Box 160 OBITUARY ELSIE NIEMEYER Elsie Niemeyer, 78, passed into heaven Mon- day, Nov. 16, in Norwalk, at home in the country sur— rounded by loved ones. A memorial service Will be held at a date in December when family members will be home. Please share a memory of Elsie with the family by visiting her life story page at www.oleary funeralscom. O’Leary Fu- neral Services — Celebra- tion of Life Center in Nor- walk has been entrusted with funeral arrange— ments. Elsie is survived by her son, Jon (Kristy); grand- children, Emma (Austin) Trabing; Christopher Ni- emeyer; Michael Niemey- er; brother, James (Vallie) Palmer; sisters, Charis Brown; Trella (Dwane) Walker; Donna (Dick) Fir- gard; Pat J. Palmer (Harold); brother-in-law Joe Pringle; sister—in—law, Carolyn Palmer and 23 nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert (Bob) Niemeyer; parents, Donald Eugene and Florence Louise Palm- er; brothers Carlton Palm- er; Wallace Palmer; sister, Susan Pringle; and broth- er-in-law, Emmet Brown. Elsie Louise (Palmer) Niemeyer was born Au- gust 15, 1937 in Algona. She graduated from Ven— tura High School in 1955 and married Bob Niemey- er on June 2, 1957 in Gar- ner. The two of them moved to Des Moines where their son, Jon, was born. Bob opened an inde- pendent insurance agency in Fort Dodge. There, Elsie was a homemaker, worked for Fort Dodge Labs and J.C.Penny’s clothing store. Elsie enjoyed hunting, fly— ing, raising dogs and camping with her husband and son. In 1976, Elsie and Bob bought a farm near Wood- burn. They continued cap- italizing on their fondness for the out—of-doors by, raising cattle and taking hunting trips out west. Gardening and decorating her homes were creative Elsie Niemeyer outlets for Elsie. Sharing stories and observations with her own twist were her means to putting oth— ers at ease and perhaps a smile on their faces. After her husband passed away in 1995, Elsie moved back to Fort Dodge and then to Des Moines to be near son, Jon. Her grandchildren reaped a storehouse full of laughter, sweets and grandma-style spoiling. Her family was her purpose. Also, it was nothing for Elsie to em- brace her son’s in-laws: Kristy’s (Fletcher) parents, siblings, nephews and nieces. This part of her family holds a substantial amount of fond memories of Elsie as well. Elsie’s heart was big, tender and full of fun. She blessed ev- eryone she met with her genuine, loving spirit. When diagnosed with lung cancer 1 1/2 years ago, she chose to live out the remainder of her life just as she had been living up to that point. She did not let the disease that would one day finally take over stop her from enjoying the beauty of the outdoors, the laughter of good friends and family, the tenderness of daily living with loved ones, or the sweet things in life (like donuts, cinnamon ' and pecan rolls and Butter— finger candy bars)! Her team of Hospice caregivers saw her sweetness inter- mingled with a lot of spunk and determination. She would rather talk about theirvfamilies than her ailments and endure pain rather than miss out because of drowsiness. =9!!- God sees us through our Mother’s eyes and rewards us for our Virtues. ~Ganeshan Venkatarman =63“!- O’ary Funera! 8: Cremation Services Eetebration of life Came! .x 3 Eric E.
