Carmen Edwards Meyer, BHS '42 (1924-2012)

May the Lord comfort the family and friends of Carmen we pray...

Carmen M Meyer, 87 passed away peacefully August 10, 2012 with her loving husband, Ted CP Meyer & son, Richard C Meyer, & daughters Lynne C Retmier & Sharon A Adams at her side with Elizabeth Hospice.

Carmen was born December 17th, 1924 in Blodgett, Missouri to Jewell Boyd Edwards & Della Gertrude Holifield. By 15 she & family moved to Burbank, Calif. where she completed HS. She worked at Lockheed, lived at home with her parents who rented rooms. My dad saw this redhead at work & then a picture in the house he was renting a room from & asked about her. This was in November, 1942. The romance started & they were married December 31, 1942. They both decided that was a good day because there was “always a party to go to”! This year is their 70th year together.

Carmen was a meticulous homemaker & fulltime mother in the So Ca, when the children were small. After that she worked at Farmer's as an underwriter & made that her career until retirement. In 1994 Carmen & Ted moved to Oceanside, Ca.

Carmen was preceded in death by her parents, her three brothers, & one sister. She is survived by her husband Ted, son Rick, daughters Lynne & Sharon, their spouses, five grandchildren, their spouses, fourteen great grandchildren, one great great grandchild, & two nephews.

You will be dearly missed & I love you mom!
