meyer and husband, Art of Bowling Green; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and great-nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; a brother and sister-in-law, Victor and Rose Ann Niemeyer; a sister, Frances Schroder; and great-nephew, Cameron Bagley.

Bee always had a smile on her face. As a devoted member of the St. Clement Catholic Church she participated in the church choir and could be found helping the ladies sodality in the kitchen at many church functions.
Her love for adventure led her to many traveling trips with her brother Ansel and sister Delores.

Bee worked from the age of 16 alongside her family as a book-keeper for Niemeyer Tractor in Bowling Green until the early 2000’s.
When Bee wasn’t working, she could be found mowing her yard to keep it in pristine condition. She loved flowers and gardening. Bee believed in a well-balanced meal when preparing food for the family. Always having to make sure the table settings were perfect and that the meal was served properly with the right amount of meat to vegetables ratio.

Serving as pallbearers were Scott Meyer, Bruce Meyer, Curt Meyer, Jeff Meyer, Doug Meyer, and Keith Scherder. Serving as honorary pall-bearers were Bob Tepen, Tim Niemeyer, Steve Niemeyer, Todd Niemeyer, Jim Huckstep, Bob Schuckenbrock, and Bruce Scherder.
Memorials may be made to St. Jude’s.

We now have a new guardian angel in heaven. Regardless of your relationship with her, we all have been enriched by her presence in our lives.
