Nye Meiner, 87, of Hazen, went home to the Lord on April 3, 2015. She was born and attended school in DeWitt, Arkansas. Nye’s survivors include her son, Mark Meiner, and her brother, C.L. Roy.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Louis and Ida Roy and her husband of 68 years, Gerald Meiner.
Nye was a homemaker, bookkeeper in the family arming business, seamstress, published genealogy author, and very creative with home and organizational projects. She also taught adult Sunday School at the First United Methodist Church in Hazen and was involved in several church and school organizations.
Her interests were her relationship with the good Lord, church activities, family’s wishes and well being, friends, and genealogy. As a young woman she set the grade point average at her high school for many years and accomplished that achievement in three years. She was an avid reader with a love of trivia and history. She also made home and school movies.
Nye was always there to lend an ear to others in their time of need with compassion for the other fellow.
Nye will truly be missed as she always was concerned with the right way to do things in life, particularly her interactions with other people holding their wishes and well being above her own.
Visitation will be held at the First Methodist Church, Thursday, April 9, 2015 from 9:30 A.M. to 10:30 A.M. Funeral services will immediately follow visitation. Burial will be in the Hazen Cemetery.
