Events

Wilbur J. Meyer, 89, of Hamburg, died Thursday, July 21, 2016, at Aspen Place in Greensburg. Born June 19, 1927, in Franklin County, Indiana, he is the son of Catherine (Niehoff) and Bernard Meyer.
He married Cornelia Schebler Aug. 10, 1949, at St. Anne's Church in Hamburg and she preceded him in death April 21, 1994.
He was a lifelong farmer and a Rush County REMC Director for 18 years.
Like most farmers, Wilbur enjoyed good conversation and never met a stranger. While his strong work ethic didn't leave much time for hobbies, he did like playing 500 and Euchre and looked forward to reading the newspaper each night.
Wilbur also listened to country music, was a baseball fan, followed the Indianapolis Indians, had a love for animals, especially dogs, and apparently a real weakness for fried chicken. His family will miss his pleasant, ever-present smile.
He is survived by his daughters, Shirley (Roy) Kieffer of New Point, Wanda (Larry) Lecher and Donna Kieffer, all of Greensburg; sons, Eugene (Andie) Meyer, Bernard (Kim) Meyer, all of Hamburg; 10 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren.
In addition to his wife and parents, he was also preceded in death by sisters, Bernice Dierckman, Betty Lou "Pete" Forthofer; grandson, Cody Meyer and son-in-law, Mike Kieffer.
Visitation will be from 4 to 7 p.m. on Monday, July 25 at Weigel Funeral Home. Funeral services begin at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, July 26 at Holy Family Church in Oldenburg with Rev. David Kobak, O.F.M. officiating. Burial will follow in St. Anne's Cemetery at Hamburg.
The family requests memorials to St. Anne's Cemetery or Hospice of Decatur County.
